Spring is in the air and I’m here. for. it. Warm patio nights, my favorite summer playlist, kids playing outside till dark-I LOVE the end of the cold weather season. With warmer temps comes renewed energy. I think we all feel a bit of a rush and I say was ride that wave. While we’re harnessing all this good energy, a light (vitamin C rich) sparkling drink is the perfect refreshment! My homemade Sprite recipe is easy to whip up and oh so refreshing. Plus, it won’t add to your waistline right before swimsuit season!
I was playing around with making my own homemade 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! You might even want to pair it with my yummy tapenade recipe!
Homemade Sprite Recipe: (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, raw honey or real sugar)
- 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 but can be hard to dissolve in cold)
- Add ice.
- Garnish with mint and berries.
So easy and quick and you’ve ditched the unnatural, sugar filled Sprite! Cheers to warmer nights ahead!

P.S. Don’t skip on the fresh mint because mint doesn’t seem like it goes with homemade Sprite-It totally makes the drink!
