I just reviewed the lovely Prosecco Made Me Do It by Amy Zavatto. No one can doubt the wonder of a Bellini or Aperol Spritz but Amy has drinks that travel down other pathways. Deep travel. Deep flavor.

If you read this blog, you know my favorite beverage is lemonade. I consume it with total passion. I don’t, or I haven’t, put booze in it but now I feel compelled to grow up and give this a try.

Yes, this is Grown-Up Lemonade!
