Last week, The Garland, a stylish hotel in North Hollywood, celebrated September’s National Yoga Month with a Sound Off Deep Flow Yoga Class. Held in their lovely outdoor venue Beverly Park, this was described as “taking classic outdoor yoga to another level.” The class combined traditional vinyasa yoga movements with an instructor and a live DJ spinning music that could only be heard through glowing, wireless, noise-isolating, three-channel headphones.

— 1 lemon wedge
— 1.25 oz. Yazi ginger-flavored vodka
— 1 oz. ginger-infused simple syrup
— 3 oz. soda water
— 4 sprigs of candied ginger (optional)

With its use of fresh fruits and vegetables and crisp taste, the Sweet Pea is the perfect spring drink for you to sip while sitting on Buddha’s patio and forgetting the bitter cold of winter.
