The Hood strawberries are in season and The Little has been plowing through them like a steam roller over hot asphalt. My husband seriously berated the heck out of me for buying, dare I say it, California strawberries, but hello, they were on sale. They were rather sad looking things and I only bought because I was thinking of cooking them. Then it got hot as heck in Portland, like over 80 degrees and all I wanted was something fun and cool to drink.
This strawberry spritzer recipe is so simple and you can also make it with any other berries that you love. A mango blueberry one sound fun and so does a peach raspberry one. If you don’t want to add sweetener use really ripe juicy berries and you can keep this completely sugar-free.
- 24 ripe strawberries hulled
- 2 1/2 cups mineral water
- B grade maple syrup
Place all the strawberries and mineral water in your blender and whiz until the strawberries are completely disintegrated, roughly 2 minutes.
Taste and add maple syrup to taste.
