Vodka Spritzer Recipe
You think the Vodka Spritzer is boring and dull? Not round here. We've got the secret to a flavourful bev that remains low cal and refreshing. The trick to this drink is letting it marinate! Just place the vodka, simple syrup, and cranberry juice in a pitcher with sliced lemons and strawberries. Give it just 30 minutes, and it infuses the berries and tangy lemon right into the drink. Well, you could serve this vodka spritzer as is and it would taste pretty good anyway. But at The Bottle Club, we're all about perfection, okay?
When it comes to choosing a vodka for your vodka spritzer recipe, feel free to stray from regular vodka and find your favourite flavour for a fruity spin on this classic.
