Summertime in a Bowl

Summertime in a bowl, ain't it?

Summer is officially open for the season and with that come a few of my favorite things in the great outdoors: laying in the sun by the pool or at the park,  playing loads of tennis, or turning up the grill for some great seasonal grub (this weekend saw a collection of burgers and grilled asparagus and potatoes).  That great grilling component is of course made more complete with the addition of a beverage or two!

I posted this White Peach Sangria recipe on my own Facebook page over the weekend and had some overwhelming positive responses from friends to serve this big bowl of summertime joy over the coming months. So while I may have missed the unofficial start to summer this weekend, there are plenty more quintessential outdoor celebrations still to come this summer – best yet, this recipe fits the bill for them all!

White Peach Sangria

Combine all the ingredients in a large punch bowl filled with PLENTY of ice.

Cheers!

The Fuzzy Navel Throwdown

The “Fuzzy Navel,” as we know it today was created by our dear friend Ray Foley, and rose to fame in the 1980’s. Its great popularity was due, in part, to its catchy lil’ name and the fact that it’s sweet, easy to make, and features the great pairing of peach and orange flavors. What followed soon after were a few variations to this very simple drink—including the Hairy Navel (add vodka) and the Fuzzy Pucker (sub grapefruit juice for orange).

            Now there’s a new navel on the market—“The Naked Navel,” featuring Hiram Walker’s White Peach Schnapps. With a slightly lighter taste, the use of Hiram Walker White Peach Schnapps gives the drink a more delicate, clean, crisp feel. Continuing with the “Navel” theme, they’ve also got recipes for a “Pierced Navel” (with 100 proof vodka) and a “Barbed Navel” (with Agave Tequila).  

            Let’s see how far we can take this…I’ve got an “Innie” (with Amaretto) and an “Outie” (with citrus-flavored Vodka and cranberry juice). Anyone care to 1-up me? See below for all the recipes mentioned:
