If you've missed my post on the Strawberry tour at Tanaka Farms. Click here to check it out. So, with all the sweet and juice strawberries that we'd picked, I have created a few wonderful strawberry recipes for you, just in time for the strawberry season and Mother's Day celebration. This Strawberry and Lime Sparkle is perfect to serve at brunch, parties or gatherings.
I'm really blessed to have the most wonderful Mother and Mother-In-Law in the whole wide world. They have the kindest and most generous hearts, truly, they are my role models. They are the most beautiful women I've ever known, both inside and out. Whenever I need someone to talk to or need advises, they're always there for me. I can't say enough great things about them, and no words can describe how grateful I am to have them in my life. So, to my Mother and Mother-In-Law, "thank you, for being the wonderful Mothers in my life and I love you!"
So, on this Mother's Day weekend, share something special with the special Mothers in your life. Prepare this elegant and beautiful drink is a great way to start any celebration. This Strawberry and Lime Sparkle couldn't be any easier to prepare. It’s such a refreshing way to stay hydrated and crunch the thirst as the weather gets warmer and warmer each day.
Let me show you how to prepare this Strawberry and Lime Sparkle. It’s so simple to make it’ll be ready in just 5 minutes. First, muddle the mint leaves with a wooden spoon in a large pitcher.
Then, add in some fresh lime juice.
Next step, add the agave. You can use other sweetener but I love the slightly floral aroma from the agave and it blends in and dissolves perfectly with the rest of the ingredients.
Then, add in the diced strawberries and give it a quick stir.
Last but not least, pour in some chilled club soda, tonic water, or sparkling mineral water. Then enjoy the hot weather with this chilled and refreshing drink on hand.
This Strawberry and Lime Sparkle is elegant enough for parties and gatherings, yet casual and easy to prepare for any afternoon that you want a chilled drink to enjoy. It’ll wash away the tiresome from a long day of work as you sip.
I love the sparkles and bubbles from the sparking water.
What is your favorite Spring/Summer time drink? Do you like the bubbly like I do? I drink it so often that I think it’s about time to invest in one of those bubbly machine maker. If you have one, please let me know if you like it. I would love your feedback and opinions.
So, how are you going to celebrate Mother's Day? Share your plans, or a recipe in the comment. Last but not least, I want to wish all the Mothers, Grandmothers, Mother-In-Laws and all Mother-To-Be a wonderful and meaningful Mother's Day! Enjoy your special day!
