Everyone loves to sip on a special beverage once in a while, especially in the heat of summer. If you're like me and avoiding alcohol due to pregnancy, or just for your own health, it gets a little boring drinking water when everyone else has a fancy cocktail. That's why I came up with a few drinks that are easy to make, low in sugar, and so tasty you won't feel left out of the party for one second!
Watermelon Jalapeno Margarita
2 cups cubed watermelon, frozen
1 fresh jalapeno, seeded
Juice from 1 lime
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Add lime juice and/or water for desired flavor/consistency.
Peach Basil Iced Tea
4 tea decaf teabags
Pure liquid stevia
1 bundle of basil
Brew tea according to package.
Slightly sweeten tea to your preference with a few drops of stevia
Cut peaches into slices and add to the pitcher
Roughly chop basil and add to the mixture
Refrigerate for a least a few hours(or overnight) so that the tea soaks up all the flavor of the peaches and basil.
2 parts sparkling water
1 part pure, unsweetened cranberry juice
1/2 part limeade(I like simple truth brand)
Pour sparkling water, cranberry juice, and limeade over ice.
Top with extra lime juice and a lime wedge.
