Urban Rustic

Ever since I moved back to Montana, I’ve been dreaming of cabins. Cabins in the mountains, cabins in the woods, cabins on lakes. Cabins, cabins, cabins. But, unfortunately, looks like I’ll be stuck in town for a while, so while I’m wistfully dreaming of a cozy cabin away from the light pollution of our small town, I’ll add a few urban rustic touches here and there to get the feel for it.

Bourbon Peach Spritzer

bourbon-peach-spritzer-1

One of the best drinks I’ve ever made has to be this Breakfast Belle that was inspired by a drink at ABC Kitchen in New York. In fact, it was so good, that I wanted to recreate it, but this time, utilizing oranges and of course, peach.

It’s a more sophisticated version of the Belle, with complex flavors meant for a bit more grown up palette. Plus, it gives you an excuse to drink bourbon during the day, so it’s a win-win in my book!

Ingredients (makes 2):

  • 2 oz bourbon (I like Maker’s Mark)
  • 2 oz peach schnapps
  • Juice from one orange
  • 6-8 drops of orange bitters
  • Soda water to top
  1. Mix the first four ingredients in a shaker, and shake well.
  2. Pour over ice into high-ball glasses.
  3. Top with soda water, fresh mint and a slice of orange.

Brands I Love : Kron Kron

kron-kron

It’s no secret that I love whimsical shoes. So when I was in Iceland and discovered the brand Kron Kron, needless to say, I was totally hooked. Each pair is super interesting and completely different from anything else on the market today. And between the amazing shoes, and Kron Kron’s incredible clothing line, it’s no surprise that the women in Iceland are enviably stylish.

If money were no object, I would be head to toe in this brand!

This has been one of the best weeks ever. I’ve spent tons of time catching up with old friends, made it to the lake twice, and am finally starting to get the wheels turning in my dad’s new office. It’s amazing what a couple weeks in Montana can do for your perspective and soul! Here are a few of my favorite things from around the web (lots of fun videos this week):

Have a great weekend!!!
