Endless Summer Cocktail

Ocean breezes, lounging by the pool, bright sunshine, blue skies, puffy white clouds and long, lazy days of summer are coming to a close. “Nobody on the road; Nobody on the beach; I feel it in the air; The summer’s out of reach.” But summer will never be out of reach with this Endless Summer Cocktail recipe on hand to help you call up summer, anytime. 

Whether you’re a harried parent who is celebrating the end of summer and restless children finally headed back to school, or someone who’s desperately clinging to the last vestiges of the carefree summer life, this cocktail is for you. And let’s face it, even if, for whatever reason, we’re yearning for cooler weather, or a change of foods, or shorter days and cozy times lounging by the fireplace instead of the pool, everyone gets to the point that they need an infusion of summer.

I had something else entirely planned for today’s Five Ingredient Friday post, but yesterday I stepped out on our upstairs porch before sunrise. The air held that crisp, cool feeling that is the portent of Fall.  Later, I was contemplating the front porch winterization…packing away the porch swing cushions and pillows, removing the flowerpots and citronella burners…and I was a little bit sad. You see, I’m not quite ready to see my pretty pink Impatiens be replaced with mums. I’m not quite ready for my Wee Kitchen Garden to be dormant. I’m not quite ready for summer to end. I’m not quite ready.

So rather than wallow in an end-of-summer funk, I decided to come up with a cocktail that would celebrate the flavours of summer in such a way that it would call it back to me.  A cocktail that was sunny, vibrant, fruity, citrus-y; a cocktail that would put the summer sunshine back into my mind…an Endless Summer Cocktail…that’s just what I needed!

Because it just happened to be five ingredients…well, that made it the perfect thing for today’s post! The five ingredients are:

        • Peach Schnapps
        • Pineapple juice
        • Orange juice
        • Lime juice
        • Orange liqueur (like Cointreau or Triple Sec)

So, celebrate summer…an Endless Summer…anytime with this delightfully refreshing cocktail. But remember…please drink responsibly!
