Lavender Earl Gray Blackberry Ice Cream Floats {Vegan}
AUTHOR: Sarah Menanix
YIELDS: 6 large floats
INGREDIENTS
Lavender Simple Syrup
  • ¾ cups sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon culinary dried lavender*
Bitter Earl Gray Tea
  • 1½ cups boiling water
  • 5 earl gray tea bags (or 2½ tablespoons loose earl gray tea)
  • 2 cups blackberries
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 3 cups sparkling water
  • 1½ pints vegan vanilla bean ice cream (or your favorite vanilla ice cream)
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Prepare the simple syrup. Head the sugar, water, and dried lavender in a small saucepan over medium heat, just until the sugar melts, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and cover to let steep for 10 minutes. Strain the syrup and let cool.
  2. Brew the tea. Pour the boiling water over the tea bags and let steep for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags, pressing excess liquid from the bags, and let cool.
  3. Purée the lavender simple syrup, earl gray tea, blackberries, and lemon juice in a blender until smooth. Strain the puree to remove any seeds. You should have about 3-3½ cups of puree.
  4. In a large pitcher just before serving, slowly and carefully add the sparkling water to the blackberry puree (it should foam up a lot!).
  5. Place 2-3 scoops of ice cream in each of six large glasses and pour blackberry soda over the top. Add a splash more sparkling water to add a little foam to the top and serve immediately.

CLOUD PAINT

glossier-puff-on-fair-skin_1024x1024

Cloud Paint from Glossier is a natural-looking blush in four shades.

The pillowy, gel-cream formula is designed to be the most user-friendly cheek color in existence. If you can finger paint, you can Cloud Paint—simply dab it onto cheeks wherever you please. It’s seamless, sheer, and buildable (i.e. it’s hard to accidentally apply too much). Inspired by gradient pink NYC sunsets, the shades are optimized to work across a wide range of skin tones for a healthy, flushed-from-within glow.
