Strawberry Lime Cocktail

This libation is sweet, tart, and refreshingly delicious. It is the liquid embodiment of spring with a boozy touch. It is the perfect way to start and end your weekend, and gulp during of course. In case you are too young to consume alcohol, or simply want a virgin rendition of this drink, it can easily be made non-alcoholic. Simply replace the champagne and vodka with Sprite, sparkling water, club soda, or a combination of the three.
