Impromptu Summer Entertaining

When friends unexpectedly drop in this summer… be ready to greet them in style.

This is a refreshing way to cool off your guests and beat the summer heat. Summer is a great time for refreshing lemon and strawberries are in season! Use both when welcoming guests at your home, here’s how:

Limoncello Spritzers

Fill 6 tumblers halfway with ice. Stir 1/2 cup of limoncello and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice (fresh) into each glass. Top with 1/4 cup of club soda and serve. Add a garnish of lemon to squeeze and a fresh sprig of mint

San Pellegrino Limonata is a great nonalcoholic choice and lemonade for the little ones assures that everyone has something cold to sip on. Mix up a pitcher with ice and throw in some strawberries for color and taste.

Lady Fingers with Strawberries and Cream

Serve washed whole strawberries with just the tops cut off in a bowl. Set the bowl on the center of a platter and surround with lady fingers (place on the platter like the petals on a flower). Next to the platter offer whipped crème (or try 1 cup mascarpone cheese & 1/3 cup chilled heavy cream whipped for 2 minutes).

Keep these items on hand and you will always be ready to greet unexpected road weary guests with a wonderfully refreshing treat.
