Spring is finally here and what better way to cool off and stay refreshed than with a spring spritzer cocktail.

A spritzer can be made with almost any liquor and a variety of ingredients. It’s always topped with an effervescent beverage such as, sparkling water, club soda, lemon lime soda, or seltzer water.  For this recipe I used strawberries because they’ve always reminded me of spring and I used the same red berry gin from this previous post.



2 oz  Seagram’s Red Berry Twisted Gin

7-10 Strawberries

1/2 oz Grenadine

2 oz lemon lime soda (sprite)


Muddle 5-6 strawberries in a cocktail shaker.

Add gin, grenadine, and shake well.

Pour mix over ice making sure to strain the mix and catch any loose strawberry pulp.

Add 2 oz soda,  cut additional strawberries in half and add for garnish
