Strawberry Lemonade Spritzer

Cal Giant | March 29, 2016

Ryan and I have been married for eight months (time flies!), and I still reminisce all the time about our wedding night. From the amazing live band that played well past midnight, to the homemade wood fired pizzas, it was truly magical.

And now that I’m starting to see the hashtag #weddingwednesday pop up on Instagram every week, it puts me back in wedding mode, even though I’m not planning another wedding :) I love staying on top of the new wedding trends, from the dresses to the flowers to the cocktails.

Speaking of cocktails, one of the biggest on-going wedding trends is to have his and hers cocktails during the wedding reception. But since a lot of couples opt to just have wine and beer (like we did), I thought it would be nice to have a champagne cocktail, one that doesn’t require hard liquor. Using our delicious strawberries, I created a strawberry lemonade spritzer, perfect for a spring or summer wedding, or a bridal shower.

Did you have a signature cocktail at your wedding? I’d love to hear!


Ingredients (serves 4)

4 cups California Giant strawberries (fresh or frozen)

2 cups champagne

One bottle of sparkling lemonade
