Tomorrow! Tomorrow! It’s Love Day tomorrow! Yes, I do break into song just for the fun of it, but Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to sing and celebrate. I am very thankful to have a wonderful husband who is equally in love with me as I am with him. He has supported me, believed in me, and has taught me what unconditional love can look like in human form – even when I don’t feel very lovey or lovely. We’re approaching our 10-year wedding anniversary in a month, and I can say I understand the “cherished” part. I Love You, Tony!
So I saw this pin on Pinterest (which is how I start WAY too many of my conversations), and it seemed like the perfect Valentine’s drink. Only three ingredients. Just measure chilled ingredients, stir, and drink. That’s almost as easy as the “wash, rinse, repeat” directions on my shampoo bottle, and much tastier. I don’t recommend drinking shampoo, no matter what it smells like.
While I can see the simple beauty of only 3 ingredients, I think this picture from Nazra’s blog post (Make it, Bake it, Create it), with its beautiful pitcher, would have been a much better choice.
Nazra used Sprite Zero. I don’t do diet soda, so I went with regular Sprite.
Mix equal parts Moscato and Sprite in a pitcher. . .
. . . and stir with frozen raspberries.
It’s just that easy. Salud – you’re welcome. The frozen raspberries gave a lovely blush color to the spritzer. If you really want to go for
The frozen raspberries gave a lovely blush color to the spritzer. If you really want to go for a Valentine’s Day look, make this the day before and chill in the fridge overnight. The raspberries will lose much of their color, but the spritzer will be a pretty pink.
Overall Rating: 5 Pins
Accuracy: Nazra mentioned how the crispness of the Sprite would compliment the Moscato. She was right. Even my manly husband liked it.
Difficulty: With only three ingredients and nothing to do but stir, this is about as simple as you can get.
Time: Even if you bought the beverages at room temperature, it wouldn’t take long to chill them in the freezer or fridge.
Cost: The most expensive ingredient was the Moscato, which was between $5-$6.
Practicality: This makes a great party drink, whether entertaining a crowd or an intimate party for two.
