Cherry-Lime Rickey Ice Pops
Serves 10
Prep time: 10 minutes
5 tbsp fresh lime juice
4 oz Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka
10 oz lemon-lime soda
40 cherry gummy candies
1. Combine lime juice, vodka, and lemon-lime soda in a pitcher or large measuring cup.
2. Place 4 gummy candies into each ice-pop mold.
3. Pour juice and vodka mixture into molds, leaving 1/4 inch of space in each.
4. Place cover on ice-pop molds, and gently insert sticks between gummy candies. Lightly tap molds on the counter to remove any large air bubbles.
5. Transfer molds to freezer and freeze until solid, at least 6 hours or overnight.
6. Remove molds from freezer, and gently remove pops from molds. If pops are stuck, briefly run molds under tepid water.

"I've never really fit in anywhere my whole life, except now... I just couldn't relate to many people back in Korea. I moved back to Korea from Canada for 4 years after high school, and I couldn't adjust to my own culture.
In elementary school I was definitely bullied because I didn't hang out with just Koreans – I was always the one to be friends with whoever I click with, and for some reason I couldn't really relate and ended up feeling excluded because I wanted to hang out with other friends too. I supposedly was 'not Korean enough' for them.
I decided to come to United States because I remember visiting NYC when I was very young and telling myself I'm going to move here one day. Here in the United States, everyone tends to accept one another easily and no one readily judges you. You don't really have to hold yourself back and that's how I want to live my life – you can find your niche here and I have found mine in the Lower East Side." — @milkizm
@milkizm is a New York City based artist and creator. Her work is inspired by her upbringing in Korea and the struggle to fit into her Asian culture.
For #APAHM, we partnered up with @yungwolftown to highlight Asian Americans through the #norientalseries, who are using their voices to progress the #AAPI narratives. "Oriental is often used as a misguided compliment usually to reduce our culture into a word because it is rarely fully understood. As Asian women, experiencing all the false stereotypes regarding us is absolutely tiring. Like that we are submissive, quiet and obedient.
There is also a mass fetishization of Asian women in society. All that can be traced back to colonization in Asia. There is a lack in physical representation in media when it comes to Asian Americans. Through these images, it is our way of showing the different variations of Asian femininity that is unapologetic & authentic." — @yungwolftown

Decorate the bottom of your legs the same way you would the lapel of your coat because they're equally important (and it's warm enough to just ditch all outerwear).

#AmalClooney's accomplishments extend far beyond just being George Clooney's wife (twins any day now though 👼👼). She's an international law and human rights lawyer and proof that standing up for injustices is attainable for all. As a frequent speaker at the United Nations, she has used her platform to fight against international crimes on numerous accounts.

We want to see your body part that you love most. The one society might tell you to cover up, but we want to see you wearing it proud – scars, stretch marks, veins, and everything that makes you who you are.
Share your photo and story on Insta, tag @refinery29 and use the hashtag #TakeBackTheBeach — you could even see yourself in an R29 story sometime soon!

Comment below with what usually works best for you, or someone you love when they're going through a tough time.
There's no guidebook that tells us the right way to be supportive, but it's abundantly clear that opening up — and keeping open — dialogue around these sometimes-stigmatized topics is a must. #HereForYou #MHAM

@watanabenaomi703 aka "the Japanese Beyoncé" is an actress, comedian, and fashion designer for @PUNYUS. She's a cast member on Japanese SNL, a judge on X-Factor Japan, and the most-followed person on Instagram in the country (5.2 million!). The 28-year-old is also celebrated for her curvaceous figure and for being a champion for plus-size women. Her designs reflect Japan’s “pocharri” trend, which encourages women to embrace the term “marshmallow girls,” reshaping the notion that girls who are bigger aren’t cute. The goal is to help women embrace fashion and style, without having to change their bodies. #NaomiWatanabe makes it her mission to prove that one size does not fit all and women of all shapes and sizes is a mission we all can get behind.
In celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month this May, we're featuring some of our favorite Asian American and Pacific Islander American thinkers. They'll tell their stories about the rewards, challenges, and realities of straddling two identities — especially when the compatibility of the two has recently come under attack.
