Summer Cocktails for FreshDirect

Jul

If you live in the New York metropolitan area, including parts of New Jersey, Connecticut and Philadelphia, you know ALL about FreshDirect, an online grocer that delivers fresh and prepared food to your door. It’s pretty much a godsend for anyone entertaining, cooking for a group or planning an event, because no one, and I mean NO ONE wants to lug gigantic cheese platters home on the subway. I’ve used them for years for my regular grocery needs, as well as for BBQs and cocktail events that I’ve produced – where they’d deliver fresh fruit, mixers, beer and wine. Guess what ELSE they are now delivering? BOOZE! That’s right, this game-changing move has turned FreshDirect into a one-stop online shop for all of your entertaining needs. Even if you’re just entertaining your own mouth! This is pretty exciting, you guys. Do you know how I was informed of this glorious news? Each season FreshDirect includes a brochure/insert in 50,000 of their boxes that go out over a two-week period, and they wanted me to create a few summer cocktail recipes to be included in their summer brochure! And to be posted on their blog. Of course, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to contribute to this very New York institution. Check out the recipes below, as well as their growing list of boozy bottles…
