Friday Frock and Fizz

The past ten days can be summed up in half as many words: no rest for the wicked. Amidst publicity campaigns for three major films, each with big events this past week, I have been a gypsy outlaw, avoiding sleep to keep the good energy of this fun blog going. I wonder how your week was? If you are in New York City, don’t let the forecast for rain get ya down. Instead, pour yourself a Stormy Morning and get on with it!

You can make it at home with the following ingredients:

1.5 oz Rathman Créme de Violette
1.5 oz St. Germain elderflower liqueur
1 oz fresh lime juice
4 oz Champagne
Lime wedges to garnish

Pour the Créme de Violette over ice, add the St. Germain and lime juice, and top off with Champagne.

I have a Friday secret to share. In the upcoming weeks and months, JBD will feature more personal style photos, from my favorite showrooms to my very own closet. Pair today’s fizz with a frock full of color. Cheers for a lovely weekend.
