Sips and Scents

We finally made it to the weekend!

Is it just me or did this week seem like three? Which is why I’m so ready for a cocktail! It might still be winter but I’m thinking Spring with this drink.

Pear Vanilla Rosemary Cocktail

Before we make our fancy cocktail first we’ll add some zing to it with Rosemary Simple Syrup.

What you need:

1 pear, chopped

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup water


What you do:

Add in everything in a small pot and just simmer for about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat, let cool, and strain.

Now for our cocktail!

What you need:

2/3 cup pear juice

4 tbsp simple syrup

2 oz vodka


pear slices and rosemary for garnish

What you do:

Simply fill two glasses with ice, divide your vodka, and add two tablespoons of syrup to each glass. Then, add 1/3 cup pear juice to each glass. Garnish and enjoy the amazing smells!


So, since your kitchen now smells AMAZING from this fabulous cocktail I thought since I talked about perfume on Monday, that today along with my drink recipe I would also share five perfume hacks that I swear by.

  1. Never have  your perfume in the bathroom. The steam from the shower will eventually ruin it.

  2. Moisturize first, your scent will stay longer.

  3. The best time to spray your perfume is right after the shower and before getting dressed.

  4. Perfume in your hair lasts longer but will dry out your hair. Spray your brush and then brush your hair.

  5. Spray tissue paper with your favorite perfume and line your dresser drawers with them for a better scent.

    I hope your weekend is full of sweet smells and delicious sips!
