By this time of year we are all day dreaming about summer vacation … walks on the beach, ocean swims, afternoon cocktails! Holiday House’s bags are all packed, and we’re ready to move into our summer digs in The Hamptons!

For the first time ever, Holiday House Hamptons presented by Hamptons Cottages & Gardens will take up summer residence in a beautiful boutique home developed by Villadom Corporation at 4 Fair Hills Lane  in Bridgehampton, NY.

house-imageWe’ve invited some of today’s most talented designers to showcase their ideas for chic beach living and entertaining. Our Journal that will go home with each visitor to the showhouse also contains delicious recipes that you will want to return to all season when you host family and friends for lively summer parties. Here’s a sneak peek with Design House of the Hamptons‘ refreshing cocktail that’s perfect for toasting the beautiful memories that will be made this summer!

El Nopalito (Prickly Pear Margarita)
2 oz. white tequila
5 oz. triple sec
5 oz. lime juice
5 oz. agave nectar
1 oz. prickly pear nectar
Jalapeno slices (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and serve over ice. For a spicy twist, garnish with jalapeno slices.

As we are vacationing and celebrating, we can’t forget that the most important aspect of Holiday House Hamptons is the cause it benefits. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation supports groundbreaking work in the fight against breast cancer, a disease that will affect 1 in 8 women in her lifetime.

We’ve asked friends and supporters all over The Hamptons to put up pink flags in order to help promote Holiday House Hamptons and to show their support for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. When you see these pink flags, remember to visit Holiday House Hamptons to celebrate the best in interior design and holiday entertaining while supporting the fight against breast cancer, and remember how important it is to find a cure for this disease that touches too many lives.
