|Stinson Beach looking South to Muir Beach|

The beach is pristine here! The sand is soft and the water is clean, great boogie boarding conditions. Unless it's a super hot day though, that cold Nor Cal water is sure to shock you. We prefer the beach closer to the beach houses as it is dog friendly! All kinds of pooches running around, fetching balls and frisbees provide endless hours of entertainment for me (and our little pup too!)

Welcome to Cocktail Friday everyone! I have been in the restaurant business for quite some time now and have spent some years behind the bar. It's a great feeling to create cocktail and watch the satisfied face of a customer as the yummy liquor hits their lips; I'm parched just thinking about it! Also, for all you entertainers, it's wonderful to have a repertoire of tasty drinks to whip up for thirsty guests or even for just yourself after a long week.
I came upon this delicious recipe surfing around one of my all time favorite sites, MyRecipes.Com. It was love at first sight! I can't think of a better way to celebrate summer than with a pitcher of this sensational sangria. The combination of peaches and raspberry's is genius (and beautiful) and the addition of vodka brightens this mix to its fullest Summer time potential. But beware; this one will sneak up on you!

It's sexy. It's naughty. It's Civello! Last year, I had the privilege of discovering this delicious wine and being that it's nice and summery these days, I thought I would share it with you! My love of wine could be its very own blog, but what I will say is that I love all wine…but not equally. I am not a passionate lover of white wine, but when I find one I do love…it's coming home with me! Civello is many things, but dull and boring is not one. She is complex with aromas of spice, and invigorating with flavors of white peach. She is crisp, full and refreshing - the perfect summer time wine. Civello is a blend of Pinot Gris, Verdehlo, a splash of Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay and occasionally they even add Muscato Fruliano or Albarino. That is one complicated lady! But your night won't be a bore when you pair her up with some creamy cheese and warm baguettes. Or, make it one on one – Civello is a great wine to drink alone. I hope you will check out their website and give her a try. And, if you are the type to judge a book by its cover….
