Lemon Water

3 Fruit-Infused Waters to Drink This Summer

Lemon WaterAny time that you leave your Denver apartments this summer, whether it’s to head to work or for play time, staying well hydrated is vital. The best way to do this is to take along a bottle of fresh water — but many people balk at drinking their full daily requirement of water. Does water seem too boring? Well, there’s a solution for that, and you’re going to love it. Here are three fruit-infused waters to drink this summer.

Strawberry Mint Water

One of the easiest and most delicious options for fruit infused water involves fresh strawberries. If you keep fresh mint on hand in your Denver apartment, you can create an unusual and wonderful taste sensation. Simply fill a water bottle to the almost full mark, and then add slices of fresh strawberries. Drop in a couple of individual mint leaves along with some ice cubes. Allow it all to fully infuse for a while (a couple of hours minimum) and enjoy.

Blueberry Orange Combo = Sweet and Citrus Together

Blueberry and orange might sound like an odd combo, but the sweet blueberry and the citrus tang of the orange blend together amazingly well. Drop two or three slices of orange (rind on is fine) along with a small handful of blueberries and ice into a nearly full water bottle. Allow it to sit for at least a couple of hours to get the full benefit of this fruity and fresh water blend.

Mojito Water That is Alcohol Free

Love mojitos? You’ll also love mojito water. Simply add a couple of mint leaves and a few slices of lime to iced water to get a flavor sensation. To really ramp up the flavor, squeeze the lime a bit as you drop it into the water. This gives you all the taste with none of the alcohol regret the next day. Plus, it’s amazingly hydrating.

The Apartments at Denver Place offer stunning high rise apartment homes in the heart of Denver, Colorado. If you’re in the market for a beautiful new apartment home in a vibrant city this summer, call to learn more about our current availability.

Multiple Indoor Plants

5 Indoor Plants That are Trending Right Now

Multiple Indoor PlantsHouseplants brighten a room and certain ones can even clean the air in your apartment. When choosing houseplants for apartments in Denver, it often comes down to personal preference. These preferences are largely based on how much care a given plant requires, especially if you lead a busy lifestyle. However, if you’re looking for a popular plant as either your first endeavor into greenery or to add to your collection, here are five indoor plants you might want to check out.

Succulents

Succulents have enjoyed popularity for some time, but they don’t always fare well without plenty of bright, direct sunlight. However, the miniature succulent Zebra Haworthia doesn’t require quite as much light and it’s cute white stripes are a wonderful addition to any plant collection.

Snake plants are also a type of succulent. They’re extremely tolerant and only need watering once a month. It’s an air purifying plant that prefers full, bright light. Popular in the ‘70s, they’re enjoying a resurgence in popularity, especially for adding structure to both modern or contemporary interiors and retro or eclectic abodes.

Ferns & Ivy

Ferns and ivy have long been a popular greenery choice for apartment residents. Boston ferns remain a top pick for a hardy plant that’s an excellent air purifier. They can grow as large as three-to-four feet and look great anywhere.

English ivy is a fantastic choice for suspended planters that allow it to cascade down. A leafier ivy, golden pothos also remains popular. It handles infrequent watering and neglect while being one of the best air purifiers you can add to your home.

Take Extra Care

A word of warning, not all plants are healthy for your four-legged friends. This, unfortunately, includes some currently trending flora. This doesn’t mean you can’t have them, just take extra care to ensure your dog and/or cat can’t reach snake plants or most types of ivy.

A splash of healthy greenery instantly makes any room feel fresher. Complement the breathtaking city and mountain views at The Apartments at Denver Place with the wonderful aesthetics of indoor plants for a welcome home you won’t want to miss. Located in downtown Denver, Colorado our floor plans are among the most spacious in the city. Call us at (866) 995-0446 to schedule a tour today.

Table Setting

Tips for Hosting a Hassle-Free Dinner Party

Table SettingIf you owe some entertainment debts but experience major anxiety at the thought of throwing a dinner party, rest assured that techniques exist that minimize hosting stress. Following are five strategies designed to ensure smooth sailing for fledgling dinner party hosts living in apartments in Denver.

Consider the Guest List

Organize a comfortable and fun atmosphere to ensure that everyone enjoys themselves and has a good time. Craft a guest list among those who have several things in common, particularly if you’re including those who’ve never met before. It’s also wise to discover any dietary preferences in advance to avoid serving a juicy roast to those who do not eat meat.

Don’t Experiment in the Kitchen

Dinner party night is no time to try out a new recipe. If it goes south, you may find yourself ordering in pizza. Stick with a reliable recipe you prepare well—and choose one that doesn’t require babysitting as it cooks. A good host spends more time with the guests than in the kitchen. It may also help to have a backup plan just in case the entrée doesn’t turn out.

Don’t Be Afraid to Delegate

Take people at their word when they offer assistance with the meal. More hands will lighten your load. Keep in mind that people sometimes offer to help because they feel awkward or don’t know what to do. Having them help you will make them feel comfortable in an unfamiliar social territory, and your first duty as a host is to ease and comfort your guests.

Do as Much as Possible the Day Before

Setting the table the night before your party saves you from frantic, last-minute scrambling. Look around and figure out what else you can prepare in advance.

Relax and Enjoy Your Party

Hosts who are visibly nervous and tense may cause guests to catch their mood, and if that happens, everyone’s looking forward to the end of the evening. Relax and have fun, and the rest will come naturally.

Our one- and two-bedroom floor plans are perfect for hosting dinner parties! Looking to learn more about our apartments and our community? Contact us today!

Strawberry Margarita

6 Refreshing Spring Cocktail Recipes

Strawberry MargaritaFresh air and sunshine make spring an ideal time for cocktails with friends. Residents of apartments in Denver who aren’t sure what to serve can use the following cocktail suggestions for inspiration.

Strawberry Margaritas 

Simply add strawberries to your favorite margarita recipe and you’ve got a great, signature cocktail for a spring bash. To sweeten the deal, use sugar to rim the glass instead of salt, and add a bit of whipped cream as a final touch.

Peach Champagne Cocktails

Mix equal parts of Champagne or any other sparkling wine, club soda, and peach brandy. For extra peachy goodness, float freshly sliced peaches in every drink. These are excellent when strained with ice through a cocktail shaker and served in tall, fluted glasses.

Green Tea Mojitos 

All you have to do to make these is add white rum to iced green tea and stir in some sugar if you like things on the sweet side. Serve this in tall highball glasses for a classic cocktail experience. Garnish with fresh mint.

Rosemary Gin and Tonics

For another easy twist on an old classic, simply garnish a traditional gin and tonic with a sprig of crushed rosemary. Crushing it helps release the rosemary’s essential oils, which add a delightfully complex layer of herbal notes to the gin’s juniper tang.

Mint Juleps

Making mint juleps is easy. All you need is bourbon, water, shaved ice, and fresh mint. As with the rosemary in the above cocktail, crushing the mint helps set the herb’s inner oils free. These make a natural signature cocktail if you’re throwing a Kentucky Derby party in your apartment, but even if you’re not, it’s a great drink to enjoy outdoors on a warm spring day.

Hurricanes

As the quintessential Mardi Gras cocktail, Hurricanes are a classic harbinger of spring. If you’ve got dark rum, passionflower syrup, and a fresh lemon, you can make a great Hurricane cocktail. Just mix two ounces of rum with an ounce each of freshly squeezed lemon juice and passionflower syrup and enjoy it on the rocks.
