Coconut Rosewater Blackberry Smash Recipe:
Handful of blackberries, 3/4 oz fresh squeezed lime juice, 1 oz cream of coconut milk, 2 oz gin, 1/2 tsp rosewater.
Muddle a blackberry or two at the bottom of your glass and top with crushed ice. In a shaker mix all of the liquid ingredients and shake for 5-10 seconds. Pour over the ice, give it a slight stir, and add more ice if needed. Garnish with extra blackberries.
Best drink spot: My favorite spot to get a drink is either Local Edition or The Library at Bourbon and Branch. Both have a throwback speakeasy vibe that I love for a Saturday night out with friends or my S.O.
Top trend of the moment: I love that buying secondhand is becoming cool again! I'm so inspired by people who find awesome pieces that you just can't get at a typical store. This applies to fashion and home decor! I'm even more inspired by all the women who are using the internet as a platform to start their own small businesses finding and selling amazing secondhand pieces.
Favorite travel destination: Favorite places I've been include Paris, Sedona AZ, and Montreal. Bucket-list places I would love to go to include Iceland, the Swiss Alps, and Banff.
Hidden gem in your city: So many places!! For shopping/inspiration my favorite two stores are Reliquary and Metier both in Hayes Valley. A beautiful mix of vintage and small batch local makers for clothing, home accessories, and jewelry.
Speaking of jewelry...
