KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend and welcome to another Friday Finds here at KCL! I don't know about you guys, but we have actually been able to use our heater this week. I'm so excited that sweater weather is finally here! It's time to cozy up with some hot cocoa and watch my favorite scary movies. My husband and I love Halloween, and we love to relax at home with a good movie or show. Several new scary shows are streaming as of today, so we will definitely be staying in and watching Netflix. Whether you're staying in or going out, enjoy your weekend, and enjoy these incredible seasonal picks. Happy shopping!


At AfterHours Decals & More they carry gifts and home goods like candles and personalized wedding gifts, but with Halloween coming up, I really wanted to share their seasonal Autumn-themed decor with you. Among my favorites are their Halloween door decals (pictured above) and their set of witch pun Halloween stemless wine glasses.


I prefer the ready-made set, but if you're…

Berry-Limeade Gimlet


Somehow I'd made it my entire adult life so far without having tasted gin. Every time my husband and I would browse the liquer at our favorite wine shops, we'd see gin and think what does that taste like anyway? I'd always had vodka martinis. Though for something easy to make at home, we weren't in the mood to gather ingredients for a gin martini.




With a quick google of "gin cocktails," you'll find various recipes for a gimlet cocktail. It's so easy, all you really need for a gimlet is lime juice and soda. And now days, you can find gimlet recipes mixed with all sorts of juices. But the original classic gimlet from the 1920s is made from gin with a splash of lime and soda.

My version is more lime juice with a splash of gin, because, well, I really can't handle much alcohol. And I'm much more interested in the flavor than getting a quick buzz. I used Simply Limeade and Rasberry La Croix sparkling water.

Simply fill an old-fashioned glass 2/3 full with the limeade, then the rest with sparkling water, and add a splash or two of the gin, and garnish with a lime wedge. It's such a refreshing way to have a gimlet for summer. And for lightweights like me, you can have a few glasses without it affecting you too much. Of course if that effect is what you're after, you can simply add a few more shots of gin. The flavor blends in very well with the lime and soda, especially if you use a sweet lime juice like the Simply Limeade.

If you prefer lighter-tasting cocktails as opposed to ones made with a whiskey or a darker liqueur, I promise you'll love this berry limeade gimlet. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

  1. I tried it once. Didn't like it, but then I don't like the taste of alcohol in general.
