Strawberry Gin Spritzer

This low-alcohol spritzer is just the thing to imbibe on a hot summer's day. Gentian liqueurs are made from the roots of gentian, a blue-petaled wildflower that grows throughout the Alps. This recipe makes about 1 cup of syrup but you'll only need 1 Tbsp. to make each drink—try a splash in seltzer for a DIY craft soda.
