Healthy Blackberry Spritzer
Happy (almost) New Years! I’m so excited to celebrate the end of 2015 and ring in the new year tonight. The new year promises to be a great one — full of family, friends, travel and, let’s not forget, new recipes.
For the last few weeks, I’ve been busy testing out new, healthy and tasty recipes. I’m even playing with some sugar-free (yet, completely delicious) dessert options, sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. Be sure to check back in over the next few weeks for what I have in store.
Today, I want to share with you this healthy blackberry spritzer — just in time for your New Year’s Eve toast! It’s super refreshing and easy to make so you have no excuse but to whip a few up for you and your friends. For a slightly boozy twist, add a splash of vodka or swap out the sparkling water with champagne or sparkling white wine.
Cheers to the new year!
