4 Refreshing Late Summer Cocktails

 

Mother Nature holds her best bounty for late summer.  Whether you prefer the stone fruit’s juice dripping down your chin or blended into a thirst-quenching cocktail, the ripe peach is the belle of the ball.

These dazzling Santa Margherita cocktails were served at the brand’s She Shed Event last week, where guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and experienced a variety of cooking demos from Top Chef winner, Richard Blais. The ‘Peach Royale’ is Basil & Salt’s late summer favorite.
