Author Notes

I've traditionally been a purist when it comes to pink wine, but it occurred to me recently that if someone wanted to enjoy the illusion of drinking more rosé without actually getting tipsy, she could combine it with soda water and make a spritzer. (You can take a girl out of the 80s...) What's more, she could whizz up some of those divinely delicious strawberries from the farmers market and add a fruity burst to her spritzer. —Merrill Stubbs
