Summer Style Soiree {Jacqueline Kennedy}

The Summer Style Soiree is back – this month celebrating all things Jacqueline Kennedy!!  Jackie is revered for her legacy of fashion, lifestyle, poise, grace and manners.  Join me for an inspired “Moment with Jackie…”

As First Lady, Jackie introduced the White House to cocktail hour, with her libation of choice being the lime daquiri.  The lime daquiri of Jackie’s generation was not the frozen drink machine concoction we know today.  Rather, a sophisticated and tasty libation that is worth bringing back!  While in Savannah, Mother and I set out to perfect a recipe worthy of Jackie herself.

Jackie’s Lime Daquiri Cocktail
Shake with ice and strain into glass.  Serves 1…
3 oz light rum
2 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
1 oz simple syrup


Atop a sterling golf club tray, we perched a photo of Jackie and Mother’s replica of Jackie’s legendary triple strand pearl necklace.  And that is how we interpreted a moment with Jackie.
