My favorite season is summer. I look forward to seeing local gardens bloom with lavender and relish the way the berries envelope the valleys as the wine grapes gently ripen. It is a magical time! I love the romance of the vineyards in each season, but summer… ahh summer is truly unique with its robust sunny flavors that tie my days and gatherings together like a strand of pink jasmine.

Living in Wine Country, it’s easy to find beguiling herbs in every garden and market. I love to use these herbal delights to refresh drinks and cocktails using local spirits. It’s these simple moments of summer that I’ve come to celebrate — the aroma of fresh mint syrup and blackberry jam wafting through the kitchen, the sheer delight of a red, white, and blue “berry” celebration, or a lavender tea to watch the hummingbirds.

The magic happens when you take a deep breath and embrace simple joys. Look for these special summer moments where you live. Or gladden your own heart with a cup of tea — hot or iced — and a tiny pitcher of simple syrup served alongside. We’ve curated a few of our favorite summer recipes here, from gorgeous cocktails to easy nibbles, sweets, and take-away treats. You can call it a day, a celebration… it’s that simple.

One more thing. Always stop and smell the mint!
