Strawberry Rose Mint Fizz – A Refreshing Summer Cooler

Strawberry Rose Mint Fizz Cooler

Drinks, Optimum G2.3 | 5th July 2017 | By

Summer is really here now. I know because it’s Wimbledon and it’s my birthday in a few days’ time. But not only that, it’s actually very warm and has been for a while. It’s important to remain hydrated in hot weather and having a few delicious drink recipes on hand helps. This strawberry rose mint fizz cooler recipe is ideal for the occasion.

When I’m really hot, I like to drink something that is sightly tart. I find a drop of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water works really well. More recently I’ve been using my kombucha vinegar to the same effect. It’s always nice to ring the changes though and to have something special on hand for guests or visitors. When I saw this post for raspberry and mint frosé over at Feeding Boys, it made me so thirsty, I immediately rushed off to create this strawberry rose mint fizz cooler.

My strawberry rose mint fizz isn’t alcoholic. Everyone, including children can drink this in complete confidence. However, if the desire is there, a slug of gin would make a very nice addition. It’s simple and quick to make and very refreshing. The strawberry hit is as good as a Wimbledon grand slam – it’s delightful with subtle undertones of fragrant rose, fresh mint and cooling ice. I’m just glad it’s not me on Centre Court.

I make my own rose syrup. It’s very easy if you have access to unsprayed deep scented roses. I used my fabulous Optimum G2.3 induction blender which blitzed the strawberries, mint and ice in seconds.

    I have just had to open a bottle of my Blueberry fizz over the sink as it exploded! Reckon your lovely recipe could be adapted using whey and lacto-fermenting to make the bubbles? It only takes a couple of days in the summer. I use the whey from my kefir…

      That sounds fantastic Jenny. I’ve used whey for lacto-fermenting, but I’ve not tried it for fruit drinks. Do you sweeten it with anything?

    happy birthday – I think this drink would be a lovely birthday drink – perfect for sitting out in the garden and enjoying the sunshine (hope there is sunshine). We are so into our lemonade that we make it quite often – I think I should try strawberries in it when summer is here again – though I am not sure I will have rose syrup but perhaps rosewater.

      Ah yes homemade lemonade. That’s possibly the best summer drink ever. It’s always good to have a bit of variety I find and rose and strawberry go very nicely together.

      What a wonderful picture that “an abundance of strawberries” conjures up. I’m not envious really! Let me know if you make it.

    Wow, what a beautiful looking drink. I must make some rose syrup before the blooms go!

      Yes do Janice. I’d be lost without mine in the summer and er, maybe the rest of the year too 😀
