SpikedSeltzer Refresh!

SpikedSeltzer Refresh!

I don't know about you but I think that I am officially done with winter!  Spring has arrived and what better way to welcome it in, than with a cocktail.  We are big seltzer drinkers in our home so when I heard that a company had "spiked" seltzer, I decided that I must try it.  We visited a local liquor store where Spiked Seltzer just happened to be having a demo and sampled their lime flavor.  It did not disappoint in the least.  I was expecting it to have a strong alcohol taste, but it did not at all.  Instead, it was light, refreshing, and surprisingly, gluten free!  While Spiked Seltzer is fabulous on its own, I decided to begin mixing it with various things.    

A friend in Japan posted a picture of a beverage she was drinking, which happened to be Creme de Cassis and club soda.  I had never had Creme de Cassis but it looked divine so I ran out and picked some up.  I filled an old fashioned glass with Spiked Seltzer, topped it with some grapefruit juice, and drizzled the cassis on top.  The result was the most wonderfully refreshing drink!  Thank you to Ayako for introducing me to Creme de Cassis and for inspiring this beverage!
