Garden Party Perfect Summer Cocktails

Summer dreaming in late spring. It’s torture to have consistently warm temps so close and yet so far. This time of year they flirt mercilessly with us, flitting in out of the forecast, giving us just a tease and a taste of sun-filled days.

While all of the recipes below have a refreshing air to them, I have a weakness for  Prosecco and I find drinking a delicious Mimosa or two on a Sunday morning to be a delightful decadence. A bowl of fruit and several juices to suit all flavors is a brilliant way to entertain weekend guests. The recipe below utilizes fresh peaches and a bit of ginger for a blended cocktail.

Whether your celebration is indoors or out, this is a gorgeous way to kick off summer parties. Cheers!
