I’m in a bit of denial and I’m guessing I’m not the only one that is having this problem. You guys, it’s the end of summer. We are watching the last few weeks of summer slip away from us and it’s a bit depressing. This is what I’m going to do about it. I’m going to enjoy every last piece of summer that I can since I can’t really stop the seasons whenever I desire. That would be pretty amazing though wouldn’t it? If someone has that power can you please do that or just take winter out of the “Season” line up. That would just be swell. I guess I have the power to do that too. It’s called moving south!!! Maybe this will be the year I convince my hubs that snow isn’t fun and we should do that. Wish me luck peeps!
Part of my game plan for enjoying every last bit of summer includes hanging out at the lake on the weekends as long as I can. While at the cabin one of my favorite things to do is sip on a cold beverage in the afternoon. Give me a good book with that beverage and I’m a happy camper. One of my favorite beverages to enjoy during said activities is Barefoot Refresh! Barefoot Refresh is a light-bodied, vibrant spritzer that is great over ice and perfect for casual summertime occasions such as cookouts, baseball games or laying by the pool. I really can’t think of a summertime activity that it’s not perfect for! As delicious as Barefoot Refresh is on its own I decided to take it up a notch and create a delicious sangria with it. You’re welcome! I decided since it is the end of summer to go with a delicious Red Apple Sangria made with the Crisp Red Spritzer. This way we can drink it right through the fall seasons with this delicious flavor combo! Thinking ahead aren’t I?
So throw that end of season barbecue, invite all your friends and send summer out with a bang. While you are celebrating make sure to grab a glass of Barefoot Refresh ! If you are feeling really crazy and wild grab a S’more while you are getting barefoot and having a great time!
Barefoot Refresh comes in five refreshing blends: Crisp Red Spritzer, Crisp White Spritzer, Sweet White Spritzer, Summer Red Spritzer and Perfectly Pink Spritzer. These vibrant spritzers retail for approximately $7 for a 750ml bottle.
