First Day of Summer: Coffee & Cocktails

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Happy first day of Summer!

Two things I love in life are a wonderful cup of coffee in the morning and then maybe little glass of vino to end the night or after a long work day. Moving to the Detroit area has given me the opportunity to discover some wonderful gems in terms of coffee & cocktails. From custom mixology creations to industrial inspired coffee joints, I have got you covered on the best places to check out.

Metro Detroit:
Cocktails: Valentines Distillery, Ferndale
Why I love it: Not only is the outdoor patio amazing, but so are their drinks. From fresh pressed juices mixed with their original vodka to signature cocktails, this place is truly one of my favorites. The environment gives of a very relaxed yet chic vibe.
What I am wearing: Ferne Boutiques floral romper. It's comfy, bright and perfect for summer!
My "go-to" order: The "Cucumber Chill". Mint, club soda, lime and a splash of their custom vodka. Light and refreshing to kick-off summer!

Coffee: Atomic Coffee, Royal Oak
Why I love it: It truly is "the" place to be in terms of coffee shops around the Royal Oak area. The trendy decor mixed with a wonderful variety of coffee and food options makes this place a perfect pit stop. Whether you want to work, relax or catch up with friends-Atomic Coffee is the spot!
What I am wearing: Can you tell I love rompers? This striped one from Ferne Boutique is my go-to when I want to be comfy and stylish. The relaxed fit makes this an easy outfit to throw together (especially for a little afternoon of work or coffee date).
My "go-to" order: Honey Vanilla Latte (over ice or hot). It's the best "treat" during a long work week and perfect for a hot summer day!

Downtown Detroit:
Cocktails: Sugar House, Corktown
Why I love it: Of course their cocktails are to die for, but the atmosphere is very industrial, dark and intriguing. I also love how their staff is so knowledgeable and charming! They can make you something so amazing just by asking you a few simple questions.. Never disappoints!
My "go-to" order: Anything they create! I love going in there and telling any one of their skilled bartenders what I prefer in terms of flavor. After a few mixes and pours, I am gifted with one tasty and beautiful cocktail. Always a fun surprise! If you are not as adventurous, you can always order one of their custom cocktails off their menu.

Coffee: Roasting Plant Detroit
Why I love it: Located right downtown Detroit, this place serves a great cup of a coffee all with wonderful views of the city. An easy pit stop that is unique and very delicious!
What I am wearing: Ferne Boutiques "Easy Tiger" tee and jean jacket paired with my favorite hat from Lulu Lemon. Opening Day I received so many compliments on this "Tigers" themed tank. It's cute and very appropriate for living in "The D."
My "go-to" order: For the summer I am a HUGE fan of anything cold brew related at the Roasting Plant. I have been trying to drink my coffee darker and darker but it's SUCH a struggle. Another drink I love is their vanilla latte over ice. Perfect sweet summer treat.
