Tipsy Tips from Well•Pict!
The melting snow and the sweet little bird chirps that hail the beginning of spring get us in a real patio-party, sunning-ourselves-on-the-veranda frame of mind. And what signifies oversized sunglasses and Mrs. Roper-worthy caftans like sparkling cubes of ice clinking in a glistening highball? We can almost taste the bright zippiness of those perfect springtime cocktails now. And while winter may call for the warmth of brandy or a rum toddy, spring and summer is all about nature’s bounty—the freshest fruit blended into or floating atop the perfect icy concoction. And, when it comes to springtime refreshments, strawberries and raspberries really pull ahead of the pack. Without these warm-weather heavy hitters, daiquiris are dull and margaritas are just meh. From sangria to the stiffer stuff, there’s no cocktail dilemma that the addition of fresh berries can’t solve. And if traditional spirits don’t lift yours, strawberries and raspberries can raise plain juice or seltzer water to instant fancy mocktail status. And if you think we’re suggesting that any ol’ strawberries and raspberries will do, think again. For superior springtime drinks that are as beautiful as they are delicious, make sure your fridge is stocked with Well•Pict Berries.
