There is another beverage I'd like to add to our pantheon of warm weather faves: the white wine spritzer. Now, I know what you're thinking, "Mr. Lala, isn't that a girlie drink?" This is a common misconception, so let me set the record straight. White wine spritzers are not girlie. They're Euro (there's a distinction, if a subtle one). And they're delicious.
Fill a tall glass with ice, pour two-thirds full of dry white wine, top off with soda water, squeeze in a wedge of lemon or lime, daintily extend your pinky, and sip away. You'll love it. I promise.
