Citrus Spritzers

These are long days at home and I find I am punctuating my day with drinks. (Ha! I know what you’re thinking... but not those kind of drinks—at least not until dinner.) Coffee and hot cocoa wake us and warm us in the morning but when we need a little “pick me up” in the afternoon, I often turn to a fruit juice spritzer. The bright burst of fruit and bubbles is a fun little treat that helps me stay focused. I especially love spritzers made with fresh citrus juice, which is in season and the varieties are spectacular.
