Now that the calendar has officially moved into July, I feel the need to share with you a few of my favorite summertime martinis – with inspired outfit of course! So cheers to summer my loves!
The Milky Way
1 ½ cups of ice cubes
¼ cup cold water
2 fluid ounces vanilla-flavored vodka
2 fluid ounces white crème de cacao
2 fluid ounces Irish cream liqueur
1 tablespoon chocolate syrup
1. Chill a martini glass by filling it with 1/2 cup of ice and cold water.
2. Place 1 cup of ice cubes into a cocktail shaker. Pour the vanilla-flavored vodka, white crème de cacao, and Irish cream liqueur over the ice; cover and shake vigorously. Dump the ice and water from the martini glass and drizzle the inside of the glass with chocolate syrup. Strain the cocktail into the glass to serve.
What to Wear:
Pulling from the milky deliciousness of this after-hours treat, you can start with a nude base alå maxi dress style. The design of this cocktail is in the details – how amazing does it look with those chocolaty stripes? Throw in your own version by adding some striped accessories – a bag or shoes maybe? Finish with your favorite lip gloss and you’re set!
2/3 cup pineapple juice, chilled
1/3 cup vanilla flavored vodka
1 dash grenadine syrup
2 pineapple wedges
2 maraschino cherries
1. Pour the pineapple juice, vodka and grenadine into a shaker full of ice. Shake, then strain into two martini glasses.
2. Garnish with a piece of pineapple and a cherry on a skewer.
What to Wear:
With pineapples taking the forefront as summer 2014’s novelty print, what better way to celebrate than with a styled cocktail! Throw in some tropical prints via trendy tee or novelty bag and accent with hues of pinks and cream for a delicious ensemble that will surely sweeten your afternoon! Mix in a bit of ombre for a delightful twist on this classic summertime treat!
Nice Sunday !!
