So far, the refreshing summer cocktails we’ve explored here on the blog have been confined to the Caribbean. There’s the Daiquiri from Cuba and the Dark and Stormy from Bermuda. But how about making it more of a world tour? Today’s drink comes from Italy and is one that I first got to experience in the place of its origin. Here’s how to make an Aperol Spritz.

I wasn’t given much information about Whirpool and P&G’s new clothing care appliance called the Swash prior to it showing up at my house other than that it was “confidential” and that I was one of a handful of influencers tapped to check it out, test it, and provide some feedback to the brand. I had no idea what it looked like (though their Instagram account started to offer vague ideas) or what it did exactly, but the notion that it could possibly be a viable alternative to dry cleaning was definitely intriguing, both in terms of dollars potentially spent as well as convenience. So, now that I’ve had a chance to spend some time with it, let me break it down for you.

As I mentioned, since I didn’t have a “proper” vacation planned this year, I decided at the last minute to take a trip out to LA. Going somewhere without a plan (or, more specifically, doing anything without a plan) isn’t really my style, but in this case, I decided to go with it. So, armed with a handful of recommendations and a vague sense of what I was going to do, I hopped on a plane for the City of Angels. Here’s a recap of some of the stuff I did, people I saw, places I went, and a few of the restaurants and bars I checked out.

Layering is something we usually reserve for spring, fall, and winter. And honestly, it’s probably the last style-related item on anyone’s mind during the summertime. Keep the layers light, though, and it’s something that can work.
