A couple of ideas to enjoy something cool


In this hot summer, we are always looking for something cool and so we decided to offer to you a recipe for another “top” cocktail, which we think is ideal when is so hot …. by a typically American drink here is a perfect recipe for summer.


  • vanilla ice cream
  • Red wine (we recommend the Cannonau)
  • sparkling water
  • cherries



  1. Put two scoops of ice cream in a glass tumblers
  2. Pour the wine and sparkling water over ice cream
  3. Finally, add cherries on top

To try…


In this other recipe instead we suggest the “Sangria Popsicles”, ideal for cooling off when it is “hot”. “Special” popsicles  made with wine!


  • 3 Yellow peaches
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of peach schnapps
  • 1 cup of white wine like Malvasia



Thinly slice a peach and put it in a salad bowl or cup along with raspberries, sugar and a tablespoon of Malvasia (see post or buy). Mix everything gently and let stand for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, clean and chop coarsely other 2 peaches and put them together with the cup of Malvasia and 3 tablespoons peach schnapps in a mixer(mix until it become a puree). Pour the puree into molds for popsicles (fill up to about 2/3) and add a few thin slice of peach and a few raspberries into each mold. Put in the freezer for a few hours (about 3 hours), and voila, you have your Sangria popsicles!

PS: if you want you can prepare the “Sangria” at your leisure, with other kinds of fruit, you will obtain spectacular popsicles!

Not Only Beaches: Porto Santoru

Porto Santoru – Lanusei

Mediterranean scrub, pebbles and an incredible sea


The beach of Porto Santoru is located in the town of Lanusei, south of Barisoni and north of Caletta Pagliuzze Dorate. Here is possible to see the remains of a pier and of abandoned structures, once used for the loading of minerals extracted in the hinterland. Nearby indeed, for the most part inside a private property where there’s an animals breeding, was the Santoru mine of which there are numerous evidences. The pier is one of these and was built trying to exploit the natural shape of the cove. With the adjacent beaches shares a special natural beauty, due to the crystal clear sea and the wilderness of rocky configuration of the coastline. The beach is made of pebbles and sand, and the sea, of a color between emerald green and the blue, is of an incredible transparency. The sea bottom is a mixture of sand and rocks and is very loved and appreciated by those who do underwater fishing and snorkeling. Characteristic of this part of the coast in fact is the presence of beautiful cliffs interspersed with stretches of sand particularly suggestive.

The cove is a haven of peace and relaxation, completely isolated and surrounded by a Mediterranean scrub green and fragrant. Not suitable for those who want  a beach that has full facilities.
