So, after watching the weather this morning, it looks like it may actually be cooling off. In at least part of the country, it’s going to be cold soon, though here in So-Cal, it’s just going to be less hot. Now that I have finished rambling this recipe is certainly ideal for summer but I think it’s also a special drink for the Holiday Season. Add some vodka for the adults and everyone at your next party will be happy and healthy. While there is sugar in the recipe, you can control the amount to suit you. The vitamin C from the limes and berries combined with the bubbles of the sparkling water taste so sinful, no one will notice the healthy attributes of this drink.
1 cup water
1 cup turbinado sugar
3/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup pureed strawberries ( fresh or frozen)
2 25.3 ounce bottles of sparking water ( approximately 6 cups)
combine sugar and water in saucepan over medium low heat. stir, remove from heat and allow to cool once sugar has dissolved. ,about 5 minutes. combine all ingredients in a large pitcher, stir, and serve over ice.
