Hi Darlings! Here’s another one from the archives.  I thought it was appropriate to post this particular article as it was written on a Thursday back in May.  Who doesn’t love a good healthy smoothie?

Original Post

Happy Thursday Darlings  As you may know, I’m on a major health kick, so I thought I’d let you know what’s in today’s smoothie cocktail.  Here goes…
  • 1 Handful Kale
  • 1 Handful Spinach
  • 1/2 Apple
  • 1/2 Banana
  • 1 Tablespoon Flaxseed
  • 1 Handful Strawberries
  • 1/2 cup spring water

Blend, pour into a martini glass, and sip daintily, like the healthy, and chic Sylista you are.

Be Creative, Be Inspired, Be Amazing!

My XO Cafe…

One of my favourite liqueurs is Patrón XO Cafe.  This super smooth coffee liqueur which is a blend of Arabica coffee and premium Patrón Silver tequila, is one of the nicest drinks to have.

Great on its own; or try, half a cup Patron XO Cafe, a couple of tablespoons of Carnation milk with a few cubes of ice in a blender, rotated on high, will cause you to have created one creamy and potent cocktail.  Try it in your coffee one Sunday morning, you’ll never look at coffee the same way again!

Happy Wednesday!

A Scorcher!!!

A delicious Pimms Cup

It is absolutely scorching here in DC! We were up to 98 degrees on Wednesday, and yesterday, WeatherBug said we hit 100!!! It’s not cute, because at these temperatures, everything is wilting, including me. It’s a little hard to look chic while melting, unless you’re lounging at the pool at the King & Grove Tides Hotel (one of my favourites) in Miami.  So to keep you cool, here is one of my favourite summer time beverages, which is called a Pimms Cup  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/bobby-flay/pimms-cup-recipe/index.html

Also another variation of this recipe, (which is the recipe my sister taught me) is to pour approximately 2 ounces of Pimms No.1 in a tall glass and then fill the rest of the glass with D&G Jamaican Ginger Beer, add a slice of lime and… Cheers!

This is where I need to be ~ the King & Grove Tides Hotel in South Beach, Miami ~ click for details

Stay cool, drinks lots of water and enjoy your Pimms Cup!

Smooches!
