Summer Fruit Spritzers - Summer fresh berries and watermelon come together in a fabulous summer drink for all to enjoy! Perfect for all get togethers and summer parties.
August in Oklahoma is blazin' hot! Oh my word, I am melting and complaining a lot! So today I've got a beat the heat beverage that is perfect for everyone!
You are more likely to find me drinking the kiddy party punch than the cocktails at most parties because I just can't handle the alcohol. I'm not much fun at all. Anyway, I always like to make sure there are fun drink options for everyone not just cool cocktails.
I used summer fresh strawberries and our homegrown watermelon to make a sweet syrup that I combined with a ginger ale for a simple and refreshing spritzer. Of course if you are looking for a sweet summer cocktail a splash of tequila or rum would fit right in. Super easy and super delicious, you can't beat that!
