#ThurstyThursday: Strawberry Spritz

Want something sweet and refreshing for your weekend drink? This is it! Happy Thursty Thursday!!

Today is Career Day and I can't wait to get home and drink one of these. The one I had last much took me to level one on my scale from 1-4. And...since I stopped after that one, I was in bed by about 8:30. These weeks are exhausting!

I also realized I suck donkey balls at taking pictures of my cocktails. I need a cocktail photography tutorial. Any good posts I can read? I need some help. Keep in mind I'm working with my cell phone here. It's about all I have in order to take "nice" pictures.

So...because I'm a slacker, and also because I'm beat to hell...without further ado...

Strawberry Spritz
2 shots vodka
1 shot coconut rum
2 tbsp. pureed strawberries
Simply Orange with pineapple juice

Slice and sugar some strawberries and let sit in the fridge for a few days. Blend strawberries together until pureed. You might need to mix some of the juice with it in order to get them to blend well. Pour shots, strawberry puree, and juice over ice. Stir. Add Sprite. Enjoy! Cheers!!

  1. Perfect for this time of year! The local strawberries are coming in here and always taste so good. Hadn't thought to drink them, though!

    1. Yup. When my MIL gave my hubby some of those I knew I had to make them into a Thursty Thursday drink.

  2. This looks like the perfect cocktail after a hard day!

    1. I've had a long hard day today. Does that mean I can go home and have a few of these? I'm ok with that!

  3. What a scrumptious cocktail! Thanks for hosting the party :)

    1. Of course!! Thanks for linking up!! We do this every Thursday. I would love to have you back!
