Our Mini Family: Spring Skies Spritzer

Spring Skies Spritzer


It's feeling a lot more like Spring around these parts, and the temperatures are rising here in Phoenix!

What Easter plans do you all have for this weekend? Adam is out of town visiting family back East, so I've been doing a lot of running errands and cleaning (and blogging, of course)! I am really excited for the warmer weather, and even more eager for summer. There is something you should all know about Phoenix in the summer time: locals love the summer. Why? Because that means less tourists!



The city can get really crowded--and being that I live in a place that is so warm all year round, it attracts a lot of out-of-towners (which is what us Phoenicians lovingly call "snow birds"). But once the temperatures start to rise, I know that my town will quiet down a lot and make things like even going to Starbucks or the grocery store significantly easier.  

And with easier day-to-day comes relaxing, and for me there is nothing I love more than relaxing outside in the shade with something cool and refreshing to drink! Today, I whipped up what I decided to call "Spring Skies Spritzer!" It's an awesome lemonade spritzer drink, with a gorgeous blue color.


Directions: Pour 1 1/2 tablespoons of Country Time Lemonade Starter (Classic Lemonade) into a mason jar glass. To make it a spritzer, add in 2 teaspoons of club soda. Add cold water to fill to about 8 fl oz and stir, and then add in 6-8 drops of blue food coloring( until you have achieved your desired color). Add in fun ice cubes and even lemon slices as an added garnish.

P.S. these silicone ice cube trays are the bomb dot com! I am sure I cannot be the only one who cannot stand when the ice cubes get so stuck in their trays that you end up having to smack and abuse the ice cube tray on the counter (just to get maybe 1 or 2 out). Having this silicone ice cube tray makes it easier to grab some ice when I need it most (and Heaven knows I'll need ice this spring!)





Why are you excited for Spring?
