Summer Entertaining Ideas
There's something that just feels extra fancy when I think about what people eat in France and while I'm not really familiar with all that many French foods, I wanted to share my tasty interpretation of this concept with you!
My goal here was to capture upscale summer snacks meets totally no fuss and very doable! In case you haven't noticed, that's pretty much my overall goal in all things life and especially entertaining. You don't have to be any kind of expert or professional chef to be an absolutely amazing host. Where it all starts? A trendy bar cart or simple butler tray!
These make a simple focus for your summer gathering and let me tell you, it really helps on a few levels from deciding what to offer your guests all the way to cleaning up after. I thought this pretty gold toned tray was perfect for these simple upscale ideas. Now, after all of this talk, you must be thirsty... so I'm excited to share a simple cocktail idea featuring Pinnacle® Vodka that captures summer so simply.

Add ingredients over ice and don't forget the fancy summer inspired garnish that makes this pretty beverage pop.
