Autumn’s End: A Pumpkin Spice Latte and a Stroll

Autumn around Town: Pumpkin Spice Style
It’s difficult to believe, but autumn is almost officially over. Once we’re into turkey leftovers and the holiday shopping season has officially begun, it is full-on winter. 
So before the week is up, take a last walk around town, admire what last leaves of the fall foliage are still hanging on. Enjoy the gorgeous fall colors that surround us, grab a latte–pumpkin spice or otherwise–and breathe in the final days of autumn.

Happy Preakness Stakes Day!

Happy Preakness Stakes Day!
It’s mid-May and the second race of the Triple Crown is upon us. Personally, I’m rooting for California Chrome. I think he can do it and I’m not alone. Let’s just hope the racing gods agree!
Go, California Chrome, Go!!!

Kentucky Oaks 2014

Kentucky Oaks 2014

Each year, on the eve of the Kentucky Derby–one of the most prestigious tests for 3-year-old colts in Thoroughbred racing, Churchill Downs plays host to the Kentucky Oaks, an equally glorious competition for 3-year-old fillies. Today is that day, the First Friday in May. And while there are endless reasons to talk about the race card and the horses, there’s no denying that a race day like Oaks Day brings out the style maven in a good many ladies at the track.

Taking advantage of the strong female presence on the track, Oaks day has become an opportunity to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer and to honor survivors with an annual Survivors Parade. Racing fans also show their support by wearing pink and sipping on the traditional Kentucky Oaks cocktail, the Oaks Lily (a portion of the proceeds from sales of the Oaks Lily is donated to breast cancer research, so consider it drinking for the cause).

While pink can sometimes seem a bit too girly for those of us no longer in our twenties, a classic style like this Valentino dress will adapt to just about any woman’s style.

And while you’re getting ready, you might very well get thirsty . . .  

Here’s the recipe for the Kentucky Oaks official drink:

Kentucky Oaks Lily:

  • 1 oz. Grey Goose vodka
  • 1 oz. Sweet and Sour Mix
  • 3 oz. Cranberry Juice
  • Splash of Triple Sec 

Once the ingredients are mixed, place the Grey Goose® Oaks Lily® in a tall glass with crushed ice, add a straw and garnish with an orange wedge and cherry.
