Georgia Peach Tea Cocktail

So even though fall is here, I still find myself craving the flavors of a peachy cocktail!  With our recent fall meal of Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with toasted Garlic Bread, I also served this delicious and refreshing beverage! The tea really is a good balance to the sweetness of the schnapps and the sparkler so it is not an overly sweet cocktail.  I hope you enjoy!

Also, I am going to be doing a series of Caramel Apple Treats in October! Tonight I am making some Caramel Apple Ice Cream and will let you know if it turns out or not! Meanwhile…enjoy this cocktail and have a fabulous weekend!


serves 2

  • 3 oz Vodka
  • 3 oz Peach Schnapps
  • 4 oz Fresh Brewed Ice Tea
  • 4 oz Peach Cider or any peach sparkling beverage that you can find
  • 8-10 big Ice Cubes

Vanilla Peach Bellini

It is PEACH season and the perfect time for this peachy cocktail!  Yesterday was my 3 year wedding anniversary with my darling husband and Peaches are one of his most favorite things!  To celebrate the event, I blended up a batch of Vanilla Peach Bellini’s before we went out for a romantic dinner!  It was sort of our own little peachy cocktail hour after work!  Now this is not the original recipe for a Peach Bellini, but my own little recipe and interpretation of the drink.
Next week I will be making these again, but with some Fresh peaches from my Mom’s tree which I am sure will make them even more delicioso!  If you like fruity blended cocktails, you gotta give this one a try!  It would be really pretty and yummy to finish it off with a float of raspberry liquor, or a few fresh raspberries, but  I did not have any yesterday so just garnished with a few grapes which worked well too!  I hope you like this as much as we did!  Here’s to love, gorgeous late summer nights, and PEACHES!!!

Lillian’s Citrus Slush

It is the time of year where all I want to eat is salads, fruit and all things cool and cold, because turning on an oven just doesn’t seem like a good idea in the heat!  Last year on the hottest day in the history of Seattle…two stick candles in our third floor apartment literally were melting from the heat.  One melted all the way over into the shape below…haha.  We have it in our house still to memorialize the day that it was 96 degrees in our house at 9:30 at night!

After that day, I decided to always have something cold and refreshing on hand for days when there is no air conditioning, no cool breeze, no pool to jump in, no relief from the heat except a cold delicious drink!
