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!

Pretty Patio

Since we spend so much time out there in the summer — I’ve been thinking a lot about investing in making our patio more comfy and cute. I recently noticed that there’s a lot of lovely outdoor furniture at CB2! Since most of it is on sale right now, I thought it would be a good time to post what’s catching my eye. I love the nod to decades past and my favorites are the gala gold lounge chair, the maya wood outdoor chair, the la rêve day beds and sectionals, the caprice outdoor chaise lounge, the pod hanging chair, the smoke grey and brass dining table, the midas gold dining chairs, the sophia black dining chairs, the brass bistro table, the acapulco black egg chair, the brava dining lounge chair, the lucinda mint stacking chair, the wire terracotta planters, the isla white planters, and the ixtapa loveseat. That blue swirling tile is so good! More HERE.

Lovely Things #7

Hello! YAY! Another Lovely Things post comes together. I’m clearly feeling pretty summery over here and I feel like a lot of these things would be nice wedding gifts or birthday gifts for Cancers and Leos. My birthday is coming up and I’m trying to resist the melancholy, but I suppose that’s probably futile. I’m pushing it back by being really enamored with what people are making right now and having fun doing deep dives into handmade magic rabbit holes. I hope you like my finds, too! See MORE LOVELY THINGS. ♥

Stone fruit is coming, so I’m thinking about this Peach Maple Soda recipe.
