A SUMMER COCKTAIL RECIPE

WITH HINTS OF COCONUT, CRANBERRY, AND LIME


Hey guys, this week I’m celebrating my birthday and what better way to do it than with one of my favorite summer cocktails!

This recipe is low-calorie and it’s super simple, not to mention, it’s a great signature cocktail to have at your next summer gathering without putting in a ton of effort.  How cute are these tumblers by the way?  (similar here)

When you take a sip of this refreshing mixed drink, be sure to picture yourself on the beach front porch of a tropical cottage somewhere for the full effect.  This is what I do and it instantly relaxes me every time which is why I’ve decided to name it the “Tropical Cottage”.  It’s also really fun to ask people if they want a tropical cottage… 

Would you like a “Tropical Cottage”?  Please let me know if you’ve tried it or would like to share one of your favorite summer cocktails.

As always, thanks again for reading!

 

Cheers-Ashley Nicole

  • Currently wishing I could smudge away this cold... if only it worked like that! 
Instead, I’ll be sipping hot tea and popping Vitamin C, but if you’re looking for a good read on “smudging” check out my latest blog post (link in bio) for some enlightenment on the subject.

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!

  • Just a smudge.... Have you ever used sage/smudge sticks to clear out negative energy? I know it sounds crazy but I absolutely swear by this method!!! Sometimes you just need a smudge, ya know?! P.S. you can now shop my looks and decor via @liketoknow.it

  • Finally got out and about after being sick for the last few days and found the most delicious tile pattern on the way to my car. This was someone’s walkway leading up to their home (don’t mind if I do). So glad no one was there 🤫 but I had to share because it was the perfect reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. I hope your day was filled with beauty loves! ✨

P.S. You can now shop my looks over @liketoknow.it 🤗 Simply screen shot the photo and follow me in the #liketoknowit app!
  • Really looking forward to the weekend and a little sunshine because it’s been raining here non-stop! ☔️ I’ve def gotten my money’s worth out of my @hunterboots this week, but now I’m ready for a change 👢
  • Does anyone feel weird when the new year starts mid week? It’s kind of like when you’re at the crossing between 2 states with one foot on both sides.... I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m working on moving forward but I’m also having to look back on things in order to get there. Does this make sense? #newyearnewbeginnings #makeitcount #wrapitup
  • Welcoming 2019 with open arms! Last night Jamie (my husband) and I spent a nice quiet evening at home. I made Hoppin John, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, and Pork Chops. We ended the night watching the ball drop from bed and slept in for the first time since I can’t remember when. It was perfect! Just exactly what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves for the 1st day of the year. Today we took down all the Christmas decor and talked about some things we’d like to do/change in our home this year with a fresh new perspective. Lots of ideas sparking over here! Looking forward to new beginnings and new projects! Hope y’all had an amazing New Year’s!

  • Cheers to the weekend! 🥂Currently contemplating whether I should take down our Christmas decor or leave it up til New Year’s Day. What are your thoughts on this? I need some advice 🙃
