I dare you--DARE YOU I say!--to find a drink as light, refreshing and downright summer-y as this one. Can't be done. I mean, I don't throw this term around lightly, but it's damn near whimsical.
And don't even get me started on how much vitamin C is in this drink.
Nantucket is a charming little island full of rich folks who wear faded red pants and (at least in my imagination) sip drinks like this all summer. So I figured that's an excellent name for this concoction.
There's even a famous limerick about Nantucket that I'll get to work on revising to include a reference to this drink. Stay tuned...
