A Beverage Station + A Delicious Summer Drink

Doesn’t it always seem like there is never enough counter top/table top space when entertaining? A fun, simple fix to this is to create a beverage station. A place to store cups, napkins, and the must haves for your signature drink.

I grabbed this cart and everything on it (minus the alcohol, limes, lemons and flowers) from World Market. I also chose this bench from World Market.

Dining bench

It is actually an outdoor bench, but I have been dying for a bench at my dining room table. I love the industrial look of it and lets face it, if it can stand up to the elements–it can stand up to my kids. A dining bench is great for entertaining. Lots of folks can pile on and it saves on space and helps eliminate the “chair pull-out effect”. You know, when your dining space shrinks because all the chairs are pulled out.

The pillows are World Market too. The floral one is actually a cloth napkin from World Market turned pillow.

To mix this yummy drink called the “Lorini” throw in 1 oz of Gin, 1/2 oz of Campari, 4 pieces of lime, Mint Leaves and top off with Lorina Pink Lemonade.

It has been so long since I mixed a drink. This was such a fun drink to relax with on a Friday summer night.
