Light and refreshing, these Citrus Rosemary Vodka Spritzers fit perfectly at both casual get togethers and elegant dinner parties.

Let’s talk citrus. During the long, seemingly endless snowy Ohio winters, one of my favorite ingredients to shop for are citrus fruits. Wandering through the supermarket, I love seeing the towering displays of oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruits. It’s these bright, colorful and vibrant fruit that inspired my Citrus Rosemary Vodka Spritzers.

Since then, I’ve been devising cocktail recipes that showcase these flavorful homemade vodkas. This Citrus Rosemary Vodka Spritzer is an easy 3 ingredient cocktail that you can mix ahead of time, then top with some seltzer water and serve.

I love simple cocktails. It’s not that I don’t enjoy trying unique techniques and playing around with various liquor and flavor combinations, because there are times that I love that! There is, however, something about having simple cocktails with only a few ingredients that I love having in my repertoire, too.

It’s just good quality lemonade (homemade if you’re feeling extra fancy) citrus rosemary infused vodka and seltzer water – that’s it.

Mix a batch of lemonade and vodka together ahead of time and simply top it with seltzer water before serving for a completely fuss free drink. Serve it at a casual get together, fancy dinner party or sip on them during your Downton Abbey marathon. Either way, they’re fabulous.

    This is sounds really nice! I have some rhubarb vodka at home and I’ve been wondering what to do with it. I bet something similar to this would be good
