Lemon Basil Mint Spritzer
What non-alcoholic drink do you usually serve to your family and friends for summer barbecues and parties? If you usually have canned soda or iced tea ready for your guests, why not try this refreshing Lemon Basil Mint Spritzer the next time?
This refreshing spritzer is full of fantastic flavors, including lemon, fresh herbs, and ginger. It’s bright fruity flavor pairs perfectly with the herbs and freshly grated ginger for a delicious combination. One taste and this is sure to become your favorite drink to serve!
Yes, it’s a non-alcoholic drink because that’s how we do things here in our house! Besides, it’s best to serve non-alcoholic drinks when it’s hot outside. This is a refreshing drink that will be sure to help cool you off on a really hot day.
Mason Jar Glasses
I served these drinks in my favorite mason jars used as glasses. How fun are these for a party? I have a huge collection of antique mason jars and blue Ball jars. I also have a few mason jar glasses with handles that are fun to use when company comes over.
Feel free to add your favorite seltzer in place of the sparkling water too. I think sliced limes would be great with this drink as well as the lemon. And even thinly sliced cucumber! Experiment with the flavors and have fun this summer!
