All opinions are mine alone. #NewWaytoSparkle #CollectiveBiasWith the weather warming up lately, I have wanted nothing more than a cool, refreshing drink. My go-to, when I’m not reaching for a basic cup of water, has been flavored sparkling water. On one of my
daily weekly Target trips, I discovered the Dasani Sparkling water line. I love how the Dasani Sparkling line is full of flavor, but with zero calories. It’s fun to spice up my water sometimes, and sparkling water feels like a special treat. I love to wind down with a glass, while I’m in the bathtub, at the end of the day and pretend I’m being pampered at a spa… real life ;).
I’ve also had fun playing with different flavors of sparkling water and making little ‘mocktail’ drinks for ‘happy hour at home.’ Since Piper is still pretty little, she sometimes takes a little catnap before her final feeding in the evening, around 5 pm. Man, that girl can sleep…and I don’t hate it! Sometimes while she’s down, I’ll mix up a drink and Scofield and I will catch up on our day during our ‘happy hour at home.’ Then Piper wakes up, we do her nighttime routine and put her back down, and resume our evening with dinner. It’s been a fun routine I look forward to during the day… and it’s what gets me through that dreaded witching hour when all babies decide to get out all of their leftover tears from the day, which sometimes results in moms crying too ;).If you’re looking for a fun new drink to try, I’ve included my recipe for my go-to drink below!
Frozen Raspberry Faux Daiquiri
- 1/2 Cup Dasani Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade
- 1/2 Cup Dasani Sparkling Tropical Pineapple
- Fresh Lime Juice
- 1/2 Cup Frozen Raspberries
- 1/2 Cup Frozen Pineapple
- 1 Tbsp. Agave Nectar
Blend all ingredients together, using a blender or food processor, until smooth. When making this drink, I typically play with the ingredients until I get the taste I want. The amounts I included are a close estimate when making this recipe for two people. But, if you want it sweeter add more agave nectar (or honey!), and if you want it more tart, add more raspberries. You can also add extra frozen fruit if you want it thicker, and more liquid if you want it to be smoother.
