Weekend Cocktails

This is the last post of the summer long weekend cocktails.  I hope you have tried some and found some new drinks to add into your collection. 

I thought this drink from Martha Stewart would be fun to have while we enjoy the last of the summer fruit.

Peach and Blackberry Muddle - from Martha Stewart

  • 4 thin slices peach
  • Via
  • 6 blackberries
  • 2 large sprigs mint
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • Ice
  • Seltzer
  1. In a double old-fashioned glass, combine 2 peach slices, 3 blackberries, mint, honey, and lemon juice.
  2. Mash gently with the back of a spoon until fruit releases juices. A
  3. dd bourbon, remaining peach slices, and remaining blackberries.
  4. Fill glass with ice and top with seltzer.

Parmesan-Scallion Pastry Pinwheels - from Real Simple

  1. Heat oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Unfold the pastry and brush with the egg. Sprinkle with the scallions, ¼ cup of the Parmesan, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ⅛ teaspoon pepper. Roll tightly into a log. Freeze until firm but still sliceable, about 20 minutes.
  3. Slice the log into ¼-inch-thick rounds and place on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of Parmesan and bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
