I love light refreshing summer drinks. Every summer we have a favorite drink that we serve at our summer parties. This year it’s The Vodka Spritzer. I am loving this drink because by simply just changing the out the fresh fruit you muddle it with you can a drink that pleases everyone.
You’ll need one shot of vodka (or two), mineral water, 1/2 a juiced lime, mint and your favorite fruit or cucumber.
We like to prepare a bar tray so our guest can mix their own drinks through out the night.
So how does one prepare The Summer Spritzer?
Simply juice half a lime (each drink takes about 1/2 a lime) and pour into a shaker. Add a few cubes of ice, mint and your favorite fruit. Using a wooden muddler, muddle the ingredients to help release the flavors. Add one or two shots of vodka and finish with the mineral water. Shake, pour over ice and garnish.
