Signature Cocktails - Part 1

Stacey Stephens

It's perfect porch weather, and that means that party season is right around the corner. Instead of waiting for someone else to flip open the calendar, circle a date, and get a plan in motion, my challenge for you is to plan something special for the month of May

Truth be told, I think a lot of us get intimidated by the idea of hosting:

"does my house have to be perfect? does my house to be clean? do I have to be perfect?! I can't host people... I wouldn't know where to start."

Simple answer: definitely not. People appreciate you because you're you - messy bedroom and dry shampooed hair included. Let's work this month to redefine the idea of "hosting a party" and let's make it less about fancy and more about fun. Don't get me wrong - a full-on day party with invitations, florals and decorations is totally up my alley but we can't forget about the gatherings that are last minute, thrown together by the people you love. 

To help get you started, I've gathered a few of my favorite #girlboss friends and have asked them for their favorite SIMPLE cocktail recipes. Perfect for porch swingin' and warm spring nights, choose one below, call your 6 favorite friends, and pick the date. I promise you'll have a ball.

xo!

Carter Margarita

1. One part or 2 ounces of tequila. (Get a 100% agave tequila; you can find one for a good price)

2. One part or 2 ounces of Cointreau or another orange-based liquor, like Triple Sec.

3. One part or 2 ounces of lime juice. Opt for "real" lime juice, if you can. You can tell the difference!
