Hello Friday and it’s such a gorgeous morning here today. Although there is a slight nip in the air we can see the bright sun peeking through the lush green mountain fading away from the mist…simply beautiful.

The weekend almost here and this one is going to be extra special and busy because it’s Mother’s Day this Sunday (May 10th).

I’m sure many of you would have planned a fun and wonderful day around mom’s favorite things and a couple of you might be still in the process of it.

Although, mom always has this special place in our heart I feel it’s a wonderful gesture to pamper and make your mom feel extra special on this day.

Just treat her like a queen, do things that she likes and definitely spend quality time with her. I’m sure nothing pleases them more than this.

With all this in mind, I wanted to share a recipe that goes really well with our occasion and also easy to make as I know many of these recipes would be made by Dad’s and Kid’s together for mom.

So here’s the recipe for Cardamom Rosemary Lemonade Spritzer. It’s a lemony drink, infused with the flavors of cardamom-rosemary and the addition of soda makes it light and enjoyable with any choice of meal.

Now, you may ask why cardamom and rosemary? You have to try this combination to actually believe how well they go together.

They both have this sweet smell and makes this drink even more potent and special in taste. This drink also goes great with spicy meals as it cools down your tummy.

This recipe can be made two way with wine or water (depending absolutely on your choice) and I’ve rimmed the glasses for some fancy effect which is optional.

Making Spritzer with Wine:

  1. In a medium bowl, add lemon juice, sugar, cardamom, rosemary and muddle for a minute.
  2. Strain the lemon juice in another bowl.
  3. Take a large pitcher, add strained lemon juice, Moscato and give it a quick stir.
  4. Remove the glasses from the refrigerator.
  5. Fill halfway with Moscato-Lemonade and add club soda.
  6. Serve Chilled

    I love rosemary, basil or lavender with lemonade but I must try it with cardamon!
