i need a drink...

It's been a long week!
Come on in and take a seat! 
What would you like? 

 Gin and Tonic, Margarita on the rocks,  Summer Breeze {my creation}, Wine, Sangria, shot of tequila... You name it lets make it! 

Getting just the right bar cart for your home... Is like making the perfect drink! Ok in my book at least! 
 
Whether your cart is inside or outside... Old or new... Colors, textures, height, supplies and fluff need to be just right. When you  go to make a drink for your guests or yourself... You don't want to walk around the house looking for ingredients. It all needs to be right in front of you.
  

A fresh bowl of lemons or limes always add fabulous color to your bar. Decanters are classic and extremely eye catching. A definite must on any bar cart. I love fresh flowers to add a pop of fun. If your outside and it's summer... Eucalyptus leaves or sunflowers... Its winter and you want more of a cozy romantic feel go for tigs or red roses, short and tightly bunched together.

 I'm sure my husband is laughing so hard right now... Because I'm not really a big drinker and I'm talking all about bars! 
ha ha... We all got to start somewhere! 

Here's a cocktail I think we should all try! 



THE SHUCKS DELUXE
Ingredients:
  • 4 large peaches, pits removed and cut in half
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. lime juice
  • 3 ounces vodka
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 cup sprite
  • 4 slices of peaches, garnish
  • 2 rosemary sprigs, garnish
Prep:
  1. Using a food processor, add in the 4 peaches (pits removed), sugar and lime juice. Pulse until pureed. Pour the contents into a fine sieve over a bowl to catch the nectar. Using the back of a spoon, push through all the nectar you can and toss the bits that don’t make it through.
  2. [To make Rosemary Simple Syrup] Combine 2 cups of water, 2 cups of sugar, 3 tbsp. corn syrup and 1/4 cup rosemary leaves in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and rest for 20 minutes. Strain into a glass and refrigerate until chilled.
  3. Using a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add in vodka, lime juice, honey, 2 tbsp. rosemary simple syrup, 4 tbsp. peach nectar and shake. Pour into two cocktail glasses filled with ice and top with Sprite and a splash of water. Garnish with two peach slices per drink and a rosemary sprig.
  4. Serves 2.
