Superberries Spring Drinks

Spring is here. Whether the warm weather turns your thoughts to backyard barbecues or drinks on your porch while the blossoming aromas wash over you on a quiet afternoon, it is time to shake off winter and enjoy this season of renewal. For many reasons, some people prefer to enjoy non-alcoholic drinks, and that is an opportunity to get creative with your beverage selections. Check out these 7 refreshing drinks to serve at your next gathering.

1. Strawberry Blended Mocktail

For a super easy, light, blended drink that will please almost anyone, try this strawberry blended mocktail. This recipe calls for lime essential oil, which has a slightly different flavor than lime juice. If you don’t have that, don’t worry.  You can substitute 1 teaspoon lime juice or 1 teaspoon of lime zest for every drop of lime essential oil. For an antioxidant boost, add some Superberries Aronia berry Concentrate before you blend. https://pinkfortitude.com/dharmarita/

2. Watermelon Spritzer

If you are looking for bolder flavors, try this watermelon spritzer. The addition of limeade brightens the subtle watermelon flavor, and it looks beautiful served in a nice glass with lime slices. Garnish with Frozen Aroniaberries too. https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/watermelon-spritzer/

3. Berry Lemonade

For another bright, beautiful drink, try this blackberry lemonade, especially when blackberries are in season. Though this one does require a little cooking to make the simple syrup, don’t let that stop you from trying this amazing drink. Making the syrup at home is easy and more economical than buying it at the store, and you can skip a step and leave the seeds in if you like. Or use the Aroniaberrry Concentrate in this recipe.  https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/blackberry-lemonade/

7. Aroniaberry Sangria

Sometimes mocktails can feel a little like kiddie drinks, but non-alcoholic sangria is another exciting beverage to serve to your adult friends while you’re sitting around the firepit or hanging out on the deck on a warm night. This recipe mimics a white-wine sangria, but if you want to add the bright flavor and tannic feel of a red wine sangria, stir in one tablespoon of Superberries Aronia berry Concentrate. Not only will you have a delicious drink to serve to your friends, but you will be providing them with an antioxidant super boost. https://foodmamma.com/2018/05/non-alcoholic-berry-sangria/

No matter which of these recipes you try, you will be giving yourself and your guests a special treat. Mocktails often contain vitamins and minerals our bodies crave and serving them to young people is an easy way to get them to eat a serving of fruit. Let this spring be about nurturing your body and your soul.
