Can you believe summer is just around the corner? I’m so excited because it’s my favorite season of the year with vacation, barbeques and time by the pool with friends and family. I also love the light and fresh cuisine that accompanies summer, especially paired with cool and refreshing cocktails! When it comes to preparing adult beverages, I’m not looking for something too complicated or fancy. I want quick and easy with ingredients that are readily found at my local grocery store or market -- I’ll save those lychee martinis for the mixologist during a girl’s night out!
Beer and wine are the go-to’s in my home for parties and get-togethers, and while we love both equally (my husband is the beer drinker and I prefer wine), it’s always fun to try something new. A new trend that’s been hot lately is wine cocktails. I personally love wine cocktails because they enhance the flavor of wine by adding fresh ingredients. The result is a refreshing beverage that tastes like summer in a glass!
One of my favorite new wine cocktail recipes comes from Frontera Wines, the #1 Southern American Wine brand sold in the United States. This recipe for Sauvignon Blanc Paloma Blanca screams summer entertaining! I love it so much that I’m serving it for our Memorial Day party (and then at every other get-together after that!).
