Lovely Things #9

Lookie here! It’s another Lovely Things post in less than one month. I almost made my Cool Summer Drink Recipes post a Lovely Things roundup, but decided I’ll keep these posts more varied for things that I feature. I think the common threads in #9 are gold, mint, and dipping a toe into fall with the heat of summer still at your back. Find more LOVELY THINGS.

I love this whole look — especially the sunglasses and the jumpsuit.

Cool Summer Drink Recipes

If you’ve been following me @honeykennedy on instagram this summer, you know that I’ve been doing a lot of cooking, baking, pickling, and syrup making this year and really making the most of our amazing farm share from Helsing Junction Farms and all the herbs, roses, berries, and tomatoes I’m growing in our garden. I recently made my own Ginger Vanilla Thyme Simple Syrup to add to soda water, cocktails, and other quick, happy-making recipes. I also made Lavender Rose Mint Simple Syrup that I’ve been enjoying over fruit and yogurt several times a week. I love simple drinks made with fresh and interesting flavor combos, so I put together a little roundup with some cocktails and mocktails that have sparked my interest lately. Have fun and feel free to ask me about making simple syrups!
