Strawberry Basil Lemonade Spritzer Recipe

Happy happy Wednesday! We’re half way through the week and if that’s not reason to celebrate, I don’t know what is! I’m celebrating with a nice glass of Sauvignon Blanc (from New Zealand), but when I’m not drinking wine, I love sweet drinks. Think juices and lemonades!

Perrier Spritzer Recipe

This lemonade recipe is a twist on your typical strawberry lemonade. It’s perfect for hot summer nights (and afternoons) and just the right amount of refreshing for when I get home from a long day at work! Don’t let the green leaves scare you off–basil is what takes this strawberry lemonade to the next level. Bonus points: it’s SUPER easy to make and takes no time at all.

Typically when I make this recipe, I leave out any sort of bubbly factor. However, this time, I added a crisp, sparkling Strawberry Perrier. Y’all. Game changer. I thought it was refreshing before, but now. This will be my drink of choice for summers to come.

You can even make it with vodka if you’re feeling a little crazy–which is also equally refreshing and of course fun!
