At one point this summer, a friend discovered a new beverage — Truly. Marketed as “a gluten-free spiked sparkling water,” Truly Spiked & Sparlking does not contain any liquor or spirits; the alcohol comes from fermented cane sugar and a hint of fruit. Sitting by the lake or after a long hike, I found Truly — served over ice or straight out of the bottle, in one of any of the flavors offered (Colima Lime, Grapefruit & Polemo, Sicilian Blood Orange, Lemon & Yuzu), to refreshing, light and with just the right amount of kick. Now, the makers of Truly are finding ways to bring this seemingly summertime sipper into the holiday season; a way to keep things a little lighter at this time of year where hearty food and heavy drinks seem to take center stage. For Thanksgiving, try a Pom-Apple Fizz, for example. While it might not replace a bold wine with your holiday feast, I can see myself day-drinking one of these while watching football on the couch. In fact, I think I will.
