Time to Refresh!

A cucumber and lime spritzer—simple, refreshing, and a welcome respite from the heat. All you’ll need is a bottle of fine sparkling water, ¼ cup of freshly squeezed lime juice, and 1 cucumber sliced, paper-thin. To make, combine all the ingredients in a clear pitcher, serve over ice in simple cocktail glasses with a slice of lime and enjoy! The combination of the subtly sweet cucumber and the bright lime makes for a clean and crisp taste that is a great way to start a summer morning or unwind in the evenings. By adding a splash of gin, this spritzer transforms magically into a great cocktail that can be sipped virtually all day long. If it sounds a little serious for your taste, a few teaspoons of simple syrup should soften it up.
