Strongbow Strawberry Spritz

This summery cocktail looks impressive but is easy enough for anyone to make

Nothing says that summer is here quite like a refreshing, fruity, and herbaceous cocktail. Luckily for you, this beautiful strawberry spritz is all three of those things.

This recipe was created by Sam Talbot on behalf of Strongbow Hard Apple Cider.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 Cup crushed ice
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon coconut sugar, super fine (can substitute with 1/2 ounce simple syrup)
  • 12 fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 splashes of mint bitters
  • 1/2 Teaspoon rose water
  • 2 strawberries, roughly chopped
  • 6 Ounces hard cider, preferably Strongbow Orange Blossom
  • 1 splash of club soda
  • 1 slice orange

Directions

In a 10 ounce glass (such as Collins or highball), stir together lime juice and coconut sugar until sugar dissolves.

Add 1/4 cup crushed ice. Rub the cilantro leaves all over the rim of the glass, hand tear the cilantro and add to glass. Gently stir for about 5 seconds. Add the bitters, rose water, strawberries, cider, club soda, and remaining crushed ice. Gently stir for 5 seconds.

Right before serving, zest fresh orange over the top of the cocktail and garnish with orange slice.
