Happy August, lovelies! Sometimes Mondays can be rough, so today I’m sharing a Rosemary Lemonade Cocktail recipe made with some goodies from July’s Lilee box!
If you haven’t heard of Lilee yet, where have you been?? Lilee is a curated monthly lifestyle and beauty subscription box that sends you FULL-SIZE beauty and body products, jewelry, and more that you’re guaranteed to love!
What I love about them is that their boxes aren’t just filled with beauty and makeup products. Although I do love those things, it’s so much fun to be surprised every month with some exciting new lifestyle products too.
This month, the box was cocktail themed. So obviously it was my favorite box yet! 😉
Let’s see what we got inside this month’s Lilee box!
As always, their packaging is stunning.
How cute are these napkins?? They are a custom product made just for Lilee, and if they don’t make you want to invite all your friends over for cocktails, then I don’t know what will!
These made the perfect addition to my rosemary lemonade cocktail. Adding a sugared rim to your drink instantly takes your bar skills to the next level!
Citrus Bitters-Hella Company ($9.95)
These bitters are infused with four types of citrus pith, and this tiny bottle packs a HUGE punch! It’s perfect for adding to drinks or even cooking.
Muddler and Mixing Spoon-Lilee ($15.00)
My bar cart didn’t know what it was missing until I got this muddler and mixing spoon! The muddler was perfect for getting juice out of the lemon in this recipe, and the extra-long mixing spoon is something that you will definitely need for cocktails. The muddler is also perfect for infusing your water with fruit, too!
This amazing product alone is worth the price of a Lilee box! This is a MUST HAVE for those summer dresses and shorts we all love. This shimmering oil is very subtle and leaves your skin looking super healthy and glowy. I have extremely pale skin and it wasn’t too dark for me, so this would be perfect for anyone’s complexion.
I was so impressed with this lip and cheek gel because once you apply it, it doesn’t budge. (Seriously, the swatch on my hand lasted ALL day and had to be scrubbed off!) This is such a fun summer color to wear before a night out, especially when you’ll be eating and drinking and don’t want to worry about reapplying your lipstick.
You girls know I LOVE my lip glosses! Especially when they are plumping lip glosses that leave your lips a little bit tingly! This is a gorgeous color and looks amazing when layered over top of the Jello Shot Lip Gel.
Another thing I’ve been really into lately is skin care! Lilee always introduces me to some amazing skin care products that I wouldn’t have known about otherwise. (Like the amazing Kaplan MD Microfoliant I got last month, which you can read about here.)
These collagen wipes are great for removing makeup, but I love them because they left my skin SO soft, unlike a lot of other makeup-removing wipes I’ve tried. These wipes are infused with Collagen and Vitamin A, because it’s never too early to start preventing wrinkles!
Another reason to love Lilee? They give awesome samples! This month I got a Blue Lotus & White Tea Treatment Sheet Mask from Pur~Lisse, and a Prestige Brow Lash Brush. I love doing face masks on girls nights, and I’ve heard that this mask is really moisturizing.
Now, let’s make some cocktails! This recipe was included in this month’s Lilee box, along with everything to make them, excluding the vodka and fresh ingredients, of course. 😉
Lilee’s Rosemary Lemonade
You will need:
3 oz. Lemon Juice
3 oz. Vodka
1.5 oz. Simple Syrup
Hella Bitters-Citrus Flavor
1 Sprig Rosemary
To start, sugar the rim of your favorite cocktail glass.
Muddle the lemon in the bottom of the glass and add ice.
Pour in the lemon juice, simple syrup and vodka. Add club soda and bitters to taste. Stir briskly and garnish with a rosemary sprig.
And there you have it, a delicious Rosemary Lemonade cocktail perfect for a hot summer day!
That’s everything in my July Lilee box! These monthly boxes would make the perfect gift for your friends! (Or yourself…come on, you deserve it! 😉 )
Each box is $49 a month, but as you can see, there’s over $120 worth of goodies inside.
