You know certain outfits and cocktails seem to go hand-in-hand? (Think body-con LBD with a dirty martini, or a glass of champagne and a sequined skirt.)
The team at Gracie B. thought so, too. They rounded up a few bloggers and asked us to choose an item from their new spring inventory and match it with a cocktail. Fashion and adult beverages? Yes and yes, count me in.
I chose to style the super versatile Drawstring Day Dress. Total wardrobe workhorse. A lovely dove gray neutral color can be paired with almost anything (read: appropriate for every season, just layer up or strip off). The style is a flattering faux wrap dress that is easy and timeless (and if it’s good enough for Diane von Furstenberg, it’s good enough for me).
I loved this piece so much, I pulled the trigger and bought it.
So what cocktail goes well with a no-fuss, city-chic outfit? I hunted around for something easy + fresh, just like the dress: a lemon prosecco cocktail I’ve dubbed Lemon Bubbly. Ingredients (per glass):
- 1 cup of prosecco
- 1 shot of vodka
- 1 spoonful of lemon sorbet
- A few mint leaves for garnish and flavor
The finished product is light and refreshing– definitely going on my drink menu in heavy rotation come spring and summer.
