On April 1, the new Ciroc Summer Colada is set to hit shelves nationwide. With Ciroc Coconut and Ciroc Pineapple both serving as major hits for the vodka brand, Summer Colada is sure to be as lit, turnt, [insert flame emoji here] as a spirit can get. Although the latest boozy addition has yet to be released, I went ahead and put on my Lushworthy thinking cap to craft the following drink recipes. Check ’em out!
2 oz. Ciroc Summer Colada
3 oz. Pineapple Juice
Splash Of Lemon-Lime Soda (Optional)
Splash Of Fresh Lime Juice
Combine Ciroc Summer Colada and pineapple juice in a glass with ice. Stir and top off with lemon-lime soda and lime juice. Garnish with lime wheel.
Epic Summer Punch
1 part Ciroc Summer Colada
1 part Ciroc Mango
3 parts Pineapple Juice
3 parts Mango Juice
Fresh Lime Juice
Build ingredients in a large pitcher. Squeeze the juice of about one and a half limes. Stir and add lime wheels to pitcher.
So, I missed out on watching the Grammys last night, and instead tuned in to “The Walking Dead,” but I ended up catching a bunch of highlights on social media. Although there were tons of dope performances, there was one video in particular that stood out to me. And that was of Rihanna and her homegirl taking shots of their booze of choice (my guess would be whiskey) from a bedazzled flask.
This, my friends, is why Rihanna is absolute Booze Goddess goals. First off, she understands that with booze, sharing is caring. Sure, her dainty flask probably only held about four shots. She could have easily been stingy and chugged to her heart’s desire, but she was gracious enough to let her friend also get her sip on.
Also, RiRi understands the importance of BYOB. Listen, the Grammys are nearly four-hours long. Liquor. Is. Needed.
Lastly, leave it to Rihanna to turn a flask into the season’s must-have accessory. In fact, I would guess that Etsy is killing it today when it comes to bedazzled flask sales.
If you too want to channel your inner Booze Goddess, might I suggest my “Booze Over Boos” coffee mug? I’m currently accepting orders via PayPal. Feel free to reach out to me via email to place an order!
With the new year, I’m pleased to announce a new venture. A few days ago, I launched The Lushworthy Shop, a small (but growing!) shop for all the lushes out there! The shop currently features two items, the “Breakfast Of Champs” crop top and the “Lushworthy” tote bag. I’m currently running a promotion where both items ship for FREE. This offer ends on January 9, so be sure to hope on it soon!
Be on the look out for new items, and even more offers in the near future! Cheers!
Upon walking into Target yesterday, I immediately locked eyes on a tank top that read: “You Had Me At Pumpkin Spice.” [Sigh] The leaves have yet to hit the ground and already pumpkin spice is invading coffee shops and big-name retailers across the nation. And with news of Captain Morgan’s pumpkin-inspired, Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast, pumpkin spice has now entered the world of booze.
Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast is described as “a fall-inspired shot that blends Caribbean rum with favorite seasonal flavors – including fresh pumpkin, cinnamon and other autumnal spices.” I’m not gonna lie, I’m curious. And from the description, it sounds like the latest from Captain Morgan could mix really well with Baileys Pumpkin Spice (or similar).
With the news of their latest flavor, the folks over at Captain Morgan have concocted the fall-friendly, Apple Jack-O cocktail, which sounds like a win. You can find the full recipe, below.
Also, the limited-edition Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast can be purchased for $15.99 (750 ml bottle). Cheers!
1.5 oz. Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast
4 oz. chilled apple cider
Combine all ingredients in a glass filled with ice, stir and serve.
Thanks to the addition of downtown Atlanta’s latest eatery, Amalfi Pizza, you don’t have to travel hundreds of miles to enjoy a slice of Italy. Amalfi Pizza, which opened weeks ago, sits right above Red Phone Booth, and boasts a menu full of–You guessed it, pizza. With the assistance of two, 6000-pound wood-burning brick ovens, the restaurant slings a little over half a dozen, specialty pizzas.
During their media event, I had the opportunity to sample the quattro formaggio pizza with Amalfi’s special, ricotta-stuffed crust. I have to admit I was feeling a little Kevin McCallister-like with my very own cheese pizza. It was absolutely delicious though. Size-wise, if you aren’t that hungry, you could easily split a whole pizza with a friend. It’s pretty sizable. I absolutely loved their specialty crust. They don’t skimp on the ricotta, and the fact that it’s house-made is much appreciated. You loyal, quattro formaggio. You loyal.
Booze and beauty don’t normally go hand-in-hand. Well, unless an evening getting all dolled up is later spent sipping vodka martinis. So, I was pretty excited to discover that a new favorite of mine, Folie Apothecary’sPalo Santo + Peru Balsam All Purpose Mist is made using grain alcohol, which is the key ingredient in a variety of spirits.
I’m sure there’s very little grain alcohol in the mist, but it’s still nice to know that one of my new favorites is a tad Lushworthy.
About the mist…it smells amazing. There are notes of pine, mint, lemon, and vanilla. It’s also very much all purpose. You can use the mist on your body, face, and linens. Personally, I use it for everything, but it serves as a nice refresher on the body, given these sweltering summer months. Additionally, the various ingredients (white sage oil, peru balsam oil, vetiver essential oil) can help in reducing inflammation, fading dark spots, and more.
Folie Apothecary’s Palo Santo + Peru Balsam All Purpose Mist is available for purchase on Etsy for $22. They’ve also just released a new scent, Fleur de Mer. So, be on the lookout for that, as well.
