Let's Boat to Dinner
The London Bridge, Lake Havasu, Arizona?
We were cooking in an RV kitchen,
so I hand kneaded the dough.
1/4 cup peach preserves
1 cup mint leaves
1 cup blackberries
1 lemon, sliced
1 bottle white wine
1 cup Gran Marnier
1 cup ginger ale
1. Muddle the preserves with mint leaves
and lemon in a large pitcher.
2. Pour in wine, Gran Marnier, and ginger ale; stir
3. Chill for at least an hour to allow flavors to marry.
4. Serve over ice with fresh mint sprigs.
With the cocktail underway, we began work on a Chicago deep-dish pizza.

What is great about being on vacation and making pizza is that you can walk down to the beach while the dough is rising.
