Strawberry Lavender Spritzer - Weekend Recipe
Before the Strawberries are all gone you just have to try this wine spritzer. Perfect in a punch bowl at your garden party. I am making a non-alcoholic version to serve at the Villa Park Gardenwalk next Weekend!
Strawberry - Lavender Wine Spritzer
• 1/4 cup orange juice
• 1 cup fresh strawberries
• 1 tablespoon fresh lavender buds
• 3 cups white wine (or one 750 ml bottle)
• 4 cups club soda or seltzer water
• 4 to 6 fresh lavender sprigs
• 4 to 6 fresh strawberries
In a blender or food processor, blend the orange juice, 1 cup of strawberries, and lavender flowers.
Transfer to a jug or bowl. Pour wine over the blended mixture and allow to steep for 30 minutes; then strain into a punch bowl, discarding solids. To serve, fill a wineglass half full with flavored wine and top with mineral water. Garnish with a sprig of lavender and a strawberry.
For a non-alcoholic version use white grape juice or apple juice,instead of wine.
