The Very Best Summer!*
Check out these 5 fun ways to relax and take in the spirit of summertime…
1.THE MOST DELICIOUS DESSERT IDEA
It doesn’t get much better than making s’mores around the campfire. Well, actually it does. These yummy add-ons will make the classic treat even more decadent!
Add these to your s’mores:
White chocolate squares
Dulce de leche
A dash of chili pepper
2. THE EASIEST HOSTESS GIFT
Order a case of prosecco, cava or sparkling rosé so that anytime you need a present, you’ll be ready. Worst-case scenario? You’re stuck with a bunch of bubbly. (We’ve had bigger problems.)
Here are some great options!
Segura Viudas Brut Rosé, $10
Mumm Napa Brut Rosé, $20
Freixenet Cardon Negro Brut Cava, $12
Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco, $15
Miraval Cotes De Provence Rosé, $25
3. RENT A CAR
Your weekend errands are about to get a lot more fun. Rent a convertible for the day and ride around with the top down and your favorite music blasting, it will really get you in the summertime mood!
4. ICE CUBES & FRUIT
Elevate your H2O by infusing ice cubes with fruit and herbs. They won’t just make your drink look pretty; they will also add a punch of flavor.
Try these cubes:
Strawberries + Springs of Thyme + Lemon Zest Curls
Blueberries + Basil Leaves
Raspberries + Lemon Slices
Cucumber Slices + Lime Zest Curls
5. THE NO-REGRETS PLAN FOR GOING A LITTLE WILD
Bring out your inner child, if only for a day or two, with a removable tattoo. These perfect-for-summer ones are from the website Tattly ($5 for set of two). If you’re feeling daring, try them out on date night; they look cute peeking out from a tank top or sundress. (www.tattly.com)
