Because it’s Friday – Bottoms UP! AND cling!

And because I’m on my way to wonderful Scottsdale, Arizona, for a weekend-retreat with some of my bloggy friends! Cling Cling!!

I will tell you all about that trip once I get back, but you can also follow me on Instagram as I will be posting fun pics of my wild getaway! 😉

So, friends, Happy Friday!

Have I told you that I’m a sucker for all things fruity? And sweet. In liquid form?

In case you didn’t notice, we’re deep into summer here. I went to have my morning coffee on the back porch, but I turned back around as fast as I could. It is brutally hot out there. Fruity and cold Mimosas seem way more appropriate than a hot cup of coffee.

Buuuut, it was 7 in the morning… so…

…the neighbors would probably question my choice of beverage that early in the day. Thank goodness for weekend-brunch! Mimosas and Brunch go together like Rachel and Ross!

Technically, I always want my glass filled with Bubbly, but in the heart of this warm weather, I just want something coooooold.

This week we started with that Peach Upside-Down Ricotta Cake and we’re going to finish off the week with what I did with the leftover peaches.

Have you ever infused simple syrup with fresh herbs? If you haven’t, you really should. It’s wonderful! You can make it minty, you can make it basil-y (??), or even thyme-y, as I did here! It sounds like some fancy thing to do, but there’s nothing to it. Throw a couple sprigs of fresh thyme in a saucepan, combine it with water and sugar, boil, and voila! There’s nothing to it.

Then, you can combine it with some fresh peaches in a blender and go to town!

These Mimosas went over really, really well. So well, in fact, that I found myself with a glass in hand, taking a taste, over and over again, while on the job. I was just taste testing, but I got a good buzz, too! Thank God I work from home! Eventually, I had to gulp down the whole thing and call it a day. Or, maybe it was a night…

Honestly, these Peach and Thyme Mimosas were absolutely fabulous! Sweet, fruity cold, and refreshing. Just what a woman needs at 3 pm, on a Monday. Friday night works just as well. Even Saturday morning. Oh oh oh … Sunday morning brunch is even better!

  1. Another reason to miss the thyme plant I used to have growing in my back yard cement planter. (It’s great in Jamaican beef patties.)

    As to the alcohol, after running 4 errands and sweating through a 10 block long lane closure that reduced traffic to one direction at a time, I need the booze, even if it’s barely lunch time.
