Ugh, it’s steamy here in Minneapolis today. Once it gets hot like this, I stick to four food groups: sushi, salads, grilled food and fruit. To be accompanied by any and everything liquid. Water, sweet tea, Mexican Coke, La Croix, cold press, bubble tea, beer—I swear I can’t get enough to drink June through August.
And one drink that tastes like summer in every sip is this little beverage. I’m not sure whether it’s sangria or spritzer, so I just call it drink. (Not to be confused with Drank.) The ginger soda adds some sass to the sweet combination of berries and peaches. Yummmmmy.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
♥ 1/2 Bota Box of White Zinfandel
♥ 2 bottles of Goose Island Spicy Ginger Soda or any other kind of ginger soda or ginger beer
♥ 2 peaches, chopped, frozen
♥ a handful of fresh raspberries, frozen
♥ a pitcher or insulated water cooler
HOW TO MAKE
Put frozen fruit in pitcher.
Top with ginger soda and wine.
I enjoyed some on the stoop last night.

If you give it a whirl, let me know what you think! You can also mix up what fruit you add—frozen nectarine chunks and sliced, frozen strawberries are both good.
What are some of your favorite summer drinks?
