Summer Spritzers

It’s summer! The season of long sunny days and spending time out on the patio sipping your favorite drinks is finally here. Of course, you can always stick with the classic cold beer or chilled glass of chardonnay, but sometimes it can be fun to do something to mix it up a bit.

Independence Day is one of the highlights for summer entertaining, and with it being just around the corner, we wanted to share some of our favorite summer spritzer recipes. And what is a summer spritzer without some tasty cheese pairing suggestions?!?  So, we’ve got you covered with something to snack on while you sip and savor!

Zesty Wine Spritzer recipe - The fresh slices of red chili pepper that give this sip a little heated bite would pair wonderfully with naturally smoked Goudam. Click here to buy 

Grapefruit Ginger Spritzer recipeThis sip is a little sweeter, so try pairing this with a savory cheese that is traditionally eaten with sweet accompaniments. Cheeses such as aged Gouda or lovely sharp Cheddar will really liven up the experience.

Rosemary Gin Spritzer recipeThis fizzy cocktail has a light herbaceous flavor that makes it a natural companion to a creamy tangy Goat Cheese topped with your favorite chopped nuts.  Click here to buy  

Lemon-Thyme Tequila Spritzer recipeA good jack cheese brings out the full flavor of strong tequila and makes a perfectly balanced bite! Try pairing it with our Organic Meadow Jack.  Click here to buy 

Fig & Bourbon Fizz recipeFrom smoky bourbon and fresh mint to sweet fig, this fizz has a wonderful rich taste.  Enjoy this drink with a complementary buttery Triple Crème Brie spread over your favorite crusty bread. 

Happy Eatings!
