Gin + Elderflower Cocktails


Happy hump day, friends! Whether your week has been on the rough side and you need a pick-me-up, or you have a ton to toast to, this gin and elderflower cocktail is just the ticket for your Wednesday evening. Or, save it for the weekend and impress your friends! (Or both!)

Angela and I whipped these up a couple Saturdays ago and they were super tasty and refreshing. The perfect drink for a hot summer day. The combination of the gin, elderflower, mint, and lemon makes them light and spritzy. 

Read on for a look at how to make these yourself!


You'll need lemon...


 ... and mint leaves!


Pour an ounce of your favourite brand of gin. We used Tanqueray for these.


After you've poured your ounce of gin, add club soda and elderflower syrup. We bought ours from the grocery section at Ikea.


Add in those little garnishes for both taste and Martha-factor.


Grab some friends and enjoy!


What's your favourite DIY cocktail? Are you much of a mixologist? I'd really like to try mixing up more fun drinks – would you be interested in trying them out with me? :)

Enjoy!

Love Your Life iPhone Wallpaper





Hello there and welcome to Friday! This week has been a little bit hectic, but it's also been filled with lots of exciting work and new projects. Plus, the new Prenta launched on Monday and so I've been riding that high all week.

To celebrate the launch of the new site and a new Summer collection, I thought I'd put together a little wallpaper that we can throw up on our phones and carry around. Not a bad reminder to have throughout the day, hey? This quote is dear to my heart and it was a joy to bring it to life in paint.



If you feel like doing a bit of Etsy shopping, I've got a 20% discount going on to celebrate the new collection. Just enter PRENTASUMMERLAUNCH to get 20% off anything in the shop.

Enjoy your weekend!
