French Inspired Summer Gathering

This post is sponsored by Pinnacle® Vodka.

Summertime is our favorite time to host gatherings with our friends. Longer days mean more time together. Whether it’s friends visiting or gathering with our neighbors, we are outside and enjoying food and drinks together. The adults chat about life and reminisce about their childhood adventures. It’s good for the soul to gather!

The other day I made a fun French-inspired platter to share and nibble on while we were enjoying the backyard. I made a few cocktails with award-winning Pinnacle® Original Vodka to sip on that evening. Pinnacle® Original Vodka is distilled five times in the heart of the Cognac region and only uses the finest French ingredients. I served up some yummy French-inspired sandwiches on some croissants with Dijon mustard. They were quite tasty.   French Inspired Gathering

I mixed Pinnacle® Original Vodka with sparkling lemonade and a slice of lemon on the rocks to create a refreshing drink for the backyard. These hot summer days call for something, and I prefer my vodka with a mountain of ice. It is my go-to vodka because of the quality ingredients.Pinnacle Vodka and Lemonade

We like to gather in the backyard around the fire pit, which seems odd in the dead of summer but the smoke tends to keep the bugs away, and on rare occasions, the weather is cooler in the evenings, so the fire isn’t too hot. So excellent you lose track of time. When my girlfriends and I hang out, we have so much to talk about and catch up on about our lives. From past gatherings to planning future gatherings. We have thrown the idea of visiting Paris into the mix a few times. I think it may happen one day!Pinnacle Vodka and Lemonade
