An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance
Summertime. Camping, Boating, Beaching and BBQing.
It’s hard not to over indulge as your social calendar cranks up (and your responsibilities wind down). I could easily end up over-indulging ever night of the week, if I’m not careful. I’m often told, “You’re on vacation”. Which I find exceedingly annoying, because as it turns out, every weekend of summer is vacation. And every summer I seem to swell!
A client and I were discussing this conundrum, which subsequently inspired my mocktail making. What is a mocktail you ask? It’s a alcohol-free beverage that is still super fun to drink. Many mocktails are made with syrups and sugars and other headache-causing ingredients that can still leave you feeling lousy the next day.
I wanted my mocktail simple and both chemical and sweetner-free. I used a lemon lime La Croix as the base. (Can someone please give me the correct pronunciation on these!? Is it La “quwaah”? Or La “croy”? or some other Alex Trebek pronunciation I haven’t considered)
Give this a go, or make your own and share here!
4 oz ice-chilled lemon lime La Croix (or pour over ice)
1/4 lemon juice and pulp
1/4 lime juice
1 ginger shaving
ALWAYS serve a mocktail in a fun glass with a garnish.
Mocktails. They’re not just for pregnant women.
