Peace In The Valley
You may remember the backyard dinner party shoot that took place at the yellow barn a few weeks ago. In addition to all the amazing vendors that created everything from set design and paper goods, to flower arrangements and cake pops, the makeup artist brought her singer/songwriter husband who also has a flair for mixology. I’m not much of a cocktail drinker, but Reuben’s peachy concoction was quite tasty, and when I realized that I could pass along a brand new recipe to you guys, I couldn’t resist posting our first, and most likely only, cocktail recipe. And be sure to check out www.reubenbidez.com and buy his music….think of it as a way to leave a tip.

***Of course, everything always tastes better with really fresh peaches. For this shoot, we shopped local with peaches from The Peach Truck. You can find the truck easily in the Nashville, TN area, on their Small Town Peach Tour, or by ordering online.
