It is 84 degrees in the Capital City today and that means it is time to crush some citrus, uncork the Franzia, and pour yourself a spritzer.
When I am not out there crushing the miles I like to unwind with a delightful white wine spritzer. To follow up on yesterday's excellent travelogue segment I must ask you: What food or beverages do you associate with time and place?
I can think of so many places I have been and how certain flavors and customs sanctify the moment of truly arriving "there."
Turkish coffee when Tim comes to town from Bosnia.
Young red wine on ice in Barcelona.
Lemonade at Chik-Fil-A.
Sharing a Corona Light with Mom.
Una chupita con Bighorn.
A pint of Guiness anywhere,
-and spritzers all summer long.
