It is Hot Hot Hot this weekend in the west and a perfect time to get a few people together for some relaxation and recovering from a long week. With Labor Day weekend here, it is a great excuse to fire up the BBQ and enjoy a cookout. We are keeping it simple and fun with some great food and a few easy cocktail recipes, just like these.
Using wine as a base for a refreshing cocktail, here are two simple recipes that you can whip up for a crowd. Make a pitcher to go around and enjoy it with your burgers!
Thanks to our friends at Santa Margherita for these delicious recipes! Give them a try!
