A Toast To Fall

Today is the last day of summer. Here in California, it does not feel like it. It was 95 degrees of dry heat. I like the warmth and the sun, but it would be nice to feel crisp cool air and actually start to see the leaves change. Maybe in another two months. But to celebrate with those who are enjoying fall and pulling out their harvest decor... two special drinks to welcome the new season.

Fall Orange Bitter

1 can frozen orange juice concentrate
1 cans Campari
2 cans water

In a pitcher, empty the contents of the orange concentrate. Fill the concentrate can with Campari and pour over the orange. Fill the can with water and add. Fill the can with water again and add. Stir. Serve over ice with a slice of orange.

Harvest Island Iced Tea

Are you ready for this twist?

1 part Citron Vodka
1 part Captain Morgan
1 part Campari
1 part Triple Sec
1 1/2 parts Sweet and Sour
splash of Diet Coke or Coca Cola

Pour various components over ice and swizzle. Enjoy!
