raspberry spritzer

With Summer around the corner and the weekend upon us, I thought I’d share my newest beverage craze: Raspberry Spritzers! If you love soda but hate the sugar, THIS is where it’s at! I LOVE soda, unfortunately, but this raspberry spritzer recipe has completely been a game-changer for me. It gives that bite that I like but without all of that extra sugar and heavy syrup that sodas have. Caution: It’s equally addicting!

Luckily, it’s also low calorie and low carb, so it’s waistline-friendly AND it only takes a few moments to make. Which as a busy, exhausted mom of 3, is a must! I’m telling ya’ll… **chef’s kiss**

If you’re new here, just know that I always like to keep it super simple and easy. It’s a lifestyle at this point.

For that extra *bite* I like to refrigerate the sparkling water in addition to ice.

P.S. I just have to share a photo of the absolute behemoth of a strawberry I found in a pack I bought from Walmart! The photos don’t do it justice.

I joked with my hubby about it being one of those genetically modified foods haha!

Well…I hope it was only a joke… 🙂
