Cheers: Honey Rooibos Cocktail

I cannot imagine starting my weekend better than with a refreshing cocktail, that is not too sweet, just the right amount of liquor and beautiful to look at. I always like to incorporate some form of tea when playing inside the liquor cabinet, perhaps it's because I drink tea, like some people breathe oxygen or because it softens and blends in quite harmoniously with most hard liquors without the over powering sweetness of fruit juice or soda, either way it hasn't let me down yet.

Ingredients: Serves 6

1 L strong rooibos tea, cooled
60 ml honey
the juice of 6 oranges or 2 cups fresh orange juice
1 cup brandy
6 lemon slices
1 cup fresh mint, extra to garnish

1. In a large jug, mix tea, orange juice, honey and brandy.
2. Crush mint and add to jug, chill in fridge for 1 hour.
3. Divide between 6 tumblers, add ice lemon and mint to garnish.

Fashion Update: The Stratement Tee

Or statement strapless tee or camisole, your choice, a rose by any other name...

The camisole was originally designed as an undergarment, worn as an extra cover-up with a low dipped neckline or short waistline, but for summer it was taking front stage. Worn instead of a shirt or bra, the camisole was paired with high waisted jeans or a simple skirt and the trend will continue into the next season, with a boxy blazer added to keep away the chill.

This fashion piece keeps with the more is less trend and works well when worn in neutral or soft colours. It has even transitioned into playsuits, taking them from festival to high street wear.

'But the pinkness and the whiteness of underskirts and camisoles, the frilliness of foundation garments, the rustle about the bustle and the fuss about the bust' - Gregory Maguire

Fashion Update : Lady In Red

It's the only colour to be seen in this week and as Bill Blass said it's the ultimate cure for sadness.

Be it postbox red or ox blood, a full outfit or simply shoes, soft and demure or short and fiery, show it off, be it for the one you love or simply yourself.
