calling all my starbucks lovers. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
you’re the people who go to starbucks to order a passion tea lemonade in the dead of winter because #yum
i feel you. i FEEL YOUR PAIN. or i at least understand the straight up craving for some deliciously tart and sweet passion tea. and i raise you one better! alcoholicccccc tart and sweet passion tea. ugh.
first off ^ this is the best thing that’s happened to me in a longggg time… with the exception of learning about teavana’s loose leaf passion tea. UUHMF. so good.
good news for me: i can have this stuff on whole30 (and since I’m coming down with a cold, NOOOO, I’m drinking as much tea as I can over here)
bad news for me: i can’t have the lemonadeeeee part on whole30. womp womp. speaking of which – it’s day 4 and i’m going stronggg. and i created an amazing burger that i can’t even use words to explain. but i’ll likely try in the near future… obvi
DEB DID YOU KNOW I BROUGHT THIS ALL THE WAY FROM SEATTLE TO NY WITH ME? i’ve been saving it for something special.
because that ^ my friends is HOMEMADE LIMONCELLO. yeah…
which btw. is on my list to make. so eventually i will know deb’s secrets.
lemon is a flavor that just makes me think about BURSTS of sunshine. and summer. and heat. and humidity. OH OH THE BEACH. andddd that entire summer that bianca and i just continuously drenched our hair in lemon juice and laid out in the sun in an attempt to get “natural” highlights.
you can admit you did it too. no one will tell your mom that’s where all her lemon juice went.
ohhhhkay. but really, isn’t that the most gorgeous color you’ve ever seen?
don’t lie to me. i’ll know.
sometimes I have to tell myself to pump the breaks on the pour shots. but I looooove them. I think they’re so pretty and I love the action it brings. plus it makes me feel like I’m bringing you RIGHT THERE. to the moment when I made the drink.
plus they look like majestic waterfalls. (I think that’s the second time I’ve said majestic today. weird).
anyyyway. you guys know I’m a mojito lover. and a lover of sweet drinks. and wineeeee. and angry orchard. and margaritas. but I could totally see this becoming my go-to spring drink.
its practically hydrating. or at least it tastes like it is. and like, didn’t i read some where that tea is good for your metabolism?
ugh those ice cubes are so cute. and um. those glasses?? i know you’re wondering hwere they’re from – britt got them for me for christmassssss. so pretty.
now, go and have yourself an inside picnic complete with a refreshing cocktail! xoxo
