Weekend Kitchen: Favorite summer drink


By Julia Westhoff

It is hot. Too hot to move. Too hot to think. Too hot for my little Minnesota-bred heart to bear. But I’m not as cranky as I could be, thanks to a delicious new beverage. I have been completely enamored with a new (to me) summery cocktail – a wine spritzer with lime juice. It is light and bright and absolutely perfect for hot day. I’ve tried it with both rose and white wine and it is totally delicious every time. Here’s a rough recipe, if you care to imbibe:

Wine Spritzer
Combine ½ glass white or rose wine with ½ glass club soda. Juice ½ lime and combine all. Serve over ice.
