Friday Distractions: Red Oasis

Friday Distractions: Red Oasis

Happy Friday y'all!

Writing in today to let you all know Carve Designs has some fresh new and amazing prints in stock in some of our most popular styles.  Check out the site ASAP and click the What's New tab for a direct line to our summer and early fall prints.  The featured print today is Red Oasis, a happy and tan friendly color and print, Red Oasis flatters all skin tones.


To compliment the red color, our drink selection this week is a summer friendly beverage, the Watermelon Martini made with the fresh watermelons bursting from the hot summer fields.  It's sort of a no-brainer because all you are really doing is pureeing Watermellon and adding in the liquor and lime juice.  Easy, elegant and refreshing!



  • 3 cups seedless watermelon
  • 2 oz Absolut Citron
  • 1 oz Midori Melon liqueur
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup ice cubes

You can basically make it with your eyes closed:

Dice one cup of watermelon into small cubes. Puree remaining 2 cups of watermelon in a blender and add vodka, liqueur, lime juice and ice and blend well. Pour 6 oz martini into each martini glass, add 1/4 cup remaining watermelon into each glass and garnish with watermelon and lime slices.

Song pick is a mellow groove song by Groove Armada.  It's not at all a new release, but it just jumped back on our radar and we wanted to remind you how very good Groove Armada is.  So incredibly easy to listen to and their song, At the River, will definitely help you mellow out on your Friday afternoon.
