Al Fresco Dining

Summer is finally here.  With longer evenings and warmer weather, many of you will be thinking ahead to entertaining outdoors with friends and family. I know we are and we can’t wait to dine al fresco, especially since our risers are weather-safe.

With the variety of sizes, you can not only use the risers to display your dishes, but also make them a function piece to your tablescape. The 6″ leg makes the riser a perfect height for serving beverages. Place your beverage container atop the riser and guests can easily fill their glasses.

Speaking of filling your glasses, we just have to share with you our favorite summertime cocktail – Just Peachy White Wine Sangria. Here’s the recipe for you to try at home:

Just Peachy White Wine Sangria

1 bottle of white wine (Riesling, Chablis, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc)
1/2 Cup Peach Schnapps
¼ to ½ C Sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
2 slices Peaches.  Frozen is fine too
1 Sliced Orange
½ Mango.  Peeled & Sliced
½ Liter Ginger ale or club soda

Prep time   5 minutes         
Total Time 10 minutes

Pour wine with schnapps in the pitcher and add sliced peaches, orange, and mango.

Next, add sugar & stir gently. Chill mixture for at least one hour.

Add Ginger ale or club soda just before serving.



No matter what beverage you decide to make for your guests, we are sure they will love the ease of pouring themselves some more with the elevated beverage dispenser on one of our sturdy risers.
