Is Summer Over?
I'm not ready for summer to end. I love bright, sunny days, and I love being warm. Most of all I love the excitement in the air when the days are long and sunglasses are a must.
Happily, here in northern California, summer lasts a good long time. September and October are among the warmest, brightest months of our year. Shimmering blue skies and light hearts abound.
So I'm turning my back on all the ads with gold and red falling leaves. I'm saying NO to pumpkin spice lattes. There will be plenty of time to enjoy all that in November.
At our house we're keeping summer alive, and you can, too! To help you along I'm sharing Jonathan's recipe for a happy cocktail you can sip, no matter where you live, to keep that summer glow glimmering.
Jonathan's Summer Sparkle
Grab your favorite cocktail glass and fill it with ice.
Add 1 part Grapefruit Italian Soda (found at Trader Joe's or most grocery stores.)
- Add 1 part vodka, optional (ha!)
- Squeeze in the juice of half a lemon.
- Put on your shades, sip, and smile.
