We are certainly enjoying these late summer evenings. Sitting by the fire, the girls doing cartwheels in the yard, I feel pretty lucky right now. I want to take a mental picture of this moment to look back on when we are in the deep part of winter. The actual pictures I took? My cocktail of course. (Thankfully I have thousands of pictures of my girls.)
This night I made a Summer Rosé Spritzer. If you like Rosé or flavored seltzer water, or just prefer a drink that is not too sweet, then this is the cocktail for you! Bubbly and refreshing, it’s a perfect drink to sit back and relax with all summer long.
Summer Rosé Spritzer Recipe – makes 2 servings
- 6 oz. of your favorite Rosé – I used one can of Simpler Wines Rosé from Trader Joes. I love that the cans offer me a perfect portion.
- 1 can of your favorite flavored seltzer water. I used a berry flavor.
- 3 oz. Royal Rose Organic Simple Syrup or any simple syrup you have on hand. Choose a flavor that will complement the seltzer flavor you chose.
- Optional: Fruit of your choice
This is such an easy recipe. If you are using fruit, I used strawberries, chop and add them to the bottom of two glasses. Muddle/mash the fruit in the bottom of the glass. Next, fill the glass roughly 1/2 to 2/3 full with ice. Pour 3 oz. of the Rosé, half the can of seltzer water and 1.5 oz of simple syrup into each glass. Stir gently with a spoon and enjoy!
