I am always looking to have a get together and look for excuses to get together with friends and family! For those of us looking for a good time in a family friendly environment, enjoy these yummy sand vibrant “mock tails” that the whole crew can enjoy!
1.) The Pink Flamingo
When I think of summer time and bbqs I always think of watermelon! It’s such a refreshing and hydrating fruit that is synonymous with summer time! So, I thought up a yummy mocktail that is sure to please!
All you need is:
- Sparkling water
- Raw sugar (for the rim)
In a pitcher, mash watermelon into a slurpy like consistency
Add fresh mint
Pour in sparkling water and mix
For the sugar rimmed glass, simply get a paper towel moist, rub across the rim and dip into sugar you have poured onto a plate.
Pour the mixture, add some more mint for garnish and enjoy!
Tip: if you want a juice like consistency versus a slushy, simply strain and serve
Bonus tip: freeze for a real slushy feel! Kids LOVE it!
2.) summer sunset
For this drink you will need to make each drink separately so as to create the sunset illusion. You’ll need
- Coconut water
- Pineapple juice
Simply layer your fruit
Mix your coconut water and pineapple juice
Add a squeeze of lime
Pour and prepare to be refreshed!
3.) create your own!
There’s NO limit to what you can do! It’s also super fun for kids and it’s a way for them to pitch in at your next family gathering. Have fun!
