With everything blooming, the sun setting later in the day and temperatures creeping up, we will be spending more time outdoors and in our gardens, hopefully with family and friends.
Here is a great recipe for a summer cocktail that’s sure to please:
2 tsp finely shredded lime peel
1 cp lime juice
1/4 cp sugar
1 750 ml bottle pinot noir or syrah, cold
1 nectarine, pitted and sliced
In a 1 quart glass measuring cup, combine lime peel, lime juice, & sugar. Add water to equal 4 cups. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
To serve, place ice in glasses (6), add 2/3 cup of the lime juice mixture to each glass. Pouring along side of glass, slowly add 1/2 cup wine. Thread nectarines on a skewer and add to glasses.
Voila…summer in a glass!
