Burlap Thursday is taking a little vacay this week to make room for another installment of Thirsty Thursday! Don’t you worry it will be back next week in all it’s grandeur. I may even have some DIY burlap projects up my sleeve if you are lucky! But as the heat swelters on and backyard barbeques start to ramp up speed I figured a refreshing cocktail may be just what you need. This particular one comes from Martha Stewart and I love the versatility of it. It sounds delicious but it also is gorgeous. I dare say it has this classy look to it that might make it a likely contender at your wedding as a signature cocktail. However it would look just as lovely dressed down during a leisurely backyard gathering.
- 1 thinly sliced peach
- 1 cup raspberries
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1/3 cup Simple Syrup
- 1 bottle champagne or other sparkling white wine
- In a pitcher, combine ice, peach, raspberries, blueberries, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Slowly pour in champagne or other sparkling white wine.
*If you aren’t a champagne/wine fan you could probably substitute that for a light beer. Of course it would alter the flavor but if you are a beer fan you’d surely enjoy it more! If it’s gross don’t tell Martha that I suggested it.
