Mary Kay Andrews: The Newcomer Prosecco Sippers (Shark Bites)

I wanted deliciously beachy, no-fuss recipes that could be served poolside, packed into a cooler for the beach, or beautifully arrayed on a hostess’s table for your The Newcomer book club gathering (see menu).

My book club besties usually bring LOTS of wine to our gatherings, but why not surprise everyone with a fun twist on the Prosecco Sippers from my Beach House Cookbook? Use frozen or fresh strawberries and raspberries instead of peaches, and macerate with a little sugar to transform this cocktail into an entirely new creation I call Pink Shark Bites—a fun reference to the sharks—real and symbolic, that seem to be circling our heroine Letty.
