Summer is here and it has come in full force over here! I absolutely LOVE the hot weather, but with 2 toddler boys and being outside almost all day I need something that cools me down, is easy to make, and is ONLY for me, but if the kids get a sip it's the the end of the world because like I said.. easy to make and put together.
So I was grocery shopping, and being summer 1/2 of my groceries comes from the drink isle. So I was walking down the isle and came across this new drink I've never seen before... OCEANSPRAY® MOCKTAILS! Of course the name and the packaging caught my eye right away. I'm living off of liquids basically. That's horrible to say, but sometimes true. So I love finding new yummy drinks!
So of course I threw a bottle of some in my cart. I couldn't wait to get home and try it honestly.
So I finished up shopping, got home and put it in my fridge to let it cool for a bit. About an hour later, I poured me a glass straight out of the bottl over some crushed ice.
I downed it! So yummy! Tasted like a tropical oasis! I literally could have carried the bottle around with me that entire afternoon.
After my second glass full I was looking as the bottle and saw that there were serving options:
-You can drink it plain like I was (obviously!) at this point the bottle was half empty!
-You can add seltzer water, some bubbly, or some sprite..
-Or you can go super tropical and add rum.
I needed a little pick me up this afternoon, and I like red bull energy drink, and so I thought I would be adventurous and do a little bit of each!
So here's what I did...
TROPICAL ENERGY MOCKTAIL:
•First thing, get your most favorite cup. A cute cup always makes for a great drink! (At least that's what I think!)
•Lots of Crushed Ice
•3/4 part Red Bull
•1/4 part Oceanspray® Tropical Citrus Paradise Mocktail™
Mix it all together... and you've got yourself a delicious afternoon refresher!
They have a lot of different flavors of Mocktail Drinks as well... So if this Tropical one isn't for you, go find another. Because I guarantee you will find one that sounds yummy to you!
Now go and make yourself a yummy drink and enjoy your summer!
