Last weekend Trevor, Teddy, and I took a much needed mini vacation to a lake in Northern Wisconsin. We didn’t do much other than eat, drink, relax, eat way too much, relax, and watch Teddy jump off the dock into the water at least 5,000 times <– freaking adorable.
The only thing missing? This Peach Lemonade Spritzer, of course!
You guys. This Peach Lemonade Spritzer Recipe is SO easy, SO yummy, and is going to be your new go-to spring cocktail, because this, is spring in a glass.
Full of fresh peaches, tart lemons, vodka, earthy basil, and crisp white wine spritzer, I just know you’re gonna flip for this drink.
PS – Make this on Monday for your Memorial Day BBQ. It makes a TON, so it’s perfect for a party!
Trevor has always loved the idea of being a bartender. I tell him he’s crazy, because I’ve worked as a waitress, and you guys, it’s HARD.
I get it though, making good cocktails is fun, but for me, I’d much rather make them in the comfort of my own home, which is why I LOVE posts like today’s Peach Lemonade Spritzer Recipe.
I have so much fun creating and “taste testing” 😉 cocktails.
Today’s recipe inspiration came from the Barefoot Refresh Crisp White Spritzer Can which features flavors like pear, lemon-lime, and apple and is full of Chenin Blanc and Riesling.
First of all, it tastes ridiculously delicious, but helloooo, can we also talk about how adorable these little cans are?! I ♡ these.
The spritzer is the final touch that takes this Peach Lemonade Spritzer over the top, but let’s back it up for a second, and talk about the first step.
Step #1: The Peach Simple Syrup
You all know I’m obsessed with fruit infused simple syrup –> Blueberry Peach Mojito anyone?
But no worries, because it’s really simple and only takes three ingredients: sugar, water, and fresh peaches.
Combine the above ingredients into a saucepan, bring to a boil, let it steep, and strain out the fruit! What’s left is ultra peachy and delicious simple syrup.
Step #2 The Lemonade
Combine that ahhhhmazing simple syrup with freshly squeezed lemon juice, water, and peach vodka and give it a stir.
Step #3 Serve it up!
Take your favorite glass and muddle a few basil leaves in the bottom. Sounds weird, right? Basil? In a drink? Trust me. It’s going to change your life.
Then add in ice. Fill the glass halfway with the peach lemonade and then top it off with the Barefoot Refresh Crisp White Spritzer Can.
If you’re feeling reeeeeeal fancy, you could go ahead and add a few extra slices of peach to make it pretty. 🙂
Now all that’s left to do is sit back, relax, and sip the most amazing lemonade.
This Peach Lemonade Spritzer is subtly sweet thanks to the peach simple syrup, ultra, um, peachy from the vodka 😉 , earthy from the basil, and so crazy crisp and refreshing thanks to the spritzer.
It’s definitely one of those drinks that makes you go
Cheers and HAPPY FRIDAY!
