RECIPE: Limoncello Spritzer



Editorial director Leslie Garrett’s secret to sustainable summer drinks is her Soda Stream. These bubble-creating CO2 machines reduce the need to buy soda and seltzer in cans or plastic. Plus, they add a quick and easy “spritz” to any drink. Try this one with a splash of limoncello and a sprig of organic mint from your garden.


Seltzer water


Fresh mint


Pour a glass of seltzer water over ice and add a splash of limoncello. Garnish with fresh mint. You can also add a bit of torn or muddled mint for a stronger bite. Enjoy your plastic-free drink in your favorite place to lounge on a hot summer day.
