Peach Mules

Well, sometimes the best  intentions for a shower and mascara turn into something else entirely.  In this case, the something was entirely more delicious and entirely more fun!  Yes my friends, I’d like to introduce you to peach mules.  They’re here to sweeten up your Summer!  I’d also like to introduce you to the lovely Sarah Dickenson, she’s been working with me behind the scenes here since February and today she makes her debut on the site with this amazing cocktail.  Lucky for me (and you!) she has years of bar-tending experience under her belt, so she’ll be whipping up cocktails for us all Summer long!  This one is delicious, I know you’ll love it!  xx- Sarah  {photos: Sarah Dickenson for A House in the Hills)

    What stunning photos! Ripe peaches are one of the best parts of summer, and this drink sounds like the perfect way to use them.
