Zero-Proof Strawberry Mint Maple Water Spritzer
When the weather starts to warm up and the flowers start to bloom, that can only mean one thing – springtime is here. And along with the Easter egg hunts and outdoor concerts that we can start to look forward to, we also get to enjoy an abundance of springtime produce that are at their peak of freshness this time of year. From asparagus to Spring peas, there are some unique seasonal vegetables that are the stuff that dreams are made of.
Berries are one Springtime food that people can’t seem to get enough of. And while they are absolutely delish to enjoy on their own, they can make a fantastic addition to recipes like a refreshing mocktail to sip on all Spring long.
Instead of leaning on super-sugary syrups and sweeteners, using maple water in your mocktail recipes can give your drink some sweetness with no added sugars. A berry sparkler is a totally satisfying springtime sip that is loaded with good-for-you antioxidants and nothing artificial. Try this drink the next time you want to celebrate the season in a booze-free and totally delicious way.
