Summer is finally here, and I am sharing one of my favorite cocktails of the season that’s super easy.  It has become my go-to for entertaining.  I had the best time collaborating and sharing my recipe with my good friends at Draper James.  Read the full interview here:

During the summer, I love flavors that are fresh and invigorating.  Not to mention that I’m a girl who loves her bubbly.  This lemon basil champagne spritzer is fabulous!  When I have events such as bridal showers, girls brunches, or pretty much any event, I make a pitcher of it, and it is always a hit.  The recipe is below, and  I hope you enjoy it!
