We are all up in this hizzie getting ready to support #TeamUSA and I am breaking out the most amazing Patriotic Vodka Lemonade Spritzer so I can party in delicious style!
You heard it here first, folks.
I’ve always been a fan of the Olympics, especially the summer ones, because I am all about those amazing gymnastics.
What is your favorite sport at the Summer Olympics?? Will you be watching with bated breath for Team USA to take the gold?? Cause I know I will be!
And zomg, I am so excited to watch it with the girls this year, because they are finally old enough to really get into it! Maybe not so much Charli, since she’s only three, but Vivi, Laney, and Afton are anxious to see what all the buzz about. We’ll definitely be snacking on some strawberry mango salsa as we enjoy our favorite sports and favorite athletes. The girls will have their lemonade and I will be having my fancy fun adult version! It’s a party!
When this bottle of Smirnoff vodka landed in my hands, I was so thrilled. I mean, hello, patriotic with the red, white, and blue, but also, the FLAVORS. Look at that. Cherry. Citrus. Blue Raspberry. All the things that are perfect for a vodka lemonade spritzer.
Also, it is super fun filling it up with bright red cherries and strawberries, big blueberries, and crisp little apple stars that I punched out of Granny Smith apples. Those stars win at life.
For the record, I used this tool to make the stars. I really like making little stars, ha ha ha, like I did with this amazing apple cobbler. It just adds a fun touch you wouldn’t normally get with diced fruit.
What really makes this drink fun, besides the delicious vodka, of course, is the black cherry seltzer (similar). It adds a gentle, bubbly touch, while boosting the yummy cherry flavor. Like a cherry limeade. But on steroids. Also, lemonade. Cause it’s a vodka lemonade spritzer.
Are you ready for the Olympics to begin? Get patriotic with me, and please enjoy responsibly!
