Here’s one of the recipes for an orange salad that I learned at the Picnic Sides event at my local library. I think this recipe would work year ’round. Bon appétit!

Summer Cocktail #2,

Rosé Hurray! is very easy to make.

Add 3 or 4 expensive strawberries to a glass
Fill with inexpensive rosé wine (or more expensive if you like)
Add 1 or 2 Ts of Cocktail Caviar.

Cocktail Caviar consists of little gelatin eggs filled with vodka. It comes in an array of fruity flavors and gives a drink a unique look.
