The 80s Are Back, But Not Boring With This Cucumber Mint White Wine Spritzer Recipe

A white wine spritzer: The height of 1980s sophistication. Whether it was Dallas or Falcon Crest, the chicest of the chic let down their sprayed hair onto well-padded shoulders with a spritzer. And did that make an impression on me. Alas, I learned the truth when I came of drinking age: white wine spritzers are kind of boring. So we made them amazing. Mine are so dangerously delicious you might let someone talk you into getting a perm.
