SPARKcon revs up this weekend in Raleigh. This means that my family and I will be meandering around downtown listening to live music, watching flame throwing acrobats, cringing at skateboard tricksters, eating some street vendor fare, sipping a local brew or two, and inhaling some of the most fabulous people watching in our parts. SPARKcon is THE festival of creativity, and the whole city ignites with creative masterminds.
I’ll be celebrating the weekend’s festivities with my own SPARKy drink. I love a chance to get fired up and celebrate creative spirits (with some spirits of my own, ahem).
6 ounces Izze sparkling clementine juice
3 ounces brewed tea
3 ounces ginger vodka
Fill a tall glass with ice. Add ginger vodka and tea. Top with sparkling clementine juice and squeeze in a lemon wedge. Give it a quick stir. Sit back, sip, sigh.
Now get your SPARK on!
