it’s 4th of july weekend. and in boston, that pretty much means the whole city migrates down to the cape. this was the perfect opportunity for james and i to really focus on our new place and get everything unpacked and squared away before my family’s annual beach week trip.
at this point in the move, we’re about 85% done. we finally got our living room furniture and new bedroom dresser. but we’re still in the market for a small dining room set and 1-2 accent chairs. now, because we’ve got most of our stuff down, we were able to really enjoy saturday with fun errands like the liquor store and whole food flower department to stock up on necessities. obviously.
while looking for a new bloody mary mix, i stumbled upon owl’s brew – classic . this is a tea specifically made for cocktails, it’s a little stronger than homemade and is infused with lemon and lime. when i saw it, i immediately remembered that i wanted to concoct a version of the angry arnold palmer cocktail that i had a few night ago. while this isn’t an exact match, it’s one that i would happily drink on warm summer days while relaxing with my husband-to-be.
