For those in Britain, the sun has finally arrived and is meant to be here for good. Yowzers! In the U.S. you’ll have just finished celebrating the 4th July and hopefully now the fireworks have settled you too will be feeling the rays. Here’s how we’re spending the first weekend of summer.
Mrs Lilien’s blog never fails on the ‘fun in the sun’ front and the Cocktail Swatchbook is the zenith of all that is good during the summer. It’s also a great way of using up the misfits on your drinks trolley. Tequila? Yes, there is a palatable way to start drinking this one thanks to Mrs Lilien’s Watermelon Swash – a corker!
Sunglasses! Yes, ever since we started carrying those Karen Walker beauties the specs ‘wardrobe’ has just kept growing. Feeling the full retro sensibilities of Anytime for cocktail hour – we’re sure Mrs Lilien would approve!
It’s time to dust off the bbq too, in between dashing in to catch Murray in the Wimbledon final, it’s time to get your marinade and barbecue sauce on! If the recipe we’ve been given for the latter is a hit, we’ll let you know. You can’t go too far wrong with the Bon Appetit magazine. And let’s not forget the culinary prowess of Rosie too – her gelato and bbq recipes come highly recommended!
