Summer BBQ's are in full swing and nothing is simpler or more beloved than a refreshing pitcher cocktail. Luckily, strawberry season is in full swing on the East End and the berries are looking amazing. The office has had a never-ending supply of juicy, local picks for the past few weeks and we decided to use a few to create our own spin on this cocktail from Half Baked Harvest.
Smashed Berry Rosé Cider Spritz
1/2 cup fresh, local strawberries
1/2 cup fresh raspberries
4 basil leaves (optional)
1/4 cup lemon juice
4 ounces silver tequila
4 ounces St. Germain (elderflower liquor)
2 375 mL bottles or cans of No. 139 Rosé Cider, chilled
2 peaches or nectarines, sliced and cut to garnish
In a pitcher, muddle the berries, basil, and lemon juice together, squishing everything to release the juices. Add the tequila, St Germain, and rosé, stirring gently to combine. Stir in the peaches. Chill until ready to serve. Serve over ice and garnish with basil.
