Thirsty Thursday: Earl Grey Spritzer

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start.

Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.

Tea time meets happy hour in this mild and well-balanced Earl Grey Spritzer. Naturally light and refreshing, this cocktail isn’t ready to give up on the still-warm summer air even as it slowly fades into autumn.
