Happy Hour: The Summer Garden Spritzer

 I have to be honest, I miss having a nice cocktail when we go out or as the sun has been shining recently, sitting outside with a nice glass of Rose! But hey, soon enough I will be celebrating with little Lady Kobus and will be able to treat myself to a glass of bubbly, so I will not complain...too much. Over the past nine months I have been mixing up a few mocktails to still feel a bit fancy and have favoured citrusy drinks, elderflower and refreshing cucumber flavours. This past weekend I thought, why not combine all of these flavours and make myself a little end of Summer Spritzer! With flavours from a delicious summer garden, I think that the end combination is refreshing and delicious pregnant or not. Cucumbers, basil, mint, elderflower and lemonade all combined voila, delicious. Top it with a pretty garnish or umbrella and you do not feel like you are missing out too much on a cocktail, or add some gin if you are not pregnant and I bet that would be amazing. Cheers!
