When life hands you lemons …
The first time I saw this print, I was watching the ever-lovely Emily Henderson makeover the living room of the equally-lovely Joy Cho on Secrets from a Stylist. Watch the episode here!
Joy had a wall full of pictures and prints that she wanted to continue to display in an engaging way and Emily was on the case. This charming print was just one of over a dozen on the wall, but its sunny yellow disposition caught my eye.
After a little online digging, I discovered the print was from the Etsy shop of New Zealand-based designer dearcolleen and I’ve since sent the tea towel version to one sister-in-law in New Zealand and another sister-in-law in England. Gin and tonic is the cocktail of choice in most UK households and we love that tradition. It just seemed like a fitting tribute to our favorite elixir.
As a side note, if you’ve never watched Secrets from a Stylist, you don’t know what you’re missing! Full episodes are available online so you can have your own mini marathon any time you like. With or without gin and tonic.

I always wondered how you had found it!
“Gin and tonic is the cocktail of choice in most UK households”
Most? Um, no…
Really? It’s such “the” drink among our friends and family in the UK. What’s your cocktail of choice?
I’m not much of a drinker anyway, but I think you’ll find that it depends where in the the UK a person lives. (And I’m now in Wales.) Surrey’s probably more G&T territory (though I’d probably get smacked on the head for that by some of ’em!)
