This week is fashion week in Winter Park. That means many people (particularly those fashionistas of the community) will be encouraged to stride out and about and flaunt those outfits saved for special occasions. For the moms who are taking advantage of some much needed time celebrating and putting their hectic lives on pause, this week is critical. When you are perusing around Park Avenue and Downtown Orlando it is hard to watch your waistline when elite restaurants with gastro-chic menus and cocktails are at your every turn. I came across a small but delicious list of cocktails that are friendly to your figure and your lipstick stained lips.

My personal favorite is the elderflower cocktail:
- 8 tablespoons elderflower, concentrate or syrup
- 2 cups champagne – extra-dry, or Brut
- 2 cups seltzer
- 8 sprig(s) mint, fresh – or edible flowers, for garnish
