Happy Summer Solstice, y’all! The longest day of the year. Enjoy with a walk in the sunshine (or even the rain is nice too), a fresh glass of sun tea and pick a flower for a tiny vase.
I’m becoming a bit more spiritual and witchy (in the good Glinda kind of way) as I get older. So enjoy these ideas to celebrate Litha. Where’s that gold candle of mine?
Happy Summer Solstice! No more classes, no more worries (ha), just me with my toes in the sand and the sun on my face. Enjoy the summer peeps!
I have found my summer wine.
It is crisp, elegant and so very tasty. And it is a Spanish rosé. Perfect for the summer months that will soon be here! I had it just last week at a new restaurant in Ses Salines and I really wished someone would have ordered another bottle but alas, it didn’t happen.
Naranjas Azules (Blue Oranges), from the bodega Soto y Manrique, is the name of my new favorite.
I love the name.
Made from the Grenache grape found in northeast Spain. It has a fresh aroma, with notes of strawberry, cherry, jasmine, mint and fennel.
It pairs excellently with fish, white meat, pasta and cheese. My cheese plate was exquisite with my Naranjas Azules to accompany it.
Tell me your mouth is watering and you are dying for a glass of this rosé.
If you live in Spain, I found Naranjas Azules in the gourmet section of Es Corte Ingles.
Check it out and post a pic!Would love to see your pretty face and that beautiful rosé. Cheers!
