If you’re on the East coast today, the gray skies may have you feeling a bit blue. But it’s Friday! (Friday… gotta get down on Friday. *Rebecca Black voice*) Be the bright spot in everyone’s day with a pair of neon patent leather pumps, like the Palm Springs by Ruthie Davis. The 5 inch stacked heel, platform and peep toe are staples in shoe styling at the moment and make them versatile… like your attitude. However the neon spin on the color blocking trend that’s so big this season really makes them stand out. If you don’t want to go too far out there with your look, wear them with something neutral, like khaki or olive dress.
It may be raining, but it’s still HOT out. Cool down at happy hour with a Pisco Porton Lime Raspadilla. With a flavor that’s somewhere between vodka and tequila in strength, the Peruvian white spirit is a great playmate for the tangy taste of lime.
Method: Fill blender with ice and wet ingredients. Blend until frozen. Rub the rim of a tall glass with a lime slice so that the sugar will stick, then rim the glass with sugar and add blended ingredients. Garnish with a lime slice.
After a few of these, you won’t care about the weather or the week you’ve had. However, after too many, you also won’t care that your speech is slurred and your stumbling down the street. That said, be responsible.
