That looks tasty!!

The thing we drink in the summer is kir, dry white wine (Sauvignon Blanc, etc.) with a slug of creme de cassis in it, a couple ice cubes and a lemon twist (ok, I'm lazy about that...), bright and refreshing. Maybe 6-10G of carbs. Kir Royale is champagne w/ creme de cassis and a recent development is the Katyusha, w/ Champagne and raspberry vodka, sometimes fancy w/ sugared lemon rim and raspberries when we're organized.
