Summertime Sipping Heats Up for National Tequila Day

While enduring excessive temperatures and heat warnings in North Texas, I’ve tried to stay cool while sipping chilled beverages. My favorite summertime sippers are white wine spritzers or an ice-cold beer served in a mug from the freezer. But the best thirst quencher I’ve tried this summer is Zonin® Coastal Lemon Spritz. This refreshingly crisp, citrusy drink, a new twist on limoncello, was created by the Zonin family from the famed Amalfi coast of Italy.

Zonin Coastal Lemon Spritz

Zonin has 200 years of award-winning, wine-making experience, and this is their first sparkling wine Spritz available at the marketplace. The lemon spritz is already perfectly mixed, so it’s ready to serve straight from the bottle. Just pour over ice, swirl, and enjoy. I instantly felt 10 degrees cooler.

I’ve also tried their Zonin Prosecco mixed with frozen orange juice and served over ice, and found it to be the perfect cocktail for a leisurely summer brunch. For more info, or to order, please visit
