Vodka Spritzer Cocktail with Berries
We might have colder weather stick around longer than most of the country but it seems that all of a sudden it’s gone in a flash. We’re not officially in the middle of Summer and heat. Now…don’t get me wrong, I’m so not complaining. Even at our hottest the lower humidity index makes it bearable at 95 degrees but it doesn’t mean it’s not hot. And it sure doesn’t mean we won’t enjoy something as refreshing as this Vodka Spritzer Cocktail with Berries.
This is one light, cold and super refreshing cocktail. Other than some vodka and a bit of simple syrup, the other ingredients are all fruit and citrus. While I loved this cocktail I also love that I can serve it to friends who might prefer watching their calories and just as importantly to those who are maintaining a Gluten Free diet.
Some might insist that once a grain is fermented and made into a spirit that it loses it gluten characteristics. I’m not going to test that on friends I care about would rather be safe than sorry.
Potato vodka to the rescue! The potatoes used in Blue Ice Vodka come from the richest potato-growing region in North America. High-altitudes, warm days and cool nights, and light volcanic soil produce high quality potatoes with excellent taste and character.
The water in Blue Ice Vodka imparts unparalleled smoothness reflecting its origin in the Teton Mountains, one of the last few remaining pristine water sources in America.
The water gathers in the Snake River Aquifer, where it naturally filters through hundreds of feet of porous volcanic rock before reaching the 200 -foot aquifer. This is the sole water source for Blue Ice Vodka.
A nice vodka with a crisp mild bite and a really smooth characteristic if tried alone. It has a slightly sweet smell but more noticeably none of the sharp rubbing alcohol smells that some other vodkas seem to have.
Overall I really like it just a good honest vodka and perfect for this simple cocktail where it is the star with a hint of fruit and lime. The only negative I could discern was that this cocktail was so easy to drink that a warning might have to be included!
Hot summer days and a vodka spritzer are meant to be married!
My recipe makes enough for four cocktails but it’s also easily doubled I promise you are not going to stop at one.
This Vodka Spritzer with Raspberries and Blueberries is so simple, so refreshing, so summer! Cheers!
11 Summer Spritzer Cocktail Recipes
The Aperol Spritz
I love making a big pitcher of these! I just go all in: 1 cup Aperol, 2 cups Prosecco, 3 cups sparkling water or club soda!
Fill a big wine glass or goblet with ice and add the ingredients. Garnish with an orange wedge.
The Negroni Spritz
This one’s a little strong so I top it off with sparkling water.
Fill a big wine glass or goblet with ice and add the ingredients. Top with club soda to make it a little lighter on the alcohol. Garnish with an orange peel.
The Chambord Spritz
It’s like a Chambord Royale but lighter!
Fill a big wine glass or goblet with ice and add the ingredients. Top with sparkling water if you’re a lightweight. Garnish with a lemon wedge (I love how a little lemon juice cuts the sweetness) and top with a few fresh raspberries. You can also add a little lemon or lime juice.
The Haus Spritz
I have gotten very into Haus apertifs. The packaging is super chic, they’re much lower in sugar than Aperol or Campari, and they’re just that perfect mix of sophisticated and delicious.
You can either drink them in a highball glass with club soda, OR make them as you’d make an Aperol spritz (using that 3-2-1 formula!). I ordered a bunch of Haus product and have been trying it all. I’m going to do a big review on the blog with my favorite flavors, etc. but right now can tell you that I really like this brand and that the Peach Passionfruit and Citrus Flower are both wonderful as a spritz! I like that Haus is still a bit under the radar so when you serve it your guests will ask questions and be very curious about what they are drinking.
White Wine Spritzer
This is basically just watered down white wine and it’s delightful!
- White Wine (I like a citrusy sauvignon blanc: Josh, Oyster Bay, and Prophecy all have good ones!)
- Lemon or Lime
- Club soda
Fill a big glass with ice, add 3 parts white wine and one part club soda. Garnish with a slice of lemon or lime, for extra credit add a bit of lime juice!
- (my FAV CBD seltzer!)
- Lime Juice
- Sprig of Mint
- Club soda
Fill a big glass with ice, add 3 parts Bimble, 1 part tequila, and top with club soda. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice and garnish with a sprig of mint.
red wine spritz!
Irish Soda Bread-Easy Recipe
Makes one loaf
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter (1/4 cup) softened
1 teaspoon caraway seeds, (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, soda and salt and stir well to mix.
Add the butter and rub in until the butter disappears into the dry ingredients.
Stir in the caraway seeds if used and the raisins.
In a small bowl, whisk the buttermilk and egg together and mix into the dough mixture with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.
Turn the dough out on a floured work surface and fold it over on itself and kneed several times. Transfer to well greased loaf pan. Cut a cross in the top of the bread. Bake for about 45 minutes check with toothpick that center is cooked.
Cool the soda bread on a rack. Slice and serve with butter.
This is my Mom’s recipe. It calls for 3 tablespoons of butter. I prefer to add 4 tablespoons (I like butter) for a richer taste and texture. Also, you don’t have to make it in a loaf pan. It can be shaped by hand into a round and placed on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or tin foil.
Tip: If you’re wondering how you can have something this delicious and maintain your girlish figure, remember to indulge on a “treat” day or special occasion. Grab my Ten Ways to Lose 10 Pounds booklet (at right) to read more about enjoying food and a great figure too.

Irish Spritzer recipe - Recipes
The B-52 is a popular, eye-catching shot composed of three liqueurs: Baileys Irish cream, Grand Marnier and coffee liqueur. The drink’s origin is not completely clear, but rather than being named for the 1950s-built B-52 bomber, it is believed to have originated during the 1970s by a bartender and fan of the iconic band The B-52s.
While some shots are shaken with ice and strained, the B-52 is made by adding each element directly to the shot glass. Since there’s no ice, many bartenders choose to keep the ingredients refrigerated, so they can be served cold.
The shot’s intricate appearance is belied by its very simple construction, in which the ingredients are layered in the glass in order of most dense to lease dense. In this case, the sweet and syrupy coffee liqueur goes on the bottom, followed by the Baileys and then the Grand Marnier, which is the lightest of the three. Pouring the liquids slowly over a bar spoon will help them settle on top of each other to achieve the desired look.
Over the years, bartenders have created many layered B-52-style drinks that riff on the original and either add or replace the primary ingredients. In the B-53, Sambuca replaces the Irish cream, while the B-54 subs amaretto for the orange liqueur. But the most common variation is the Flaming B-52, a risky endeavor in which the top layer of the shot is set on fire. In this case, drinkers will often top the drink with a dash of overproof rum or another high-proof spirit that easily ignites.
Making a round of perfectly layered B-52 shots is a proven method for livening up parties. It’s hard to resist the sweet combination of coffee liqueur, Irish cream and Grand Marnier. The shot looks good, goes down easily and is usually followed by calls for another round.

We can’t say enough about Irish soda bread — from pairing it with corned beef and cabbage to smearing with a dollop of Irish butter, it’s a must-have for your St. Patrick’s Day table. This year, why not switch it up with a few fun twists? Though these recipes are fundamentally similar (you can’t have soda bread without baking soda, after all!), there are minor changes — say, using lemon zest and walnuts or baking the dough as biscuits — that can make a huge difference. Bring on the Irish eats!

Step away from everything you associate with St. Patrick's Day cocktails and consider mixing up an Irish Encounter. It's fun, delicious, and an excuse to break out the blender.
The "encounter" in the recipe refers to the short shot of Irish cream. Beyond that, we're looking at a frozen Piña Colada, complete with rum and plenty of coconut milk. We even toss in a fresh banana.
