Strawberry Mint Spritzer
I’ve been getting lots of questions lately about how/where alcohol fits into a healthy lifestyle so I thought I would re-post this fabulously clean cocktail recipe. It’s one of my absolute favorites!! Clean, good quality alcohol is ok in moderation and shouldn’t sabotage your weight loss efforts. The important thing is to keep your mixers clean and sugar free!
What better way to kick off a warm spring weekend than with a fabulous cocktail recipe?! If you’re trying to lay off the hooch, the second version is sans alcohol.
For the alcoholic version you’ll need:
- 1 bottle Sake – any kind will do
- 1 bottle Dry Champagne
- 1 pint strawberries
- 6 meyer lemons (or 3-4 regular lemons)
- 3-4 springs of mint
- Vanilla Stevia to taste
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!!
If you want to make an alcohol free version, simply substitute sparkling mineral water for the sake and champagne. It’s just as 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.
