One of my favorite people to follow on Instagram is Sarah Adler from Simply Real Health. Her realness and smile always makes me happy, plus she’s got the cutest baby boy & some pretty awesome motherhood tips too!

Anyway, Sarah came out with a cookbook called Simply Real Eating and I’m finally getting around to sharing a recipe post-baby. Sarah’s book is full of healthy, inviting plant forward recipes that also happen to be gluten and dairy free. One of my favorite chapters of the book though? Her epic cocktails!

I thought it would be perfect to celebrate with a summer cocktail that will transport your taste buds to the sunshine of Palm Springs. Both gorgeous and delicious.
