A Weekend-Worthy Plan: Small Plates, Summer Soundtracks, Festive Dresses, and a Paloma Spritz

Food & Drink

In partnership with our friends at Miami Cocktail Company

Getting into your weekend feelings might be a different process this summer. Deserving companions
include: our favorite mixed spritz in a can, a cool outfit, some fun games, a vibey album, and many snacks.

First Up, the Cocktail

The spritz might be the ultimate cocktail for summer weekends, and the perfectly mixed spritz in a can might be
the simplest way to approximate the feeling of a poolside bar while you’re prepping at home. We’re currently
obsessed with the line of organic canned cocktails from Miami Cocktail Company. Our favorite is the incredibly
refreshing Grapefruit and Hibiscus Paloma.

Frock Out

Breezy, playful dresses are the antidote to sweatpants. We picked ones that each offer some
combination of texture, pattern, and color and that feels especially festive.

Set the Mood
(and the Table)

Setting a table complete with candles and flowers is not something we often do for ourselves,
which is why it helps create a sense of occasion. And: You’re worth it.

Weekend Tunes

Don’t overthink your weekend soundtrack. Cue up some nostalgic, summery favorites. Hanging
outside with no sound system? The Gramercy Speaker is as gorgeous as it is cordless.

Take the Tapas Approach

One way to bring the party to your weekend: Serve party food! An all-apps-and-small-plates meal
feels like more of a treat.


Ceviche

Ceviche

This kind of tastes like guacamole with a little fresh halibut thrown in, which is probably why we could eat
the entire bowl in one sitting. Be sure to cut the fish up small so the lime juice “cooks” it quickly.

Bulgogi Chicken Lettuce Cups

Bulgogi Chicken Lettuce Cups

Bulgogi is a famous (and seriously delicious) Korean marinade made with soy, ginger, garlic, and usually
brown sugar. Here we seasoned mini chicken meatballs with all of those flavors and served them in bite-size
lettuce cups for a healthy and flavorful spin on Korean BBQ.

Summer Salad Rolls

Summer Salad Rolls

We love eating leafy greens with every meal, and this handheld option makes it way more fun. Roll butter
lettuce, cucumber, avocado, and tons of fresh herbs in rice paper wrappers and serve with a tangy peanut sauce
for dipping—for all the nutrition of a green salad with none of the mess.

Be a Gamer

Apart from managing your playlist, this weekend vibe is screen-free. Go for more lo-fi
entertainment options and classic (or unconventional) party games.
