Planning a brunch, lunch or dinner party? Or just want to bring a little something extra to that run of the mill Tuesday night? Then a Mocktail might be exactly what you’re looking for.

We love anything light, refreshing and sans anything sickly sweet or artificial. Something not too overpowering with lots of fresh fruit is what we’re all about.

Fruit spritz:

Our favourites are Pink Grapefruit or Berry

  • ½ cup of frozen berries OR ½ cup chopped fresh pink grapefruit
    • You can use regular grapefruit for the additional health benefits, however keep in mind the drink will have a sour kick)

Method:

  1. Place fruit in blender and blend until you have a fruit puree (it is okay to still have some chunky bits, adds to the overall look of the spritzer).
  2. Pour fruit into glass of your choice.
  3. Top with sparkling water.
  4. Stir before serving.
