summer mockatils.

Well here we go again… Another sober summer… And another season for mixing up a mean cocktail instead of a margarita. The last time around I was able to work with Lupo Verde on their recommendations for some yummy cocktails and this time I’m giving you a few EC Specials. Full disclosure when I am pregnant I actually don’t even crave alcohol very much and don’t even usually need a cocktail unless I am at the beach or an event with friends. 


So this summer I have four options, starting with my go-to Cherry Cranberry and then my three new options! 


Cherry Cranberry 

  • 4 oz. Soda water

  • 2 oz. Cranberry juice

  • 2 oz. grenadine

  • Garnish with maraschino cherries and a lime wedge


Grapefruit Orange

  • 3 oz. soda water

  • 3 oz. freshly squeezed grapefruit juice

  • 1 oz. freshly squeezed orange juice

  • Freshly squeezed lime to taste

  • Garnish with a grapefruit wedge


 Hibiscus Lim

  • 3 oz. soda water

  • 3. Oz Trader Joe’s Hibiscus Agua Fresca

  • 2 oz. fresh lime juice

  • Garnish with lime wedge


Strawberry lime

  • 3 oz. soda water

  • 3 oz. Trader Joe’s Strawberry Lime Agua Fresca

  • 1 oz. Fresh muttled strawberries

  • Garnish with lime wedge or fresh strawberries


Pour all ingredients over ice-filled tall glass and enjoy!
