Spiked lemonade is my cocktail kryptonite: if it’s on the menu, there’s a 100% chance I’m going to order it. It’s the type of summery treat I never think to make at home – but that’s where DIY recipes come in. Who better to teach us about cocktails than a Real Housewife? Brandi Glanville, former Housewife of Beverly Hills, has (why not?) branched out into the wine biz – and her Unfiltered Blonde chardonnay makes for a great spritzer. Perfect for your next brunch, bridal shower, or for throwing in someone’s face.
