On a bright sunny day, it’s so nice to cool off with a refreshing sunflower spritz cocktail. It’s been an especially hot summer, and even though fall is just around the corner, we can count on having a few more hot days. So enjoying a refreshing, sparkling beverage is just what is in order. Especially when it tastes great and isn’t going to bust your daily caloric intake.

And when you garnish the drink with lemon, it looks like a little bit of liquid sunshine. What’s even better? The Sunflower Spritz is a low-calorie cocktail having only 86 calories. You can further reduce the calories if you would like by substituting diet lemon-lime soda.

You can easily make the spritz a mocktail by leaving out the vodka. Mixing the lemon juice, club soda, and lemon-lime soda makes a nice refreshing drink for those who want to avoid the alcohol.

Shake first two ingredients well with ice. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice and stir in club soda. Top with juice from squeezed lemon. Garnish with lemon wheel and rosemary sprig.
