Meet Brooke Atwood, designer and stylist based out of Savannah, GA. Brooke has a Master of Arts in fashion design from SCAD. After several years in the retail business and a growing desire to become a designer, she decided to sell her store and relocate herself and her daughter to Savannah, GA where she recently finished her final thesis collection at SCAD. Atwood’s designs have a sense of femininity with a rocker-chic vibe. She currently divides her time as a freelance fashion stylist, designer and the joys of being a “not your average” soccer mom. When not busy with a fashion project, find Brooke seeing as much live music as possible and striving to be student of the month at Bikram Yoga, Savannah. Take it away Brooke…
I can navigate confidently around a closet, boutique, vintage shop, department store… a kitchen, not so much. When I was asked to share my favorite cocktail (I assumed one that I actually make at home), I immediately turned to my favorite lil spot in NYC, Smith & Mills. My current stay in the city this summer, which has already hit high heat waves, I can be found here on occasion sipping one of their signature all fresh ingredients cocktails. The cucumbers in their Pimm’s Cup makes me feel like I’m actually doing something good for my body, AND it’s so refreshing mixed with the mint! – Brooke
Cut cucumbers thinly and use fresh mint. Mix and shake fresh lime juice, mint, Pimm’s Liqueur and Cointreau. Pour over ice and cucumbers, and top with ginger soda. Garnish with more fresh mint!
Measurements don’t have to be exact, adjust to taste.
