Second Serve

Well.....Hello Summer! Someone flipped the switch this weekend and things are heating up around here. No complaints from this girl, I'm beyond happy for bright sunny mornings and all the day light hours that lead into dusk. I'm also happy to sip on just about any type of spritz imaginable. I love a good craft cocktail with bubbles, be it soda water, prosecco, ginger beer, tonic, I think you get my drift. This cocktail is mixed with a Fino Sherry which is one of my all time favorite ingredients in a cocktail. I love what sherry brings to a cocktail, with Fino it's refreshing, dry and clean. Amaro Montenegro delivers those herbal notes with a bit of sweetness and the addition of fresh lime and some simple syrup seem to round things out and make for the perfect balance of tart and sweet. Happy Summer and happy Aperitvo sipping my friends.
