a divine summer spirit

I had one of those perfect summer days. You know. Productive, kids visiting, fabulous weather, dinner with friends…even a hilarious prank call to a friend at work.  The only thing missing was my dear hubby, working in Texas, supporting my perfect summer day lifestyle. Thanks, honey.

It all started with a bike ride, early in the morning.

There were strawberries at every farm stand.

As I peddled on, more and more berries. So, I started thinking…between breathing, of course….

How about a nice, cold, refreshing strawberry cocktail?

Sometimes a rigorous workout leads to divine inspiration. Usually around the time you start seeing spots.

 Let me preface: I drank plenty of water first. By happy hour, I was ready for my divine summer spirit.

Strawberry, Cucumber, Champagne Cooler

12 strawberries, stems removed and halved

6 slices, peeled cucumber

1 tsp. light agave (or natural sweetener)

ice cubes

champagne or sparkling wine

Puree strawberries, cucumber and agave in a blender with one or two ice cubes.

Pour into a glass and top off with your favorite champagne.

Garnish with a cucumber round.

Cheers to summer!
