Summery Wine Spritzer

Sun.  Long nights.  Warm.  Tank tops.  Flip flops.  Vacation?

Summa summma summmaaaahhhh!!!!  Wooooo

I’ll stop singing now, my husband gives me dirty looks when I sing, especially to a computer screen.  Or in the car.  Or the shower.  Yeah, he doesn’t like my singing so much.  Moving on.

When I think of summer I also think; light, refreshing, and well, let’s face it, wine.

This spritzer fits the bill.

Do you follow me on Instagram?  If so, you probably saw this pic of my INSANE mint plant in the back yard.  I mean this plant is ridiculous. I love mint, like love, like really.  But seriously, I bought this plant at Lowe’s in one of those small containers, and my husband insisted on planting it.  Probably to take it’s fate out of my hands, and inevitably save it’s life.  If we’re being real around here, I would have put it in an adorable mason jar planter thing-y, then immediately forgot to water it and killed it.  So basically my husband saved the mint’s life.  And for him, this plant is grateful, and showed it’s gratitude by QUADRUPLING in size every. other. day.  So needless to say, I have been scrambling, trying to find something to make mint with.  Why a cocktail is the first thing to come to mind, I just don’t know.  That’s a small lie.

So it’s summer, and it’s hot, and if you’re crazy (like me) you have a ginormous mint plant.  You should make one of these spritzers, pull up a lounge chair, grab a book and some sunglasses and pretend you’re on vacation, even if it’s only for 20 minutes!

Sadie wanted in on the spritzer love.  But sadly, she’s not 21 yet.  Also, she’s a dog.
