Summer has arrived. Temperatures are rising.The Fourth of July holiday is upon us. Fireworks. Beach vacations. Backyard barbeques. What shoes do you turn to for your warm weather wardrobe? Whether your footwear of choice is a sexy strappy sandal, an exotic espadrille, a casually chic thong, or a bold printed peep-toe, you can find them all in one rich color — red. Yes, things really are heating up.
Now, what to cool you off during these hot summer months? Check out The New York Times for suggestions on drinks and ingredients that are “Refreshing by Definition.” The S&C team also want to remind you of a few of our personal faves:
- Frozen Sangria — Miss Mojito fixed this fun, fruity, frozen blend for daytime imbibing at the beach.
- Berry Caipirinha — Ms. S&C made this bright and fruity cocktail with blackberries, but think of what you can do with fresh, ripe raspberries and peaches?
- Basil Gimlet — Miss M muddled mint’s distant cousin in a gimlet, and after trying them herself, Ms. S&C concurs that aromatic basil is a great ingredient for summertime drinks.
- Watermelon Lemonade — One of Ms. S&C’s favorites last summer, so hang tight for those plentiful watermelons to come.
S&C wants to know: What shoes are heating up your closet this summer? And, what are you drinking to cool off?
