Friday Distractions (& Giveaway!): Holiday Season Has Us Distractedon
Welcome to November—and the holiday season!! Just after eating one piece too many of sugary Halloween goodness, comes the onslaught of holiday cheer, and in some cases, holiday stress. But alas, as the chaos of the season sets in, we are here to challenge you to embrace that calm content feeling that inspires us at the beach. Take a 5 minute break before you walk out the door every morning to remember who you are and what grounds you. Simply make the choice to smile—it's the perfect way to start your day in the right direction. And should you need a little encouragement to unwind at the end of the day, keep reading!
Today, we are bringing you a fresh tune that's bound to start your weekend off right and keep things chill this holiday season. Cedar Wood Pines, by The Brother Comatose, is a song with beauty, soul and a mellow rhythm. The music video is a take on an old country western, so give it a watch and zone out to the easy vibes of this gorgeous tune.
No better way to decompress than with a beverage that takes a little bit of artistry and is not only delicious but gives you a whole lot of pride to create. This lovely seasonal drink called The Figa is made with a fig infused vodka prepared by you a couple days in advance. This drink is so seasonally on point and will help you unwind.
12 oz fig-infused vodka
6 oz earl grey tea
9 oz fresh tangerine juice
Fresh fig wedges
For Fig-infused Vodka: Combine equal parts dried figs and vodka in a vacuum-sealed bag and sous vide at 170* for 2-3 hours or until figs start to become colorless, or combine equal parts dried figs and vodka and store in airtight container in refrigerator for 2-3 days.
Combine vodka, tea, and tangerine juice and refrigerate. To serve, stir well and pour over ice into rocks glasses. Garnish with a fig wedge.
