I love water. I love it. I drink it every day and think I get more than my daily allowance. I wake up and have some, drink it through exercise and have it in my car and at my desk all day long. My kids have seen this habit and drink water almost exclusively as well. However, water can be a little boring after a while. In fact, as hard as I have been working out lately, I would love a little treat that perks me up without reducing what I have done at the gym. Enter my Raspberry Mimosa Mocktail! It’s an awesome, clean and crisp flavor that starts with smartwater® sparkling from Sam’s Club!
Sam’s Club smartwater® sparkling offers that crisp, clean taste I crave. I really like a bottle right after I work out to help rehydrate. The light taste of the bubbles with the clean taste of water makes me feel like I am getting a little more than ‘just water’ after I have sweat so much
smartwater® sparkling is a water you need in your home. Not just for drinking outright, though, but also for recipes that need a non-sugar substitute.
Mimosas are one of my favorite things ever. But I don’t drink much and I am not always in the mood for champagne when I want a treat. By subbing in smartwater® sparkling and adding some extra flavor with fruit, like raspberries, I can get the same taste of luxury without the alcohol and calories
Check out how easy this is:
- 1 cup raspberries
- ¾ cup sugar
- smartwater® sparkling
- Pulp Free Orange Juice (we suggest Simply Orange®)
- lemon juice
- In a saucepan, mix ¾ cup raspberries and ½ cup sugar. Let melt together to create a simple syrup. Strain and let cool.
- On the glass, wipe the cut lemon over the rim. Dip the rim in sugar.
- In a glass, mix ½ with smartwater® sparkling and ½ with orange juice. Add in about a tablespoon of the simple syrup to taste. Store the rest in an airtight container for later. Add a few fresh raspberries in for more flavor. Mix and enjoy.
