Strawberry Top Vodka Spritzers

Busy.  Life is busy.  I've been working hard to stop using that word, everyone is busy.  I'm not that special.  Instead, I've been trying to say "I have a lot on my plate."  Much better.  Between long weeks at work, grad school, some semblance of a social life, and planning for summer adventures, my plate is very full.

Part of the reason I did a Whole 30 right before all the chaos started was to gain some control of my life.  Although meal planning is a lot of work, when your choices are limited, there is less to think about.  However, that did not mean I did not have cravings!  When I saw the recipe for strawberry top vodka on Wit + Vinegar, I knew it had to be made ASAP.

Here I am, just composting strawberry tops instead of utilizing them properly!  And this is a proper cocktail.  The strawberry tops add a delicate and fruity flavor to the vodka and when topped with a hint of lime, seltzer, and lots of ice, you got yourself a fantastic drink!  Plus, the color is gorgeous.  Perfect for summer, light and refreshing.  The question is not whether or not you're going to make your own strawberry top vodka, it's what other food scraps can you start adding to your vodka!
