It's finally that time again, football season and FALL! I can't wait, who else is with me!? If you know me, I might not be the biggest sports buff, but I enjoy being social during the games! ( Then I annoyingly ask "what's going on? what's that mean? ")
So I thought what better way to kick off foot ball season than by making a fun drink to sip on while I go tailgating! Better yet, include my all time favorite syrups to do so! So I teamed up with Torani to make a refreshing and mouth watering beverage to share with all my pals while we tailgate!
One of my favorite cocktails is a Gin Fizz, so I thought , why not turn that into something fun and for a crowd using the Torani Lemon Syrup! This way, no mess squeezing a bunch of lemons, but I still get that great crisp flavor. You could also make this a non-alcoholic version!
I love using the Torani signature syrups because every single flavor is so versatile and can be used in a big variety of recipes and creations! One flavor can make endless options. (I also use their syrup in my iced coffee everyday!) You can even get it in a sugar free version, which I love. Torani is made with simple + thoughtfully sources ingredients AND you can find it at most grocery stores and online HERE.
I ordered a bunch of drink pouches off of Amazon( you can find those here+ they come with the straws!) to put my Lemon Fizz in. I thought this was not only fun, but perfect for walking and hanging out while we are tailgating. OH AND FUN!
Here's what you need:
-1 1/2 -2 tablespoons Torani Lemon Syrup
-6-8 oz fizzy water( I used Lemon for extra flavor but you can use non flavored soda water)
-1.5 oz Gin
-1/5 oz. St. Germain
-sliced lemon for garnish
-3-4 frozen strawberries
(FOR NON ALCOHOLIC VERSION: Just add more soda water and more Torani Lemon Syrup to taste- This will be a yummy soda water!)
Fill your mixing glass with a small amount of ice. Mix in alcohol and Torani Lemon Syrup. Then top off with soda water. Pour into pouch or cup and add lemon slices + frozen strawberries.
I hope you have fun creating this simple yet fun drink for all of your tailgating festivities! Don't forget to follow Torani for lots of recipe inspiration and ideas as well.
