Hello! I am back with this week’s cocktail! I love strawberries and I love strawberry spritzer!
Mixing that love with the alcohol of the month and taa-daa, we have the cocktail! This is mostly vodka and white wine cocktail but I love to call it with its native flavour.
Vodka and White Wine Cocktail
When I hear vodka and white wine cocktails, I instantly think of sangrias. But I like sangria made with red wine and a generous amount of spiced rum! So, I found a better alternative to white wine sangria – strawberry spritzer.
94% of American households consume strawberries, so it’s a pantry item and you can make it at home – ANYTIME!
I use a muddler to crush my strawberries, you can coarsely grind it, strain and use it!
I love chardonnay but for this particular cocktail, I am using Sauvignon Blanc. This is one of the best summer cocktails and I suggest this for a poolside summer afternoon! I love to sip it on my patio while I enjoy my favourite books.
Don’t mix drinking with driving! Enjoy
