La Frutta D'estate.... Summertime Fruit...

Growing up,  we always ended a meal with fruit.  Different fruits,  but always what was in season and perfect.  In the summer, when peaches are so sweet and delicious,    my father would always slice a peach or two from the bowl and add it to his wine glass enjoying the subtle peach flavor that would infuse his wine.   At the end of his meal,  he would pick  out the slices one by one and share them with us.  We still do this, and  I can't do it without thinking  of my father and how he enjoyed it.

Another refreshing treat,  muddled peaches with  fresh mint,  a shot of Vodka... topped off with a little  San Pellegrino Water ,  on the rocks... Perfect summertime cocktail...
