It’s strawberry season in Florida and I am loving it. I have been posting quite a few strawberry photos recently on Instagram, and can’t wait to get in the fields to pick. Until then, I decided to create a refreshing drink, perfect for any occasion – Strawberry Lemonade Spritzer.
Most people associate spritzers with being an alcoholic drink, but my mocktail is just as good. Sweet strawberries blended with lemon-lime soda are mixed with pink lemonade concentrate and more lemon-lime soda. Garnish with some fresh mint, strawberries and a cute straw, and you are ready to party!
I love being surprised with little gifts and treats, so I surprised my Sister for National Compliment Day. In addition to enjoying these Strawberry Lemonade Spritzers with her, we also indulged in some Hand-Dipped Champagne Strawberries and Cake Truffles, compliments of Shari’s Berries. She works really hard as a Physician Assistant, and nothing says “I love you” like some chocolate covered strawberries. I know these definitely brightened her day.
Go ahead and compliment someone today. Say or do something nice to someone – you never know how much they might need it. Hope you have a great day and enjoy a Strawberry Lemonade Spritzer!
