Thirsty Thursday: Getting Busy Drinking With IZZE

One of my favorite "sodas" these days is IZZE sparkling juice.  It's natural.  It's fizzy.  It's refreshing.  So, as this Thirsty Thursday rolled around, I got to thinking that IZZE would make a great base for summer cocktails.  I did some surfing on the net and found The Bachelor Guy, which features some great options, shown below. I tried the “Get B’IZZE” because I’m a particular fan of IZZE Sparkling Grapefruit. I didn’t have any Silver Rum on hand, so I used Pusser’s Rum (a story for another day) and the result was delicious!  Can’t wait to try the rest of these concoctions!  Already thinking about creating some new ones of my own, too.  Cheers!
