I am feeling so hopeful that some al fresco entertaining is in my near future with all of my friends and family on their way to be vaccinated. You better believe this party-loving-extrovert is going to be ready to host once it’s safe again! I’m honing my cocktail skills (tough work!) to get ready, and this Blackberry-Ginger Moscow Mule is going straight to the top of my menu when it’s time to gather again. It’s seriously crisp and refreshing, perfect for sipping around a picnic table on a warm summer night, and an ideal way to use up juicy farmer’s market blackberries. Get the recipe below: PS: Recognize these glasses? My limited-edition candle collection with Feather + Finn comes in sturdy glasses that are perfect for repurposing around your home. You can clean them out after the candles are done burning to use for makeup organizers, to hold pencils, and of course — mix up a cocktail in!
