Visiting Laicie Heeley’s blog, A Thousand Threads, feels a lot like stopping by a friend’s beautifully decorated home. The working mom, wife, and design-obsessed lifestyle guru is an expert at finding the little things that make life a little bit better—from delicious recipes to affordably chic home decor and beyond. Today she’s telling us all about her favorite beverage to usher in autumn.
It’s official, fall is here. But if you’re feeling anything like me, you’re still busy soaking up the last bits of summer’s warmth. I’m excited for the falling leaves (and for the return of my leather jacket and scarves), but there are still at least a few days left before I start to crave a seat by the fire and a toasty drink in my hand.
Enter the Stone Wall.
Monday Mood PowerUp: Classic Drink Recipes for Summer
Even with summer winding down, we’re not ready to let go of the warm weather just yet. Hot cocoa, chai tea, and cozy sweaters may be knocking on our doors soon, but we’re making the most of the time we have left with these tasty summer cocktails.

Cinco de Mayo is one of my favorite holidays of the year—mostly because there are margaritas involved. I love margs for any occasion, but they taste extra delicious when you know that summer’s quickly approaching after a long, cold spring.
Today we’ve got four, yes four, recipes for Margaritas that will satisfy even the pickiest palates: The Mercadito with Jalapenos and Cilantro, A Smoky Ginger Mezcal Margarita, a Habanero Grapefruit Marg, and a recipe for A Perfect Margarita—none of which are dispensed from an icee machine. Cheers!
6 Seasonal Cocktails That Are Perfect For a Warm Day
The weather is starting to really warm up, and I’m eager to lay out on my roof and enjoy a drink or two with friends. And while I love a nice glass of Pinot Noir or a simple whisky ginger, sometimes I want something a little fresher to get into the spirit of spring. So I’m scoping out my local produce stands, picking up a few of my favorite seasonal ingredients, and getting inspired with these six fruity cocktails.
Strawberry Mint Julep from The Forest Feast
A twist on the classic derby drink, this cocktail is made just a little sweeter with the addition of some fresh strawberry simple syrup.
Lillet Rose Spring Cocktail from Martha Stewart
I love the pastel peach color of this cocktail. If you don’t know where to find edible blossoms, talk to the producers at your local farmer’s market to find pesticide-free flowers that are safe for consumption.
Spring Sangria from Eat Drink Love
This is definitely a recipe to share with a few friends. Toss together some white wine, Sprite, pineapple juice, and several citrus slices, and you’ve got the makings of a perfect spring sangria.
Blood Orange 75 from Scout.
Definitely plan ahead for this dark citrus cocktail. The blood orange takes 30 minutes to properly steep, so consider preparing the simple syrup early and storing it in the fridge until you’re ready to break out the gin.
Pimm’s Cup from me!
There are a lot of Pimm’s Cup recipes out there, but I’m partial to an easy and extrafruity mix that I think many of you will also love. This English staple takes me from the first sign of spring all the way through September.
Rhubarb Mojito from Not Without Salt
I’ve been eagerly awaiting rhubarb season just to try this drink myself. Mint, rhubarb, fresh lime juice, and rum? Yes please.
