This Strawberry Lime Popsicle Spritzer recipe was developed in partnership with Dasani and Mirum. All opinions and recipes are strictly my own! #RaiseaGlasstoSummerMocktails
Okay, so I've officially found my new favorite mocktail. I mean, you could totally jazz it up if you want, but hello, I'm thoroughly in love with this Strawberry Lime Popsicle Spritzer just as it is. Super cold, lightly sweet, and incredibly refreshing. Also, it's kind of beautiful. There's only three ingredients and I feel confident that anyone who likes the combo of strawberry and lime will appreciate this one. Pretty sure (totally sure) this will be the signature drink at my birthday summer barbecue next weekend. Mmmmmmm
I'm such a huge fan of recipes that look good enough to serve in a five star restaurant, but are simple to prepare at home. This is definitely one of those. You could even put your kids to work for you filling up the glasses while you chop fruit. Free labor, yay!
You could use larger strawberry pieces, or even whole strawberries if you wanted, but I thought it would be nice if it were easy to get bits of strawberry as you drank. And I love the way they look floating on top. We chose a lime flavored seltzer, but I bet berry on berry would be a delicious combination too!
The addition of a popsicle rather than ice is great because it just continues to contribute flavor as it melts and keeps you (and the drink!) cool while you're enjoying time outdoors with family and friends. Also (I know, I know, I keep saying this), it looks really nice. The drink is perfect for those who are limiting sugar intake too as seltzer is unsweetened and you can choose (or make!) the popsicle that fits best with your diet. I'm a big fan of the all fruit type with very little sugar. My kids on the other hand... well, they're not the ones grocery shopping. Hah!
