Summery Somersault: A citrus twist to White Wine


This entry is for Sanjana of the awesome food blog Ko Rasoi. And it is definitely for the competition titled, 'wear your food'. Did you guys get a look at the charmed bracelet? It is one most adorable thing :) and this is also my first ever entry to a giveaway. So very excited. I am gonna go by the theme, 
'cocktails, mocktails' but without strawberries.  If I had to wear a food...that has to be a wine drink :)

Summer is not here. Not yet. But spring is. And here, a few warm days almost did the summery somersault. That's a cute word. Maybe that is what I will name this cocktail. And for me, any hint of warmth comes with the color yellow and the flavor citrus. And last sunday was indeed a warm day. So out I go-- well no reason really to go out--into the sun and across the street and to the grocery. And buy myself a ton of citrus and yellows. The idea being to have something brunchy and cocktail ish, given that I had my eye on the adorable charm of Sanjana :)

There was a dry white wine in the refrigerator. And bingo, here was the idea :). All these yellow, greens together and my my..what a lovely substitution I had of a regular sunday champagne brunch. 

Here you go

2 Oz of dry white wine. You can use ginger ale for a mocktail option as well 
3 Oz of good quality Lemonade. I used organic. But sparkling would be great too :)

2 slices of lime
2 slices  of lemon

Few cubes of Ice

In a tall glass or even a wine glass, lay down the strips of lemon and lime alternately. Add the ice cubes. Pour the wine and top it off with the lemonade. 

Simple..citrusy..refreshing..and this is the kick...the charm of this one makes you wanna go out and dance your way...even to the regular grocery. There is definitely a bounce in your step :)



Charmed!
