Strawberry Mint Spritzer


Ingredients  Strawberry Spritzer
6 fresh mint leaves
1 pound strawberries (about 2 cups)
1/2 cup sugar
Grated zest of 1 medium lime (about 1 teaspoon)
2 tablespoons lime juice (1 to 2 medium limes)
4 cups club soda, sparkling water, or seltzer

6 lime wedges (optional)
6 mint sprigs (optional)





Serves 6; 1 cup per serving
Ideal as a refreshing spritzer for brunch or on a hot summer day, this sparkling drink will be like a smoothie if you vary the proportion of strawberry mixture and sparkling water. Chop mint leaves into very small pieces. Stem and halve strawberries. Put in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Add sugar, lime zest, lime juice, and chopped mint leaves; process until blended.

To serve, pour 1/3 cup strawberry mixture and 2/3 cup club soda into each glass; add ice and stir. Garnish with a lime wedge and mint sprig.
