Blackberry + Mascarpone Crostini.

Enjoy this beautiful crostini, perfectly sweet with fresh blackberries, tangy mascarpone and local honey. This is the perfect quick + beautiful appetizer to serve in the Spring and Summer.

Enjoying fresh berries during the summer is hard to beat— especially if they are picked from your own backyard. Saving a few berries for a recipe can be hard for me because I could truly eat a whole batch in one sitting.

These Blackberry + Mascarpone Crostini’s are so simple to make and turned out to be beautiful and tasty. I definitely enjoy snacking on them and my brunch guests really enjoyed them as well. They have a rich few layers of flavor, and they are so quick to pull together just before your meal.

Bread, cheese, honey, and berries in one bite? Say no more. These crostinis are perfect to make as a snack for my kids to eat or as a summer appetizer for my guests to enjoy. The marscapone on this really levels out the sweetness from the honey and the blackberries.

We used honey from Savannah Bee Company when making this beautiful little platter, and a gorgeous silver platter from my Grandmother’s collection that elevated these bite-sized apps even further when I placed them on the table.

Bourbon Slush.

We’re celebrating a series of Classic Cocktail recipes with this refreshing Bourbon Slush drink, almost a vintage forgotten gem. It’s the perfect beverage for a hot summer day and a Southern cocktail staple, as is any bourbon whiskey drink.

It’s that time of year where things begin to slow down, and we finally get to enjoy the beautiful weather and summer sunshine. Personally, my favorite way to celebrate is with a refreshing and fun cocktail recipe. Today I want to share this delicious icy cocktail with you, straight from my Grandmother’s recipe card collection.

The only thing that makes a good cocktail even better is serving it up in vintage glassware, and using a recipe that was passed down to me form my Grandmother. She just loved to entertain and always had a cocktail late afternoon so this one must have made the rotation from time to time.

For a classic take on this recipe, include a drizzle of grenadine with a maraschino cherry to top it off. I’m not a big fan of red in general so we garnished with mint, but I was glad to see Grandma’s actual recipe coordinated with my liking as well.

This frosty refresher will quickly become your favorite summer cocktail. It could not be any easier to prepare, and freezes beautifully so you can make it ahead of time. Another tip is to pop your glassware in the freezer before serving to make sure your slush is cold and icy the whole time you are enjoying it.
