Although I don’t drink alcohol, I do enjoy indulging in a sparkling beverage at festive events.
This little fruit based treat below is perfect for adults and children on special occasions. My boys love it, as do I. Here, I use pineapple juice, though feel free to use any juice of your choice and garnish with your favorite citrus or other fruits.
DIY Sparkling Beverage
- 2-3 bottles sparkling water 32 ounce, I use Apollinaris
- 1 32oz bottle fruit juice (I used pineapple though anything would work)
- Partially fill some fancy glasses 2/3 full with sparkling water
- Top with fruit juice
- Garnish with lemon, lime or orange slices
Make sure to use organic fruit juice from a bottle or fresh from a juicer for better flavor and a more nutrient dense drink.
What a great idea! Having the ability to make your own mixture sounds like it would lead to all kinds of wonderful combinations. I have recently become enamored with a sparkling Swedish drink they sell at Ikea called Kristian Regale Have you ever heard of it or tried it?
Emily -You are very welcome.
This is such an easy and fun treat for us no-sugar or alcohol people (well I don’t know about you, Elana but I can’t have alcoholic beverages)! I was just looking at those “Izze” drinks made from juice concentrate and sparkling water and I thought to myself… I could make this myself at home with fresh juice! And you’ve already done it! So I now I know it will work :-)
I appreciate the time you take to share your recipes, it’s really encouraging to know there are others out there eating the way I do and trying to find treats to enjoy that won’t leave you hurting later. Thank you!
ana -Yes, my children also enjoy making these kinds of concoctions.
Jayn -Thanks, serves 4-8 people.
Shirley -Enjoy and have a great holiday.
This mix sounds lovely. I am always looking for simple, but tasty and healthy beverages for our support group meetings. Will try this for our next meeting–thanks!
How many will this serve?
LOL! My daughter ‘invented’ a similar drink this weekend. She mixed her lemon/lime selzter with her apple juice. I thought it would taste bad but it came out great!
