summer drink

Today was a particularly warm March day and it was utterly glorious. I rather inappropriately wore a comfortable maxi dress to work (suited it up with a blazer) and revelled in walking around the city and my neighbourhood running errands after. It reminded me of the brilliant drink I learnt of this summer, and made me crave it.

See, over the Christmas break, S and I decided to try out a little wine bar near our house for a relaxed date night.

And this wine bar, otherwise known as THAT BRILLIANT PLACE, had jugs of nectar on their specials board.

NECTAR OF THE HEAVENS.

ARE YOU UNDERSTANDING ME?

*UNBLINKING STARE*

moscato with lime on ice - summer drink

So simple, so good, and I can't believe I'd never thought of it:

Moscato laced with limes and their juice, served over ice in large red wine glasses.

Somehow, the combination is just electric - the sweetness of the moscato and its just right amount of bubbles, the tropical lime taste tempering the sweetness, the ice making it gushingly, oh so summer-quenching cold, and all that smoothness washing down from a large bulbous glass down your throat.

Oh.

My.

God.

And far be it for ME to hold back this amazing secret - instead, I SHARE my knowledge with you.

In the vain hope that if you have me over, you'll have a jug of said goodness ready for me, of course.
