It’s finally getting warm and feels like summer. Time for cookouts, hanging out with neighbors and friends or sometimes just relaxing and enjoying summer weather again. Here is a refreshing drink that is perfect for any of the occasions from gatherings to me time. This is a Blood Orange spritzer.

2.Pour seltzer water over ice into your glass to about half an inch from the top.
3. Fill the remainder of the glass with juice from juicer.
4.Lightly tap the mint on your hand and remove the stems and add as a garnish with blood orange.
