friday afternoon treat

strawberry orange mint soda

on my way home from work today, all i could think about was making a big bowl of popcorn and plopping down on the couch for a while.  between the prep for jared's brother's wedding next weekend, our own wedding planning, work, and the heat, i am feeling beat today.  but, as soon as i walked in the door, i remembered this that i had seen earlier today.  feeling a bit lazy and too tired for a cocktail (which surely would have meant that i would not make it off the couch for the rest of the evening) i whipped up my own easy peasy version of the strawberry mint spritzer.  

chop a handful of strawberries, a small sprig of orange mint (this was delicious, but any kind of mint will do. even better if it's from your own garden) and threw it in a glass with some ice cubes and seltzer water.  delicious.  and mighty refreshing as i sit on the couch.  
happy weekend friends! xo


  1. Oh, that looks delicious! I am growing lime and chocolate mint, and I have the rest of those ingredients already as well...might have to try it this afternoon!

  2. YUM! I've never heard of orange mint but it sounds delish. I must make one of those asap!
