Mangia Mondays:: Strawberry Peach Summer Cocktail

Good Monday morning and welcome to Mangia Mondays!

Did you hear that my co-host, Kristin of Delightfully Dowling, and her husband Andrew became a family of three last week?  Sweet baby Charlotte Olivia delighted them with her arrival and she couldn't be cuter.  Congrats Dowlings!!  If you're interested in guest posting with a foodie post on Delightfully Dowling, hop on over to check out the deets on Kristin's blog.

{And while we're on the subject of new babes, Schue Love's Natasha and her hubby welcomed baby Ethan Grant to the world last week too - I'm getting my baby fix all over blogland these days!  Congrats Schue Family!}

Let's toast all this wonderful news with a celebratory libation, shall we?

With the Fourth of July on Wednesday, and a summer ahead of relaxing on the beach/deck/rooftop/patio/poolside, I offer to you this simple and fresh cocktail to enjoy.

Ingredients (per drink)
2 medium sized strawberries
2 oz. peach nectar
4 oz. vodka
ice


Remove stem from strawberries.  In a blender, combine strawberries and peach nectar until strawberries are smooth.  
Fill a 10 oz. glass with ice and add vodka and strawberry-peach mixture; stir to combine.
{I like mine with bits of strawberry in there, but you could strain out the solids as well.}
  
Enjoy!

It's the perfect summer drink to enjoy with a cute guy while dinner is on the grille!
