Tart & Sweet Cran-Strawberry Spritzer Recipe Is the Perfect Way to Cool Off

Lightly mashing the strawberries releases their garden-fresh flavor into our sparkling sip

When I think of summer beverages, spritzers immediately come to mind. Mocktails or cocktails, these drinks are typically fruity and fizzy; you can’t go wrong with them. While drinking water is essential, especially during these hotter months, sometimes I crave something with a little more flavor. That’s why I love this Cran-Strawberry Spritzer recipe.

Not only does this taste delicious, but it is also super easy to mix. We use strawberries and lemon as our main fruits for a perfectly sweet and tart combination. In addition, this beverage is non-alcoholic and uses juice, sparkling water, and fruit. However, if you want to make it more adult-friendly, add prosecco or champagne to get that sparkling sensation. Ensure you have a pitcher and ice ready to keep it cold, and you’re ready to sip this spritzer all summer long!
