We’ve run off to the beach for our summer vacation so for the time being, you won’t find any pumpkin recipes here. Since 1992 we’ve occasionally vacationed on Sanibel Island located on the southern gulf coast of Florida. We don’t come every year, but from time to time, we like to completely unwind, read books, lay under the palm trees and nap whenever we want. I posted about our trip several years ago so if you’re interested, check out the photos and rental information HERE.
Sanibel is well known as one of the best shelling locations in the United States. All these shells were found on the beach during past vacations.
In keeping with the beach theme I made a frozen version of the Fuzzy Navel. This is almost more smoothie than cocktail but still packs that signature punch.
Fresh peaches are sliced and frozen then blended with orange juice, vodka and peach schnapps. While I still enjoy a traditional fuzzy navel made with orange juice, vodka, and schnapps then served on the rocks, the addition of fresh frozen peaches adds a “smoothie” touch which I love.
- 2 cups sliced frozen peaches
- 1 cup orange juice
- ¼ cup vodka
- ⅓ cup peach schnapps
- Ice cubes (Optional)
- Combine all ingredients in the carafe of a blender and process until smooth. Serve and enjoy!
We’re enjoying plenty of fresh seafood this week so perhaps there is a recipe to share! We take long bike rides in the morning and pretend there’s nothing in the world to do but search for shells and sleep until we wake up. Thanks so much for stopping by!
