Mock-tails

12 Apr

Enjoy these refreshing drinks. Mix ‘em up & serve ‘em up at your next ‘mock-tail’ party!

Mint Lime Aide:
1/4 cup loosely packed mint leaves
1 teaspoon of xylitol
1 1/2 oz. lime juice
soda water to fill.  In a sturdy glass muddle mint with xylitol.  Add ice, lime juice and soda water.  Stir well. I usually refer to this drink jokingly as the ‘No-jito’ because it is so similar to the popular mojitos.

Cucumber water:

1 small English cucumber, thinly sliced                                              

2 quarts of filtered water

Ice

Add the cucumbers to the water and let chill in the refrigerator for one hour.

Orange & Cucumber water:

Same as above – just add orange. Also very good with lime or grapefruit!

 

 

Iced Hibiscus Tea:
1/2 cup dried hibiscus flowers
2 cups hot water
¼ cup xylitol (or use other natural sweeteners like stevia, honey or agave nectar)

In a French press steep hibiscus with hot water for 15 to 20 minutes.  Pour off tea and add sugar, stirring to dissolve.  Let cool.  Serve over ice.

Virgin Pina Colada

1 cup of pineapple

1 cup coconut milk

Ice to blend/taste

½ scoop Jay Robb vanilla protein powder

Blend until desired consistency.

 Twists:

1/2 cup juice

1 cup seltzer, club soda or sparkling water

Add ice, garnish of choice and serve in a beautiful glass.
