Finally, it's starting to feel like spring outside — my daffodils are starting to bud and perennials are poking out of the ground.

That means it's high time to shift from red wine to white; dark liquor to light; from rich and spicy notes to more floral, fruit-forward flavors. 

Here's a light, bright, not-so-boozy cocktail with which to celebrate the season. Made with Citizen Cider's Dirty Mayor, which has just a touch of ginger, and splashes of brandy and elderflower rum, it's a sparkling, citrusy quaff that won't put you under the table, should you happen to drink more than one.


Fill a pint glass with ice. Fill halfway with Dirty Mayor cider. Add a splash each of  Malvados apple brandy and elderflower rum. Top with lemon soda and two or three drops of citrus bitters. Garnish with lemon (peel and wheel) and serve.
