Strawberry Mint Spritzer

Strawberry Mint Spritzer

 

I’m a huge fan of H20. I really don’t drink much else. But even I have to admit that as good as water is, sometimes you need something a little more to quench your thirst. I found a really yummy recipe on Guiding Stars and I wanted to share the love! This Strawberry Mint Spritzer is the perfect mix of sweet, tart and fizz! Enjoy!
