It’s spritz season!

Get your spritz on with this week’s Drink of the Week. This cocktail mixes a few of our favorite things: a spritz and yuzu.

Yuzu is an incredibly popular ingredient in the cocktail world right now, but it’s been popular worldwide for a long time. The citrus fruit is thought to be a hybrid of mandarin orange and the ichang papeda. Mix this with the citrus and tart flavor from freshly squeezed lime juice topped with fresh mint for a bright pop of color. It’s a great cocktail to put together in the warm weather.

Give it a try.
