There is nothing more perfect on a summer day than relaxing by the pool and reading a good book. Unless of course you have a fruity drink in your hand. It’s one of those things that go hand in hand. Kind of like milk and cookies, peanut butter and jelly, or as Forrest Gump says “like peas and carrots.” This summer, pass on the usual sugary filled umbrella drinks and embrace a new healthier beverage. My Sparkling Tropical Mojito Mocktail is easy to whip together and sure to add a splash of fun to your next summer party!
You didn’t think I could improve on a traditional mojito, could you? Well stand back and prepare to be amazed. This revamped version is the ultimate summer drink for anyone who is watching their weight, but still wants to enjoy a fun fruity sip. We all know how hard it can be to turn down a bright-colored drink or soda when it’s hot outside. But, if you are in the middle of a workout plan or have decided to change your lifestyle, this Sparkling Tropical Mojito Mocktail is one drink you will be able to kick back and enjoy without regrets.
For this recipe, I used Dasani Sparkling Tropical Pineapple and Lime flavors. I absolutely love the flavor combo. There is no better way to watch your waistline, than to swap out a calorie filled soda for a Dasani Sparkling beverage. They are refreshing, crisp, slightly fizzy and undeniably tasty. I would be lying if I said the new look of the cans didn’t draw me in. I know…I shouldn’t buy a product because of the packaging. But these cans are sleek, shiny, and oh so mesmerizing. It’s like they were calling my name on the shelves. I found them at my local Target store, along with Raspberry Lemonade, Berry, Black Cherry, and Lemon. Oh the possibilities of endless fruity drinks!
To transform your typical mojito into a tropical sensation start by muddling together 1/4 cup of chopped pineapple, 1-2 sprigs of fresh mint, 1/2 tsp of honey and the juice of half a lime. Combine 1 cup of Dasani Sparkling Tropical Pineapple and 1 cup of Dasani Sparkling Lime into the muddled ingredients and stir. Pour your drink over ice and garnish with additional fresh pineapple and mint.
This is one mocktail you don’t want to mock! It’s fresh, delish and the perfect drink to enjoy during your afternoon break or in my case, while my son naps. It’s little moments like these that I try not to take for granted. Thanks to the new Dasani Sparkling flavors, I can make nap time sparkle just a bit more.
