A Mocktail You’ll Be Crushing Over.

You don’t drink?! I’ve got you covered for all of your spring and summer “cocktails” this season!

I think the biggest part about creating cocktails for a lot of us is the aesthetic aspect of it. We love taking all of those stunning photographs, feeling fancy, and really just romanticizing an hour of our day. The act of creating a cocktail of any kind, color, and flavor, along with enjoying it after is an activity that we reward ourselves with just because we can. We might appreciate making ourselves something to sip on after enduring a task we thought we’d never finish, or coming home from a long, hard day at the office. If you don’t drink alcohol or maybe you can’t consume it at all for medical reasonings, I’m here to show you that you can join in all of the cocktail making excitement without making something you’re not actually going to be drinking. I, myself don’t drink often. However, if I do and it’s not coffee liquor and cream, it usually consists of something refreshing with slices of fruit and good bubbly effervescence. Never anything strong either because that’s just not my jam; it hasn’t been for many years. Whenever the weather turns warm and the sun is shining strong, it makes me think of fresh citrus all around.

Fresh juice, mint leaves, and two different sodas come together to give you one of the tastiest, lip smacking mocktails ever!

Ingredients & Instructions:

  • Rinse your wine or cocktail glass of choice under cold water. Slightly dry it off and stick it inside of the freezer for a few minutes while you prepare your juice in a martini shaker.
  • In a shaker glass pour in 1 oz. of freshly squeezed lemon juice and 1 1/2 oz. of freshly squeezed orange juice.
  • Add in a drizzle of honey and a few mint leaves to the juice. Put the top on and shake for about 15 seconds.
  • Pour over crushed ice into our cocktail glass!
  • Fill the rest of the glass 3/4 of the way up with orange soda.
  • Finish with lemon lime soda for more of a citrus bite.
  • Garnish with an orange slice and a sprig of fresh mint.

Fresh fruit in a drink screams romance and luxury to me! I love it, it’s gorgeous and the pop of green with the orange is the perfect contrast for spring and summer.
