This week it's my turn!
So I will give you an illustrated recipe every day this week. They are some of my all-time summer favorites. We will work ourselves through a complete dinner party, starting off with the drinks today.
Well now, your guests have arrived, you've fixed your hair, you're wobbling on your new high heels, and it's warm outside. What will you serve? One of the best drinks I've ever had: the Spritzer. Easy as pie, so no fussy lists of ingredients.
Officially, the Spritzer is made with Aperol, but you can use Campari too. It's less sweet, but sometimes that's what you want.
If you feel creative, please add fruit: I like raspberries in it, parts of peach, tiny balls of melon, or slices of grapefruit. A slice of orange will work terribly well too. You can even add a twig of tarragon if you feel utterly fancy.
But without all of that fruit, it's still a perfect way to start your summer evening.
