Summer is right around the corner and what better way to enjoy the warmer days to come, than with this Cranberry Spritz Mocktail? Refreshing, full of flavor and non-alcoholic!
The Cranberry Spritz is super easy to make – it’s just sparkling water, cranberry juice, lime and a bit of maple syrup for sweetness.
Cranberry juice and a little maple syrup give this mocktail a good balance of bitter and sweet. It’s better to not use cranberry juice cocktail. The extra sugar in cranberry juice cocktail is usually filled with unrefined sugar that can spike your blood sugars.
Real cranberry juice is full of antioxidants that can help rid your body of free radicals. There are also several B vitamins in cranberry juice, along with potassium, folate, magnesium and copper – all minerals that our bodies needs! Aside from the minerals this drink will give you, it’s non-alcoholic. There are so many benefits to cutting alcohol. If not permanently, even cutting alcohol for a few days or weeks can be good for you. Some short-term benefits of giving up alcohol are, better sleep, weight-loss, and lower blood sugar levels.
If you’re doing brunch for Mother’s Day next weekend, add this Cranberry Spritz Mocktail to your menu!
