Watermelon Tequila Cocktail
Via Food & Wine
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup granulated sugar
8 cups diced seedless watermelon
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 3/4 cups blueberries
3/4 cup lightly packed fresh mint leaves, plus 8 sprigs for garnish
1 1/4 cups silver tequila
Dissolve sugar into water in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring often. Puree watermelon in a blender until smooth, then strain through a fine-mesh strainer over a bowl, pressing gently with a rubber spatula to extract the juice. In a large pitcher, combine the simple syrup, lime juice, blueberries, and mint leaves and gently muddle with a wooden spoon. Add the watermelon juice and tequila, then refrigerate until chilled. Pour over ice and garnish with mint.
Our thoughts: This drinks takes the ol' tequila-soaked watermelon from backyard summer parties and classes it up enough for a formal affair. It would make a refreshing addition to an outdoor cocktail hour or tented reception.

THE BACI GIVES HOPE PROJECT by Baci Designer
Sometimes a small gesture can mean everything, which is why we love Ohio-based stationary and signage designer Baci Designer's new initiative, The Baci Gives Hope Project. Each month, Baci gives away an encouraging print to people who could use a boost of happiness. To further their mission, they've launched the “Get One, Give One” campaign when purchasing an encouraging design from Baci Designer's Shop. For an additional $5, choose to give a print to a friend who could use cheering up or donate the second print and they'll ship it to the next person on their growing list.
We can't think of a better way to #spreadthelove than to combine giving a beautiful gift to someone you care about with a small act of kindness for someone who needs it most.
