Friday Cocktail Hour. Tea-Rose Spritz.

Friday, March 27th 2015

Mood: Inspired by the haze of half light and tea stained skies, we're sipping a feminine infusion, a blend of dark and light, black tea and faint florals for a feminine take on a classic spritz. The perfect drink to take you through the twilight hours from afternoon into evening….

Cocktail: Tea Rose Spritz

30mm /  1 ounce Rose Infused Syrup

30mm /  1 ounce Lemon Juice

60mm / 2 ounces Earl Grey Infused Gin

Soda Water 

Sugar

Dried Rose Buds

To make rose infused simple syrup, combine 2 parts sugar to 1 part water with 4-5 dried rose buds (to taste) and simmer over a very low heat for 5 minutes, until sugar is completely dissolved. Allow to cool & remove roses. 

To infuse Gin add 2 tbsp of loose leaf earl grey tea to 8 ounces (approximately 240mm) gin and allow to steep for several hours. Strain tea leaves. 

To make the Spritz, build in a glass over ice the syrup, lemon juice and infused gin. Stir and top with soda water, garnishing with dried roses.

In Search Of.

Friday, March 27th 2015

With a trip to New York around the corner, days are filled with planning our Bridal Week schedule, editorial shoots and some exciting events that we're currently working on. Nights on the other hand are spent searching through dreamy, light filled loft spaces for the perfect location to open a second office for The LANE... in NYC!  It's long been a dream to have an office space / apartment in this incredible city, and I can barely believe it's coming to fruition.  So here are a few spaces from my Pinterest board this week, filled with sundrenched blank canvas spaces, exposed white bricks and floor to ceiling arched windows.
