Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Sage Berry Spritzer (Low Alcohol)

March 02, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

It's been a little while, we shouldn't have left you, without a dope drink to sip on (sip on, sip on). 

 We're back from our honey moon (more on that soon) and we are ready to share a low alcohol spritzer to start the week off!

So, you’ve made your fancy Martini and have some sweet or white vermouth just lying around and you’re in the mood for fruity libations (that means drink... get your mind out the gutter). Why not make a sage berry spritzer? We know... we know... spritzers are usually made with Prosecco or other sparkling wine. But vermouth is still wine at the end of the day & we will show you how to make that sparkle!

As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
