A lovely Friday Refresher to fortify you for the weekend!
1 tablespoon granulated sugar ~ I used Turbinado sugar
1/3 cup freshly squeezed citrus juice (a nice variety of lemon, lime and orange)
orange, lemon and lime slices
1 cup Marsala wine*
2-3 cups sparkling mineral water or selzer
Combine all in a pitcher or large jar. Add sparkling mineral water. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Pour into a tall glass, stick a straw in it and enjoy!
*Marsala wine is a fortified wine traditionally from Sicily (usually served as an aperitif or dessert wine~or used to flavor desserts, like Zabaione). If you don’t have it on hand, any white, sweet wine will do.
