Fruit Infused Sparkling Water (with or without alcohol)

Gunshots are going off in Kosovo! That means wedding season is upon us. They sure know how to party here!
A healthy alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink that will not only quench your thirst on a hot day, but be a perfect addition to a special shower or celebration

This month’s Recipe ReDux challenged us to create a “colorful drink concoction” for celebrations. Here is something delicious that can be served with or without alcohol.

I made this fruit infused sparkling water with viljamovka, which is a pear brandy popular in this region of the world. You can use any kind of clear liquor that goes well with citrus.
