Perfect Pitcher - White Sangria

When I go out for tapas I often order sangria. However I never think to serve it when I entertain. That was until I saw this delicious looking recipe on Jenny Hobick's blog HERE

Chilled white wine, triple sec and fresh fruit = delish!


Bubblegum Tini

Leave it to our talented friend and celebrity caterer PETER CALLAHAN to create such a whimsical summer sip! Love it and the presentation with bubble gum in a plastic tray. Nobody is more creative than Peter. COCKTAIL RECIPE

Beach Bound...Again

I am beach bound again...this time for a week on Martha's Vineyard. Summer sun, cold wine, lobster, toes in the sand, the sound of the waves and great friends. Heaven. 

I am going to drink in these views with a book and a glass of wine. I'll be back on the 27th. Enjoy the last few weeks of the summer!

Because I Love It

Summer Hostess Gift

This time of year I, like many of you, am often a guest at someone's home in Nantucket, Fairfield County, Maine, etc. While I often bring assorted wines, or other gifts, it is also nice to bring something you made. For me this is a nice jar of pesto! Everyone loves it, it can stay in the fridge of freezer, and can make an instant summer meal with pasta.

For elegant packaging, I use WECK JARS. I love the clean lines and that your hostess can use it again once she (or he) has devoured the pesto! 

And a few recipes for different kinds of pesto

And what hostess wouldn't enjoy pesto to make summer dishes like this one?
