Barefoot Refresh® is sponsoring this post about the time of year when the sun is shining, memories are made and cold, refreshing drinks are in demand.
As we head into September, the days here in Maryland are warm, but the evenings are cool and comfortable.
Summer’s coming to a close and my favorite time of the year is just beginning—fall!
Whether I’m enjoying a bonfire on the beach with friends, or gathering on my back porch with the book club girls, crisp and fizzy spritzers go hand-in-hand.
Every summer we spend a week at the Delaware shore with my side of the family. Our house sits right on the beach, so in addition to putting my feet up and reading a good book (or three), we also have fun gathering around evening campfires with toasty marshmallows, drinks, and lots of laughs.
Life’s not always a vacation, but at home we have an amazing screen porch that spans the back of our house, overlooking a couple of acres peppered with old black walnut trees. It’s the perfect, relaxing spot for entertaining my book club buddies, who love no-fuss food and drinks as much as I do.
And a lot of times, especially watching the sunset from the porch, it kind of feels like an escape.
Whether it’s at the beach around the campfire with my sister, or gabbing about a great end-of-summer read with my book club, refreshing spritzers are a fun addition!
Throw a few frozen black raspberries (these were picked from our bushes earlier this summer) into a glass of vibrant and light-bodied Barefoot Refresh Perfectly Pink Spritzer, and you have a great, yummy alternative to using plain old ice cubes.
Plus, the berries are yummy to eat afterwards—bursting with flavor.
What’s not to love?
Barefoot Refresh comes in five refreshing blends and retails for approximately $7 for a 750ml bottle: Crisp Red Spritzer, Crisp White Spritzer, Sweet White Spritzer, Summer Red Spritzer and Perfectly Pink Spritzer.
I’m going to try the Crisp White Spritzer next!
Barefoot Refresh is a vibrant, light-bodied spritzer that’s perfect to serve at fun, summertime occasions in celebration of ‘Spritzer Season!’
