Why You’ll Love This Refreshing Blood Orange Strawberry Spritz

I love a cocktail that will transport you with just a sip, and this blood-orange strawberry spritz does just that. I sip this drink and I’m immediately by the pool, on a veranda, under an umbrella at the beach, etc. Regardless, I’m in the sun and I’m enjoying a refreshing beverage!

This cocktail tastes juicy, have you ever experienced that? The blood orange juice and strawberry syrup complement each other perfectly, and every sip feels fresh and exciting. 

One thing that was important to me about this recipe was to make it as easy as possible, so I’m using my strawberry syrup recipe. You can make up a big batch of it to use later for other cocktails and recipes!

Ingredients

Only four simple ingredients, plus some ice! I also made this cocktail easier by using strawberry syrup that you’ll (hopefully) already have in your fridge or freezer. If not, no worries – it’s easy to whip up!

  • Strawberry syrup 
  • Blood orange juice 
  • Lillet blanc
  • Prosecco or champagne
  • Ice

How To Make a Strawberry and Blood Orange Drink

This might be one of the easiest cocktails to make – you don’t even need a cocktail shaker. 

Just add your strawberry syrup, blood orange juice, Lillet blanc, and ice to a large wine glass. Stir these ingredients together and then top the glass with prosecco or champagne. Voila!
