From growing up in Los Angeles, studying in Ohio, starting married life in Manhattan, raising a toddler in Texas, I am not joking… literally everywhere.

Sweet Pear & Goat Cheese Crostinis with @scharglutenfree! Raise your hand if you know someone with Celiac disease?! I do!

That’s why I am teaming up with Schär to bust myths surrounding Celiac disease and offer up a divine gluten-free appetizer recipe for those hosting days when you need to be mindful.

Who here is vaccinated against Covid-19?! Who is about to get vaccinated?! Wahoo! (#PSA #ad) If you got the vaccine prick, then you’ve earned yourself a drink, my friend. The Vaccine Prick Cocktail is a cheeky take on the classic Penicillin (I know, I couldn’t help myself). Whisky, lemon, and Prickly Pear Dragon Fruit syrup, makes for a strong and sweet drink you deserve. I am vaccinated! Wahoo! Science, man… what a marvel and God-given gift! I am not only vaccinated to protect myself, I did it to protect my daughter (who is still too young to get the shot), my family, healthcare workers, and anyone else I may come into contact with. Why? Because of love. I genuinely love you, my fellow human beings. I feel so much joy in my heart to be vaccinated. I got the shot as soon as I could because my family has witnessed coronavirus horrors firsthand. My husband is a Pediatric Immunologist and has been on the frontlines since the pandemic started. He has seen the worst Covid-19 pediatric patients and worked tirelessly to help them. It’s heartbreaking. It’s not fair. And now, it’s preventable. Do your part, get the shot, and pour yourself a drink. And if you have any hesitation, please feel free to DM me and I will personally tell you about my experience getting vaccinated. I am here to support you and send out love, because we’ve only got each other. Tag 3 friends in your area who may need some extra information and encourage them to learn more about getting vaccinated at GetVaccineAnswers.org. The Vaccine Prick Cocktail 2 oz. blended scotch 3/4 oz. Prickly Pear Dragon Fruit Syrup (easily found at local liquor stores) 3/4 oz. lemon juice 1/4 oz. Islay single malt scotch Add the blended scotch, syrup, and lemon juice and syrup into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until chilled. Pour over ice in a tumbler. Top with the Islay single malt scotch and garnish with a cherry… you know you earned that cherry on top! Cheers! In Partnership with Ad Council.

Booklover’s Recipe for Relaxation: Cocktails, Hardcovers, & @Purple! (#ad) The last year and a half has been a doozy. It is times like these when we need to actively relax, take a step back, and find the little joys in life. That is why I am teaming up with today’s cozy brand to bring you a booklover’s recipe for an idyllic day of R & R. It’s time for cocktails, hardcovers, and Purple, my library-loving fiends! Here’s the ingredients (and a cocktail recipe!), you’ll need to put this together… Purple SoftStretch Sheets, the Purple Harmony Pillow, and a set Sleepy Jones x Purple Pajamas. Between the moisture-wicking fabric and the heavenly contouring Purple Grid Hex Technology, you’ll have cozy covered from every angle. Next you’ll need to pair the dreamy bedding with a good book! I highly recommend The Paper Palace by Miranda Cowley Heller. Love, lies, and secrets at a summer beach house… need I say more?! Lastly, you need a divine drink for page-turning sipping. Juniper, honey, and ginger add a punch of sweet warmth, while rosé mellows out the effect for a long-lasting sipping (while page-turning) experience. Rosé Colored Glasses 2 oz. dry gin 2 oz. ginger beer 1 oz. honey Rosé wine Dash of lime juice Stir the gin, ginger, lime, and honey in a wine glass. Top with rose and enjoy! All that’s left is mixing all these ingredients together and you have yourself a delicious recipe for relaxation. Make sure to check out @purple’s amazing line of mattresses and sleep accessories.

AD: Tart Cherry Spritzer + Grilled Pizza Pairing! If you are in need for a little patio dinner inspiration, then bookmark this post. All you need to do is mix up this refreshing summer cocktail, grill a frozen (yes, frozen!) @homeruninn pizza on the barbecue, and take in the killer summer vibes. In my opinion, grilling frozen pizzas is the absolute ideal way to enjoy them. Literally take the Home Run Inn pizza out of the freezer, throw it on the grill for 16-20 minutes over medium heat, and you’re done. Enjoy it with my Tart Cherry Spritzer and let the summer festivities commence!

The Islay Sea Nymph Cocktail: In honor of National Scotch Day, I have teamed up with @bruichladdich to create an ode to the ocean with the Islay Sea Nymph cocktail. The Classic Laddie bottle takes its stunning aquamarine color for the water along the Islay coastline on which the Bruichladdich distillery sits. With that in mind, my whimsical mixology fantasies started running amok. I envisioned a beautiful sea nymph rising from the green foam, tempted to venture onto land for a taste of this heavenly spirit. With whimsy in full swing, it was time to move onto taste! The Islay Sea Nymph cocktail takes cues from the flavor profile of the dram itself. Land meets the water’s edge with distinctive Scottish barley and a salty Atlantic breeze. Hints of ripe grapefruit and a fresh minty greenness add an undeniably summer flair as Prosecco bubbles tickle your nose like the ocean’s spray along the shore. The Islay Sea Nymph 2 oz. Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie 1/2 oz. Mint Simple Syrup Dash of Grapefruit Bitters Prosecco Pour the scotch over ice in a tumbler or Collin’s glass. Add the syrup and bitters. Stir gently. Top with Prosecco and garnish with grapefruit peel. Enjoy! Get $5 off a bottle with code “CLASSICDAY” from July 26-Aug 1. Visit: bruichladdich.reservebar.com/products/bruichladdich-the-classic-laddie Let it transport you to the magical shores of Islay and serve as a tribute to scotch on this holy day. But be wary of the siren call for mermaids are afoot… #bruichladdichpartner #laddieaqua #scotch #nationalscotchday #lexingtonphotographer #feedfeedcocktails #beautifulbooze #scotchwisky #scotchcocktails #whiskycocktail #whisky
