Summer Cocktail

I hope you are doing something fun this holiday weekend. If you are staying home and cooking, here is a delicious and refreshing cocktail to kick off your festivities. It's called Summer Redhead and was created by the talented Danielle Steckler at Paper Palate Catering. Enjoy your weekend!


2 pounds of strawberries
2/3 cup of sugar
1 cup of vodka
1/4 cup of lime juice
1/3 cup of Riesling

Toss the chopped strawberries in the sugar and let stand for 10 minutes until they exude juice. In a blender combine the strawberries and their juice with the vodka, lime juice, Riesling and ice. Pour into glasses and serve.

See you back here in September!
