Refreshing wine spritzer with our own teeny-tiny lemon

August 16, 2012 § 8 Comments

Our friends Olga and Anthony gave us a lemon tree last year.  It has since spent the last year languishing on our patio.  Last year it was so hot that whatever lemons it had were destroyed by the heat.  This year, we successfully harvested our first extremely tiny lemon from the plant.

I wasn’t sure what to do with it, but a celebration seemed in order.  So, I made a spritzer…and actually it was quite good.

Green Pocket Protector’s refreshing wine spritzer

Fill a large glass to the top with crushed ice.  If you don’t have crushed ice, use regular cubes (but remember that the crushed is ever so much better).  Take half a lemon, and rub it along the perimeter and inside of the glass.  Then squeeze the lemon into the glass.  Fill the glass halfway with wine…whatever kind of wine you have on hand will work perfectly (we used a Pinot Noir, and it turned out to be about 6-ounces).  Fill the rest of the glass with sparkling water (Pelligrino or Perrier).  Top with the squeezed lemon half.

Take yourself and the glass onto the patio, and enjoy the sunset.
