Berry Mocktail

I don’t know about where anyone else lives, but it is hot as ****** down here in Columbia, SC. At 9am this morning, it was already above 90 degrees. I might melt. Or die.

So this afternoon, I decided to treat myself to a cool little drink. It’s somewhere between a smoothie and a sparkling cocktail. And it was exactly what I was craving. berrymocktail

{All of you lushes can add some liquor and make a cocktail instead of a mocktail, but I was too hot for alcohol!}

Berry Mocktail

Ingredients: 

  • 5 strawberries
  • 5 cherries (pits removed)
  • 5 ice cubes
  • 1 can of Prickly Pear San Pellegrino (Ficodindia e Arancia)
  • Fresh mint

Instructions: 

  1. Use a food processor or blender to blend the berries and ice together. (Don’t put the soda in now… it’ll fizz all up!)
  2. Stir the can of soda into the mixture.
  3. Garnish with fresh mint.
Makes 1 large personal drink (as pictured) or 3-4 cocktail-size servings. Could easily scale up and make a pitcher to share!
