Heat Wave Cool Down

















With the impending heat wave we are having here in NC, I thought I would share with you one of my favorite summer treats. A Peach Bellini. This drink is bubbly, its girly, its refreshing and its ooooh so good. On a day like today its great poolside, oceanside or inside (with some friends of course!). A perfect compliment and treat for a scorcher like today!
What you'll need
  • One bottle of cheap champagne
  • One can of peach nectar (you can find this in the mexican isle of your grocery)
  • One 12oz. bottle of Peach Schnapps
Thats it. Now, mix the trio together and put into a pitcher or bowl, whatever will fit in your freezer. Let it sit in there for at least 5 hours. I like to put mine in the night before. The mixture will not freeze because of the alcohol in it, but it will turn into our beloved slushy.

When you're ready, scoop or pour the mixture into decorative glasses or heck, Solo cups will do too! I like to have some munchies to go along with this drink. Its so good you can drink too much too fast and it can make you feel a little tipsy (just ask my sister!). Something I love is a block of cream cheese topped with a jar of red pepper jelly served with some yummy crackers! So delicioso!

Ladies, Summer is still calling! Get out there!
