I have to say, I always feel bad for expectant and nursing mother when they're out at evening events. I'm definitely not saying those events can't be fun unless you're drinking, but it makes me crazy when the only beverage choices are alcoholic, caffeinated, or water. It's like nobody considered the moms or even people who don't drink. How rude!
At my cocktail party, everyone gets remembered. After all, light and pretty drinks like this one are delicious any time, especially in the hot summer months. This particular recipe could be adapted in an infinite number of ways. I'm already dreaming up a version with peach nectar and frozen raspberries.
