Orange & Mint Spritzer


Lately I've been thinking too much about what's yet to come. 2011 started with so many hopes of different things. Most of them already came true. Which makes me think about the future.

Next year I'll be living in a different country, working at a different place, taking pictures with a different camera, basically, living a different life. I'm not so good with changes, even if they're good. 

I can only hope that everything will turn out all right. As scared as I am to do certain things, they're all necessary.

Just like this seltzer, I hope that all things to come are sweet and bubbly, for me and for you.   

serves two

  • the juice of two Oranges
  • 8 ounces of carbonated ater (I used Pellegrino)
  • a few sprigs of mint
  • 2 tbsp of Simple Syrup (recipe below)

-To make the simple syrup, mix equal parts of sugar and water, heat until the sugar has completely dissolved. 

-Mix the orange juice with simple syrup (to taste), pour into two glasses. Add chopped up mint leaves and some ice cubes.

-Fill each glass with 4 ounces of carbonated water. Mix and enjoy.
