Alkalizing Berry Mint Sparkler
Small handful of local, seasonal berries of your choice (you can always use frozen as well if fresh is not available)
A few sprigs of fresh mint
2 tbsp. – Freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 ½ cup – Sparkling water
2 splashes of 100% Organic Cranberry Pomegranate Blueberry juice
* Optional to add 1oz of either vodka or gin
Add berries and mint in a glass and muddle.
Fill glass with ice.
Add lemon juice, sparkling water, and juice (and alcohol if using) to glass.
Stir and enjoy!
Note: Our bodies treat alcohol as a toxin. No matter what form it takes, your body can only process so much before there are short-term and long-term effects. Therefore, although these are less harmful alternatives, it does not mean you should over consume.
