Strawberry Gin Fizz

OK, I'm officially too hot. After the horrible, never-ending winter we had I definitely was prepared to tolerate heat and I'm still not really complaining. But daily heat index readings over 100 degrees are making me come kind of close to complaining. Just slap me next February, OK? Drinks! We need drinks. Tall, icy cool drinks.

Strawberry Gin Fizz
My best friend is getting ready to move out of state and I'm trying to spend as much time with her this summer as I can. So, lots of heart-to-hearts, reminiscing, shopping, eating and definitely drinking. She and I know how to do cocktails. But we'd also prefer not to pack on the calories.

Fresh fruit makes the best base for summer cocktails and the strawberries are at peak season. I walked past them at the farmer's market and their aroma was intoxicating. A perfect base for a tall cool gin cocktail.

I've also been making batches of sugar free simple syrup using Sweet N Low and keeping them in handy jars in my fridge. With this zero calorie sweetener, I can make the drinks as sweet as I want without adding calories. So, that means my friend and I can have a whole pitcher of drinks! Cheers!
