Hey Sixers! Jess here with the perfect Fourth of July mocktail. If you’re like me and your hangovers last a solid three days, you probably try to avoid over consumption of alcohol. During the holidays, especially with friends like Tay, it’s not always the easiest to go unnoticed while sipping on Coke Zero instead of White Claw. However, I have come up with the perfect solution! This bubbly strawberry lemonade looks like a cocktail, but tastes like summer heaven.
1/2C Fresh Lemon Juice
Bottle of Lemon Sparkling Water
Food processor or blender
In a small sauce pan, bring sugar and water to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Blend strawberries together until smooth in a food processer. Mix strawberry puree into the sugar water. Add lemon juice. Stir well. Pour lemonade over ice, only filling drinking glasses halfway. Top each glass with sparkling water and garnish with a lemon wedge.
And there you have it! The perfect mocktail to sip during any holiday event, leaving you headache free.
