National Cocktail Day + #DrinkingWithSusie

If you haven’t heard, it’s National Cocktail Day. So what better way to celebrate than with a cocktail-inspired post?!

I had the pleasure of teaming up with my friend Susie who runs the ever so popular Dallas happy hour blog, Susie Drinks Dallas, on her recently launched series titled none other than, #DrinkingwithSusie. In this new series she is inviting some of her friends over, who also happen to be local bloggers or creators in some form or fashion, to create a cocktail together and do a short interview.


I gave Susie a few requests in order to create our delicious cocktail concoction:

  • must be served in the copper pineapple she so kindly gave me as a Christmas present
  • use Champagne – she used Veuve Clicquot to be exact (she doesn’t mess around)
  • must be light and refreshing

Basically I wanted it to feel somewhat “healthy” because who doesn’t like to simultaneously detox while they retox??


The cocktail included:

Absolut Elyx


Coconut Water

Lemon Juice

Honey Syrup

Coconut Shavings

From everything off-the-shoulder to frayed denim and bandanas, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites below!
