Picnics & Pastis • Summertime Is Here

Pin It

Most definitely my new summer libation. Pastis. Truly delicious if you are a fan of anise or absinthe + light, crisp, bubbly concoctions which dance on your tongue. Salut!

A a photo taken by Gwen for a little get together I like to call "Ladies who lunch but not a socialite in the bunch, lunch"

Fresh baked bread, olive tapenade, crisp linen, brie and apples, fried chicken, honeysuckle and pastis. The sights, scents and tastes of a South Louisiana summer –– and what a summer it's crafting itself to become! 

Happy Memorial Day, everyone!

This makes me want to curl up on one of those blankets and sip on a pastis.

Ladies- always know that we can get together anytime and recreate these environs!

Nicole- I segued these two experiences together......we didn't have Pastis for the picnic, so you didn't miss a thing! My neighbors and I shared a few of the cocktails this past weekend. The tastes and scents of summer!

Viva le hothot heat ;)
