Your New Summer Spritzer


Summer Spritzer!

Summer is right around the corner, and its already 85 degrees here in Miami! While I do always carry my trust Hydroflask water bottle with me everywhere I go, sometimes it’s nice to switch it up!

This specific spritzer is great, because its herbal, caffeine free and is so refreshing! I love driving sparking water, and it’s really nice to serve to guests as well. I have made this tea hot before, but for the summer….the colder the better!

Lavender has calming benefits, as it has a very light herbal taste to it. Hibiscus tea is known for its antioxidant content and may even help with lowering blood pressure. It also tastes great!

Here is my recipe for your new favorite summer spritzer:


3 tablespoons lavender tea or leaves

3 tablespoons hibiscus tea or leaves

1 lemon

Stevia (optional)

Sparkling Water ( can be flavored)


Boil water, and place tea in a teapot or glass container. Let this steep for 30 minutes or overnight.

  1. In a pitcher, pour 40 ounces of water, the juice of one lemon, and the cold tea

  2. Fill up your favorite wine glass or spritzer class with 8 ounces of sparking water, and add 2-3 ounces of the tea

  3. Add stevia for some sweetness (optional)

Enjoy this beautiful drink yourself, or serve at a party! The color is incredible :) 


Won't you save me San Francisco?

This past week, I celebrated my 30'th birthday and my husband and I took a wonderful trip to one of my favorite cities - San Francisco. When I was 5, my mother and my stepdad moved to San Francisco from Moscow, Russia. SF was my first American home. We lived on 16th and Geary, and I can remember it like it was yesterday!

But whatever you're going through, it still totally applies to you.
