Refreshing Beverage?

It has been HOT in Long Beach.

I feel ridiculous saying that having spent four years in Phoenix, but we have no air conditioning in my house. When the temperatures get over 85, we bake. Refreshing adult beverages are all we have to get us through August and the Strawberry Spritzer is bubbly, summery and delicious without being too sweet.

Carol made jam last week and had some delightful leftover strawberry juice/syrup. She says to make some of your own, put a pint of strawberries, a sprinkle of sugar and a half cup of water on the stove. Bring to a boil, then allow to simmer for 30 minutes or so. Strain the juice into a jar.

Pour your favorite champagne over ice and add a splash of the strawberry juice.

Garnish with a mermaid.

Sit in front of the fan. Dream of foggy January days.

These look amazing! And our a/c is not cutting it in this 100 degree heat, so I have a good excuse to make 'em too. :)
