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!
