Flamingo Fizz - A Gin Cocktail to Try!

This winning recipe from Coastal Living Magazine is inspiring me to give this pretty pink cocktail a try this weekend for my daughter's birthday!  Off to the grocery store to grab the ingredients -

  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) gin
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) pomegranate liqueur 
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) 100 percent pomegranate juice 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • egg white
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) seltzer
  • Garnishes: pomegranate seeds, lime slice, fresh mint sprig -  I think raspberries would be fun too!
Combine first 6 ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Cover and shake 30 seconds or until sugar is dissolved. Add cream and egg white; cover and shake 10 seconds more. Add a few small ice cubes; cover and shake vigorously 2 to 3 minutes or until you can no longer hear the ice cubes. Strain into a cocktail glass. Top with seltzer, and add garnish.

Will let you all know how it turns out - might have to do some experimenting before she gets here!

Also thinking that Flamingo Glassware might be in order....

Or maybe these pretty Tropic Flamingo DOF Glasses?

We are Featured in HGTV Mag!

So excited to be part of the HGTV Magazine January-February 2017 issue, filled with lots of color updates and fun ideas! 

We love the whole collection of modern decorating ideas that the editorial team, and the HGTV celebrities have curated to show off in the article,  'Little Finds, Big Impact" - everything from boldly designed table lamps, to throw pillows and brightly painted side tables. 

"109 affordable home accessories that pack a punch without breaking the bank" - not to mention a whole page of "Mirrors pretty enough to be art" - and that is where you will find us, with our cool Red Pinon modern Rectangle Shell Mirror. Perfectly suited to add a happy seaside boho look! We love the deep red color and polished mother of pearl textured pattern in this mirror, a modern global feel that will instantly add a fresh pop of design to any room.

Can be hung horizontally or vertically - and can create an impact in any space.  Think about an entry way or a coastal bathroom update!
Hope you get a chance to pick up this January-February 2017 issue, or are lucky enough to have it arrive in your mailbox.  So many great ideas that are easy to do, and are not expensive, but could create an easy update at your home for this season.  A little imagination, some fresh paint, a new mirror and a few throw pillows and you can have a whole new look at your coastal home for a small cost.
Don't forget to enter the HGTV Dream Home Contest - really awesome beach home in St. Simons Island, Georgia - never know, you might win!  (At least I am hoping that I do!)

Relax and Live at the Beach Every Day of the Year!
