[Thirsty Thursday] Strawberry Lime Spritzer

Thanks to grocery stores that sell local produce instead of imported, I was able to score a carton of the best strawberries of my life.  Ripe strawberries taste like candy and could stop even the most stubborn sweet tooth dead in its tracks.  Man these were good!

Naturally I had to corrupt them with vodka.  I mean, I did go to FSU after all.

    I love strawberries and lime. There's a pick your own strawberry farm here in town. A friend and I found it when we were lost, we rolled down the window to ask for directions, and the most yummlicious smell hit us like a happy, happy brick wall.

  21. the lime la croix is fizzy so you wouldn't even need to buy club soda =) Perrier makes a really yummy natural one too without weird additives or fake sugars [the la croix is natural too!]

    This looks amazing! This may be my favorite Spring drink. 

    ReplyDelete
  29. I can't really say that I have a favorite spring beverage.....I usually stick with wine or beer.  I do love  a good peach bellini every so often :)  I am not a real "sweet drink" type of person, I think this one would be perfect!!

    Oh and virgin only if I have to, like when I was pregnant :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm the same way! Though sub a screwdriver for the peach bellini and we're good to go =) This drink is more tart and fizzy with the only sweetness coming from the berries you toss in the glass so hopefully you'd love it too! xoxo Happy Friday Helen!
