I’m a big fan of summer! The grilling, the warm nights, the long days, the opportunity to consume gallons of iced coffee.
I am here for it!
Last week I was in Colorado Springs for an interview with the Focus on the Family broadcast. You can see the Facebook Live we did after the interview here. On my last day in the city, my mom and I went out to brunch at Shuga’s and she ordered a coconut lime spritzer.
I immediately ordered one to-go.
This drink is summer in a cup! Fresh coconut, tart lime, bubbly sparkling water. Are you with me?!
Summer Paleo Spritzer
It’s so easy to bring together and everyone can make it to their liking. I like extra lime, some people like it extra creamy, others like it with just a hint of coconut. It’s perfect if you are hosting a party and need a non-alcoholic go-to beverage.
I use my soda stream for the sparkling water (we had to get this because my love for sparkling water was a little out of control). You can just use cans or bottles of sparkling water. Be sure not to use sparkling mineral water – it changes the taste.
Another thing I love about this drink is I always have the ingredients on hand. Perfect for people who stop over last minute!
Recipe below, like we do. BUT BEOFRE YOU GO! Announcement time ; )
