Summer is finally -- FINALLY -- here, which means patio weather has arrived, which means it's time to start enjoying delicious light, fruity, summery cocktails before it's too late!

Just in time to help us celebrate the warm weather, Belvedere Vodka ($47) has unveiled its ‘Be Natural’ manifesto and launched its brand new Belvedere Spritz Collection. And let us tell you: It's delicious.

The idea is to "keep it simple, real and clear", just like the vodka itself, which is made using a 600-year-old Polish tradition that only requires two ingredients: Dankowskie rye and artesian water. Nothing more, nothing less.  

The Spritz Collection includes 10 natural, refreshing cocktails that are full of fruity flavor, low in sugar  -- YES!!! -- and super easy to create i.e. everything you could ask for from a cocktail your party guests are sure to fall in love with.

Without further ado, we give you Belvedere's classic Spritz recipe. One sip and it's become our new cocktail obsession.
