Hi everyone! This will be a quicky today cause the Etsy shop is hoppin’ and I’m off to the kitchen to make some goodies! Don’t forget my coupon code THANKS is still active for 10% off your order. It expires 6/26/15.
I was playing around with making my own Sprite without the high fructose corn syrup and other scary ingredients. I had seen several pinterest posts on it so I thought I would give it a go and I’m so glad I did. You all-I sucked this down in about 2 seconds flat after I took the last picture. (as a side note-I concoct things, take the pictures while they are still uneaten, unused and pretty then I try them. I’ve got lots of pictures that were a bust, lol!)
This recipe is so perfect for summer-It’s so refreshing and when garnished it is so pretty!
DIY Sprite: (1 serving)
- 1 lime
- 1 lemon
- 1.5 cups Sparkling Water
- 1 packet of sugar (I used Sweet Leaf but you could go for Stevia or real sugar too)
- Blackberries or Raspberries
- Handful of ice
- Juice 1 lime and 1 lemon
- Add to 1.5 cups of sparkling water.
- Stir in sugar. (raw honey was my first choice and did not work btw)
- Add ice.
- Garnish with mint and berries.
Absolutely the perfect summer drink! Oh and for those nights mama needs a little help? A splash of vodka does the trick! So easy and quick and you’ve ditched the unnatural, sugar filled Sprite!
P.S. Don’t skip on the fresh mint because mint doesn’t seem like it goes with Sprite-It totally makes the drink!
