Rosemary Grapefruit Whiskey Sour

Last week Lindsay and I had such a great little getaway in Halfmoon Bay with Glamping Hub! We got there with great plans of exploring the Sunshine Coast and looked up hikes and parks but by the time we got settled in these amazing tents we just didn't want to leave! On our way we picked up a few groceries for breakfast, wine & beer (obvz) and some ingredients to make these yummy rosemary grapefruit cocktails! They were super easy - easy enough to make while camping...er glamping, there was nothing about this stay that was roughing it. Dan and I have really been into cocktails lately, we've been collecting different bitters and mixes and are always looking for interesting concoctions, if you have any favourite recipes, please share!

Rosemary Grapefruit Sour
makes 2 drinks

in a large mason jar or cocktail shaker combine:
- 2 oz whiskey (we grabbed one of those miniature bottles, I think it was 2 or 3 oz)
- juice of one grapefruit
- 3 sprigs of fresh rosemary
- simple syrup - make beforehand, or mix sugar with equal parts boiling water until combined

1. Pour whiskey and grapefruit juice to jar.
2. Muddle one sprig of rosemary into the simple syrup (next time I'm making rosemary simple syrup!) 
3. Add 2 oz of simple syrup to the jar.
4. Add a handful of ice cubes, put lid on tight and shake well. 
5. Strain into two cocktail glasses and garnish with fresh rosemary & a slice of grapefruit. 

April Showers

It's hard to believe we took these photos just over a week ago and all the cherry blossoms in Vancouver are gone! There's the short window that lasts only a few days when they fall off of the trees and everywhere you go it looks like it's snowing pink flower petals, it's magical. My favourite kind of "April showers." 

A few things about this outfit that I love. I finally found the perfect pair of vintage mom jeans from our friends over at Hey Jude Shop! A few weeks ago I popped in on my way home from the studio to try on their amazing selection of denim and was so excited to find a few pairs that were perfect. I've wanted some vintage Levi's for ages, and am always looking at thrift stores but they're just never quite right, but these are perfect!

My tee is from Everlane and I'm so in love with it. I've had a white tee for a long time and it's my favourite, so I ordered another one in grey stripes a few months ago and still love it. I love everything behind that brand and slowly want to add more and more pieces because they're great quality, and a great company I can stand behind. We talked a bit about it on our post about Dutil Denim about investing in more timeless pieces that can last more than one season, and it is definitely something that has stuck with me and has really made an impact on what I'm buying lately! So yay for t-shirts that don't turn into different ones after you wash them! Unlike every Forever 21 item I've ever bought ;)

I was definitely geeking out over these blossoms. and may have been sitting in the middle of the street as well! #noshame
