Strawberry Mint Spritzer

Strawberry Mint Spritzer

What better way to kick off your weekend than with a fabulous cocktail recipe?! If you’re trying to lay off the hooch, the second version is sans alcohol.

Strawberry Mint Spritzer

For the alcoholic version you’ll need:

  • 1 bottle Sake – any kind will do
  • 1 bottle Champagne
  • 1 pint strawberries
  • 6 meyer lemons
  • 3-4 springs of mint
  • Vanilla Stevia

Slice your strawberries into vertical slivers, tear mint leaves roughly, and add both to a large pitcher. Squeeze the juice of 6 meyer lemons and gently muddle (muddle = mash) the ingredients using a wooden spoon. Add equal parts sake & champagne, and lots of ice.  Squeeze a dropper full of vanilla stevia into each glass before serving.  Voila, you’re done!!

I’m not drinking this month so I opted for an alcohol free version by simply substituting sparkling mineral water for the sake and champagne.  It’s absolutely delicious and will make you feel like a million bucks every time you take a sip!   This recipe is great for entertaining too – your guests will be raving about it for weeks!!

If you’re looking for a great tasting Stevia that actually tastes like sugar and not like aspartame, NuNaturals is the BEST!! I always order my mine through iherb.com they have NuNaturals stevia in liquid, powder, packets and an assortment of flavors along with a wide variety of other health & beauty products and supplements. Feel free to use my discount code WAG472 to get $5 off your first order 🙂

Enjoy your weekend darlings!

  1. Do you have any suggestions for a sweetener that can be used in place of the stevia. We don’t use artificial sweeteners, but only regularly use honey, raw sugar, and maple syrup. Oh, and I think I have some Agave in my pantry. Would any of these work? Hypothetically?

    Thanks a bunch. I recently came across your website, and I’ve been loving all the recipes you’ve posted!

    1. Jillian, You can use any sweetener you like! I use stevia because the sugar (even natural sugars) is actually what feeds yeast in the body. If you are fine with honey or agave I’m sure any of my cocktails would taste great using them instead. But if you’re looking for a cleaner, healthier version stick to the stevia!

  2. Thanks, Linda. We do just fine with honey/agave, so I’ll give ’em a try. I’m planning to serve this at Easter brunch on Sunday. Virgin, unfortunately. (Pregnancy be damned!)

    1. It’s in the post. “I’m not drinking this month so I opted for an alcohol free version by simply substituting sparkling mineral water for the sake and champagne. It’s absolutely delicious and will make you feel like a million bucks every time you take a sip! “

  3. Hey, I’m 16, so of course its illegal for me to drink. I was wondering what I could use to replace the Sake and Champagne?

    1. Hi Hailey,

      You’ll see in the post that it says “I’m not drinking this month so I opted for an alcohol free version by simply substituting sparkling mineral water for the sake and champagne. It’s absolutely delicious and will make you feel like a million bucks every time you take a sip!”

      Enjoy!

  4. My friends and I enjoyed this tonight when we made sushi for dinner. This cocktail is AMAZING! We all raved and raved over it. I never would have thought to mix sake with champagne, but all of it together is just magic. Thanks for the recipe!
