After yard chores, garden prep and cleaning the grill, this refreshing cocktail is a well-deserved reward and a good reminder that before summer arrives in earnest we should still make sure to enjoy ... Springtime!
(recipe and tunage after the jump)
So be sure to enjoy the season, enjoy a refreshing cool beverage, and enjoy this seasonally appropriate song from Mike Errico, a supremely talented singer, songwriter and composer for film and TV, to whom I was introduced (musically speaking) by my dear friend John.
1 ½ oz Absolut Kurant Vodka
3 oz Cranberry juice
½ oz Fresh lime juice
1 ¼ oz Bitter Lemon mixer (Bar chef’s note: this can be hard to find. If it’s not at your grocery, check with a good liquor store)
Lime slice for garnish (optional)
- Mix vodka, cranberry juice and lime juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously.
- Strain and pour into glass with ice cubes – fill glass about 2/3 full.
- Add the Bitter lemon soda, stir, garnish with lime slice if desired, and enjoy. Cheers!
