This four ingredient St. Germain Spritzer cocktail takes two minutes to whip up. It’s the perfect refreshing alcoholic drink for a spring or summer evening.
Before I jump into talking about this beyond simple cocktail, I’m excited to tell you all about the giveaway I am currently hosting over on my instagram right now! I’m not going to lie, between finishing up the book, working full time at my indie rock job, pushing the newest issue of Driftless Magazine into the world, and doing freelance work, our evening meals have really started to suffer. Sure, it’s great when I have to recipe develop tacos or lasagna but all too often I’m working on a drink recipe or dessert and those things end up being our dinner. So when Sun Basket sent me one of their weekly meal boxes to try out, I was so excited to have an excuse to set some time aside and make dinner again. Not only did it give me an excuse to get back into the kitchen for more than just work but the meals were delicious and ridiculously easy.
I’ve had a lot of reservations with meal services in the past but Sun Basket has the perfect solutions for them all. Meal services always felt so wasteful with all the individual packaging of every ingredient but Sun Basket sends you a return label to send back all the packaging for them to reuse or recycle. I also hated the idea of a meal plan because of my meat-free dietary restrictions but they’ve covered that as well; they gave you the option to choose between vegetarian, gluten-free, and paleo recipes! And last but not least, I’m kind of a food snob and insist on all of my vegetables being organic so I was thrilled to find out their ingredients are certified organic! Yup, $11.49 for an organic meal that is delivered right to your door and can be whipped up in less than an hour. Dreamy, right?
Now, onto the best part! I am currently giving away one week of Sun Basket meals (3 meals for 2, worth $68.94) over on my instagram! All you have to do it hop on over and tag someone you think would appreciate Sun Basket (whether it’s someone who never has enough time in their day or appreciates a delicious organic meal or has dietary restrictions or just loves to cook and try new recipes). Hop on over there NOW because the contest ends on Sunday at midnight (EST time)! Also, if you know for sure you want to try out Sun Basket, you can use this link to get $30 off your first order! How can you resist with a deal like that?
Now onto this drink recipe! This is one of those recipes where I was trying to relax at the end of a day (this is a new development, by the way. My workaholic self is trying to slow down and enjoy a few silent moments a day) so I made myself this cocktail with ingredients we had on hand to enjoy with a novel on the porch. As I was sipping it, I was like ‘this is so good and looks so beautiful. I want to take a picture of it’. Fast forward 40 minutes later and I’m back to work, snapping pictures and writing down recipes (so much for that relaxing thing I’ve been working on, right?).
This cocktail is beyond simple but that is what I really enjoy about it. It’s four ingredients. I can be whipped up in under five minutes. And it’s refreshing and light enough for the warming weather but boozy enough to keep you warm once the sun sets.
