Vest-Pocket Vocabulary

Refo’cillate, v. to strengthen by refreshment.

Word in the Wild: After a long bike ride taken at the zenith of the summer’s heat, Laura and Heather went to the pub, where they ordered pints of ale to refocillate their spirits.

This is the perfect word for a perfect summer’s day. I think I’ll head out to the balcony for a little refocillating now—cheers!
