63rd & 12th
by Keely Laughlin
Poole's favorite summer time drink is a mimosa, but sometimes we like to spice it up. For this quick sip, I blended a cup of chopped watermelon, one basil leaf and a splash of water. Then I double strained. Poole loves pulp, but if you don't thoroughly strain these the excess watermelon solids will create large bubbles and coat the sides of the glass - not cute. Fill your glass 1/3 of the way with the juice and then finish with your favorite sparkling wine!
Avocado toast, cliche? Possibly. Delicious? Always! I like to add a soft-boiled egg for a protein boost. It's quick and super easy. I followed the instructions from the experts at Bon Appétit, here, with one adjustment - I removed my egg 30 seconds earlier than they recommended so it would be just slightly runnier.
I like to crush my avocado with lemon juice and olive oil. Then finish with sea salt and pepper.
Black coffee + a little fruit and we are ready to take on the day!
