Strawberry Mint Spritzer

Hi guys hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday. Yesterday I didn’t post anything to the blog, it was one of those days. I was in the kitchen trying to make a vegan soda bread. It was a complete disaster I ended up with a brick instead of a fresh baked loaf. I guess I’ll just keep trying until I get it right.

The sun is shining, it’s very hot and muggy out that’s the reason for this strawberry mint spritzer. It’s so refreshing on a hot day. It’s not a sweet drink, I didn’t want to add sugar to this strawberry spritzer, so for you guys that like sweetness you can add 1-2 tablespoon of agave to the pureed strawberries. It’s a delicious spritzer that can be served at picnics and BBQ’s. For those parties with friends rum or vodka can be added to it for a alcoholic drink.

These fun little fruit filled ice cubes are a great addition to any drink as the ice melt lime and strawberries into your drink. I added 4 strawberries and 3 lime ice cubes to my jug. The rest I saved for a later date.

In the bottom of the glass you need to add your strawberry puree before pouring your drink.

As I said this is not a sweet drink due to the grapefruit juice that I mixed with the Perrier water. The strawberries do add some sweetness to the drink.
