Lately, I’ve noticed more fresh berries popping up in grocery stores and farmer’s markets. It’s an exciting sign of the summer season. At Club 10 at Hotel Principe di Savoia (Milan), spa-goers have been able to savor sweet berries all month long with a relaxing body treatment and refreshing mocktail. The Strawberry Oil Massage ($95, 25 minutes) incorporates aromatic strawberry massage oil and keeps the good feeling going with a strawberry and lime mocktail following the service. The spa special ends this week, but this easy recipe is sure to be a popular choice all summer long.
- 4 parts strawberry puree
- 4 parts ginger ale
- 1 part sugar syrup
- 1 part lime juice
Mix all ingredients in a shaker, and serve with garnish of mint leaves, strawberry slices, and orange slices. For other spa-inspired recipes, check out Papaya Ginger Soup, Almond Panna Cotta, and Roasted Vegetables.
