It's May and the weather in Cleveland has finally given us a break. We're now enjoying a splendid late spring filled with mid-70's temps, extended days and long blissful evenings on the patio. After a few heavier and heartier dishes we were all ready for something a bit lighter and easier, that would still make for a lovely dinner. What better way to celebrate the start of patio season than with Swordfish steaks and summery cocktails made-to-order.
A pre-dinner ride is always recommended.
Time to get the patio stocked for some new summer cocktail recipes I've been stalking on pinterest.
You must try these summer sippers. Chelsea + Tec Petaja's 'magic juice' via Design*Sponge; Grand Mariner smash via PURE; The Hopeful Spinster from Garnish with Lemon
Dinner was ridiculously easy.
Grilled swordfish with a cucumber/avocado/pomegranate seed salsa, herbed grilled corn and my go-to summer spinach pasta was complete in under 15 minutes.
