Too many think of adventure as a big, grand quest. It can be much simpler than that, a little act of spontaneity, reacting to what’s around you, embracing it, like the gift of a warm day after a seemingly endless winter.
Here for a good time and we hope a long time; set up quickly, caution thrown to the wind as shorts are sprung on, sunglasses emerge from the drawer, drinks orders are in and the chairs are out. The premature taste of a lazy, hazy, summer dream is very welcome indeed.
The first sight of sun is as unexpected as it is good..
Fresh and bright, a summer thirst quenching spritz build on citrus bursts of pink grapefruit and blood orange. Like the sun, once out it won’t last long.
