I’m on vacation! And, even though that means I’m social distancing in rural Northern Oregon, and not Ibiza, it’s still very nice to escape from my own house which I have barely left since April. Just because I can’t travel to a legendary Mediterranean holiday destination (I’m not bitter) doesn’t mean I can’t dress like I’m there. I’m really loving the matching/co-ord/set thing, it feels so easy, put together and perfect for going on holiday. While I haven’t found my perfect matching set yet, I thought this color-blocked look had just as much impact. This skirt is the Breathtaking Tiger Lily’s skirt from Modcloth. The top is the Linen Tide Back Cropped Tank from Lou&Grey.
As far as I’m concerned, there is literally no better time than any time to drink a Negroni. Since I’m in Oregon, and there’s a pandemic on, I’ve had to be a little flexible with my cocktail ingredients. I remembered to bring the Campari, of course, but I definitely forgot the sweet vermouth. Luckily, I happened to have one of my favorite white ports on hand, and it's a pretty great substitute. Pour it, stir it with your (clean) god damn finger and enjoy it while looking at, talking to or doing something that you love.
1 oz. Gin
1 oz. Campari
1 oz. Picchetti Mission Angelica white port
Pour ingredients directly into a chilled rocks glass filled with ice, stir with finger.
