Before we forget, we wanted to post “our song” of the summer. It’s a good one. “The Ones Who Love You” by Alvvays.
We’re back at it! Making friend cocktails like crazy. This special drink is for Laura’s parents, the Blumers. It’s called The Late Blumer. (good one… i know!)
All you need is gin, gingerale, apricots, raspberries and basil. It’s so fresh, fruity and amazing. You should totally make this one at home!
Just muddle the fruit and basil leaves, add ice then add gingerale and gin. Ta-da! Enjoy.
Basil cocktails have my heart this season. They’re my favorite, by a lot!
We love you, Ron & Sheila!!! Thanks for an amazing night and for joining in our cocktail tradition. ♥
As soon as Jeremy and I moved into our new home, last autumn, we started a new tradition of inventing a special cocktail for each of our guests. It’s been a lot of fun! This cocktail is called The Gummy-man and it’s named after Todd and Laura Gummerman. It’s probably our favorite one yet because Todd is really (really) into gummy candy. Ever since the first time we made it, he’s been requesting it. I’m pretty sure we found his cocktail soul mate.
We wanted this drink to taste like a gummy bear. It’s basically a suicide of fruity schnapps. We’ve used watermelon, peach, raspberry and apple. Most importantly, there is a cocktail stick with gummy candy.
Ridiculous? Most definitely. Delicious? Obviously.
Nothing but the best for this set of besties! Cheers.
