With the last vestiges of summer, slipping through our fingers, I am obliged to sip as many cocktails on the porch as I can.
I invited over a couple of friends to assist me in this endeavor.
Not a cocktail party, but a quick quaff, an hour or so, lingering together in a collective sigh of relaxation.
I ruffled through my coffers for ingredients. Not wanting to mix anything too lethal or having to repeatedly shake cocktails, I settled on the Aperitif pitcher idea. Something that I could prepare quickly, delicious and light, to set us up for our respective dinners that await.
As it turned out, the floral ingredients were harvested from various gardens, a nod to not letting go of the last few days of summer!
Here's to the Endless Summer!
