Summer Recipes

Summer is officially here in the Bay Area, which can mean overcast with chill in the air to hot with humidity.  I tend to eat based on how I feel inside and out.  When its hot, I eat less and I want lighter items.  Cool days, I may eat a little more or just heavier items.  Here are a couple of my favorite cocktails and dishes no matter what the weather is:

The Boulevardier - a classic cocktail and cousin to the negroni, this drink is a crowd pleaser as well as easy to make.

1 1/2 oz. Bourbon                1 oz. Campari         1 oz. Sweet Vermouth

Glass: cocktail/coupe                                               Garnish: orange slice, lemon twist or cherry Stir long and well with ice in a mixing glass and strain into a cocktail glass.
