Here is a little sneak peek into our vacation at the beach this year. Summer entertaining with good friends and neighbors is what it’s all about. The beach bash menu is easy after a day of swimming and can be served at home or at the beach.

Beach Bash Menu

Get the party started with a fun cocktail. I went through loads of favorites on my Beverage Board, but decided to test out a Very Berry Sangria made with prosecco. We will certainly be making this again…

The recipe is easy and needs to be prepared ahead. Once we came back from the beach I just needed to add the last two ingredients.

Very Berry Sangria


Combine 1 cup pitted and halved cherries, 1 cup blueberries, 1 cup quartered strawberries, ½ cup chopped peaches, and 1/3 cup brandy in a large pitcher; chill 2 hours. Stir in 1 cup pineapple juice and 1 (750-milliliter) bottle chilled prosecco. Garnish with fresh mint. Serves 8.
