I’m in the midst of serious Gatsby fever. Typically, I don’t get too excited over a movie but from the music to the glitz and glamour this movie left me in awe. Shockingly, it’s the cocktails that had me most excited! In the spirit of the recent release, I’ve picked a few picture perfect cocktails that will be making a strong come back from the 1920’s to my table this summer.
So what does Jay Gatsby or Daisy Buchanan drink?
I think F. Scott Fitzgerald himself would approve.

It can be hard to incorporate new colors into your wardrobe. I purchased this dress online and when I received it the color was much bolder than expected. At first I panicked, but there is no better way to spice up a bold color with another bold color. Hello, teal & red combo. It’s a bold concept, but a neutral base is a great place to start. Then you can play with accessories, this is where I choose to add my spice with a red clutch. Sometime the best outfits are unplanned and you just find what works as you go! This is defiantly a color combination I will be wearing all summer.
I couldn’t be more thrilled that summer is a little more than a week away. While I enjoy all seasons, summer is by far my favorite. I’ve already started planning my things to do before Labor Day; including dinners cooked entirely on the grill and a cocktail recipe list that continues to grow. This weekend is a friend’s surprise birthday BBQ that promises to be a wonderful kickoff to summer. Have a great weekend!
