The Transfusion Cocktail

A Refreshing & Easy Cocktail for the Golf Course & Beyond
Filed Under > Cocktail Hour

Transfusion cocktail recipe on Waiting on Martha Transfusion cocktail | Waiting on Martha The Transfusion, a cocktail recipe on Waiting on Martha

My husband, the avid golfer that he is, was actually the first one who introduced me to the Transfusion cocktail.  All golfers probably know about this one; you’re sure to find it at the gold club house or on the fairway itself. And ever since the hubs had me try one at home, I’ve been on team-Transfusion to make it more widely known and enjoyed. 

This cocktail packs a nice, fizzy, refreshing punch.  And what’s also refreshing is that the ingredient list doesn’t involve anything too crazy; it’s made vodka, ginger ale and grape juice.  Mixing it is easy too.  Simply combine equal parts of each ingredient over ice in a rocks glass.  Garnish with fruit of choice; I placed blueberries and orange on bamboo skewers for a balanced tang that screams summer. 

So whether you’re enjoying this on the back nine, at the clubhouse or at home on the sofa, savor a little taste of summer with this easy cocktail that gives a nod to manicured lawns and sunshine.  Truly, MKR

Peach White Wine Slushies

An Insanely easy and satisfying summertime sip

Summertime marks the season for slushies, friends. And not just any slushy; I’m talking about peach white wine slushies.  They’re tart, refreshing and quite possibly the easiest drink drink you’ve ever made boasting only 3 ingredients!   

You may remember our incredibly popular frose, or rose slushy, recipe.  While that’s still one of our favorites here at team WOM, these peach white wine slushies vie for our love just as hard.  They require a whopping three ingredients; the ones that you’ll almost definitely have on hand whenever the mood strikes for slushies.  

Frozen peaches serve as excellent ice cubes when blended with your favorite bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.  I say Sauv Blanc because I did try it with Pinot Grigio as I was recipe testing and it just wasn’t quite as tasty.  You’ll want some simple syrup to sweeten the batch up once blended, and you can add a gorgeous Georgia peach and some fresh mint from your CSA to garnish.  Believe me when I say, it’s a dangerously delicious drink that will keep you coming back for more.

So next time you’re wondering what to bring to the pool day or out on the boat for a day on the lake, look no further.  My Peach White Wine Slushies are just the thing you need. Truly, MKR

The Peach Bellini: The Perfect Brunch Cocktail

Forget the Mimosa, elevate your brunch game with this cocktail

Peach Bellini with fresh thyme garnish recipe on Waiting on MarthaPeach Bellini with fresh thyme recipe on Waiting on Martha Peach Bellini with thyme garnish recipe on Waiting on Martha 

Back when I lived in Chicago, the city that truly knows how to brunch in my humble opinion, I think I had a peach bellini—or several—every. single. weekend.  This light, refreshing cocktail has always tasted like sunshine on a warm morning to me with a little bubbly. 

Apparently, the Bellini was originally made sans peach, and with sparkling Italian wine…Prosecco to be exact.  Odds are, if you order this drink in Italy you’ll still get it this way.  Fortunately the beloved Bellini has also made its way to us, introducing succulent fresh peaches and Champagne to its list of ingredients. 

This recipe is of course the best when you can use fresh peaches.  So now that peach season is before us, save a few ripe ones for your peach bellini over brunch this weekend!  And if you just can’t wait for the next batch of peaches, don’t worry.  With the growing popularity of the peach bellini, it’s easy to find a ready-to-drink peach bellini in a bottle, and FYI Trader Joes has a GREAT one.  Cheers!  Truly, MKR
