Are you loving summer but tired of these extra hot temperatures that seem to linger like a bad date?
Are you like us, thinking that ‘triple digit’ temps should only be reserved for heating up the barbecue, not the sidewalk?
We’re here to help!
Thanks to our friends at Pure Wow, we offer you the ultimate cooling-off summer punch recipe! This drink is sure to make you forget about why your cousins didn’t invite you over to swim in their pool last weekend. Let’s create our own little chill paradise.
The Pure Wow recipe suggests adding your favorite champagne to mix in with the punch. We say: why not our favorite MIA ROSA semi-sparkling Moscato or Dolce Rosso!
You’re going to like the way this tastes! Stay cool, friends.
⅓ cup sugar
⅓ cup water
¾ cup lime juice, preferably freshly squeezed
½ cup vodka
2 cups tonic water
2 cups raspberries
1 lime, sliced
1 bottle Champagne or sparkling white wine
1. In a small pot, bring the sugar and water to a boil over medium heat. Stir to make sure the sugar dissolves. Let cool to room temperature.
2. In a large pitcher, stir the cooled simple syrup with the lime juice, vodka and tonic water to combine. Stir in the raspberries and lime slices.
3. Just before you’re ready to serve, add the champagne (or MIA ROSA) of your choice. Serve chilled.
