Brunch Basics: Strawberry Lime Delight

Strawberry Lime Delight

Brunch is a great time to have refreshing fruit juices.  They balance out the eggs, meats, and starches so well.  Plus, they just taste delicious!  This Strawberry Lime Delight is made as a pitcher so it can serve a gathering.  I made it non-alcoholic.  However, feel free to substitute the club soda for sparkling wine for a tasty mimosa.  This would also be good with a shot of dark rum and served in the late afternoon.

Strawberry Lime Delight

  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1-2 limes, freshly squeezed
  • 1 liter club soda
  • Orange juice

Combine strawberries and lime in a blender.  Pureé until smooth.  Add club soda and blend until combined.  Pour into a pitcher.

In each glass fill with ice and pour half way up with orange juice.  Add the strawberry mixture.  Without mixing, this makes a beautiful presentation along with a strawberry on the rim.

(You can also combine strawberry mixture and orange juice into one pitcher for easier serving. )

  16. This looks like the kind of drink one would sip at an elegant resort…so how fun would it be to whip up a batch of strawberry lime delight for brunch! Sooooo want to surprise my family with this during their next visit.

  17. WHAT ???? no vodka or rum …!!!! Just kidding, I don’t drink either one. This looks refrshing for summer picnics or bar b ques. Can’ wait to try it.

Let me know what you think!
