ttF Fashion Staples Series Diary: VeeV Supper Club
Tonight, my friend Carter Reum invited me to his Beverly Hills pad for an intimate summer soiree he was hosting with the Supper Club LA. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t get the memo that it was summertime. Even though it was cold out I still wanted to look like it was July. So I paired nude with a bright blue, which just so happened to coordinate with my bracelets and the delicious VeeV cocktails. If you aren’t familiar with the spirit, I highly recommend giving it a try. It’s healthy (açaí is a power fruit) and the prickly pear prevents hangovers!

Get the look…
Random fact I learned this week: It wasn’t the girls of Sex and the City that started the Cosmopolitan craze. It was actually Madonna! Did anyone else know this? I did some more research on it and included the deets in an Ask Style column on How To Throw A Sex and the City Party on Mystyle.
But even if Carrie & Co weren’t responsible for making Cosmos a world wide phenomena, I’m still psyched to toast pink martinis with my girls tonight before attending a Sex and the City 2 screening in Santa Monica. In fact, I need to go figure out what to wear to channel my fave character: Charlotte York.
Sure, an ice cold Bud is All-American. But for those of us that don’t drink beer, a fruity cocktail is more refreshing. This recipe isn’t too sweet and the lemon makes it perfect for a hot July 4th day.
Red White and Sapphire
1 1⁄2 oz. Bombay Sapphire Gin
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
3⁄4 oz. simple syrup
3-4 fresh raspberries
3 oz. club soda
Garnish: Lemon twist and a fresh raspberry
Muddle Raspberries with simple syrup and lemon juice. Add ice, Bombay Sapphire and stir well. Add more ice and top with club soda.
My friends sent me a Bombay Sapphire goodie bag for my party last night. We used the gin to make classic martinis but for July 4th I want to try one of the recipes included with the gift. I’ll test it out next week and if it’s delish, I’ll post instructions on how to make the red, white and Bombay blue cocktail.
