Strawberry Gin Blendy

My strawberry gin blendy was born from the heat of summer, love of fruit (and gin), and the necessity of cleaning out my freezer. You can make this with whatever frozen berries you have. It is light and refreshing, alive with flavor, easy, and a lot healthier than buying pre-made sugary mixes.

Ingredients

  • 1 heaping c frozen strawberries
  • 1 oz gin
  • 1/2-1 tsp agave*
  • 1/2 lime*
  • 1/2-3/4 c ginger beer*
  • 1 sprig mint for garnish*

Recipe

Ok folks, this is almost as easy as it gets. Throw everything into a blender, and blend away! Pour in a vessel or drink straight from the blender with your sprig of mint on top. Enjoy!

*The only ingredients necessary for this recipe are your frozen strawberries and gin. Feel empowered to use whatever alcohol you have on hand, and experiment with different liquids like lemonade, limeade, juice, sparkling water, or whatever you have on hand.

As you can see, my strawberries aren’t the prettiest, but they sure taste good!
