Summer is the season of love.
A time to fall in love with the outdoors.
A time to fall in love with feeling active and energetic.
A time to fall in love with the simple pleasures in life.
We partnered up with Nestle Pure Life Sparkling Water to help spread the word about how simple it is to bring that extra bit of ‘special’ to summer moments.
If you haven’t tried these delectable, fizzy drinks, you can find them pretty much anywhere (gas stations, grocery stores, Walmart etc). They’re a zero sugar, no sodium, zero sweetener, lightly flavoured sparkling drink. They’re available in a variety of flavours which makes them super versatile to either enjoy on their own or mix into a fun summer beverage:
- NEW triple berry
- Black Cherry
- NEW Cranberry Raspberry
- NEW Pomegranate Lemonade
- Raspberry Lime
- Mango Peach Pineapple
They’re a source of hydration for the entire family: kids see them as an extra special drink because they’re fizzy like soda pop, and they taste great, but they’re devoid of all of the ingredients parents try to avoid giving to young children. They were also idea for our teen who enjoyed them poolside instead of reaching for sugary pops or energy drinks.
We loved serving the flavoured sparkling water to our guests as well because it felt a bit more thoughtful than just serving flat water. We would add some fresh fruit to the bottles or in glasses and find playful ways to serve it. Everyone stayed hydrated in the heat, enjoyed the refreshments and woke up the next day without a hang over!
When girlfriends came over for a play date, and we felt that afternoon energy lull, I served sparkling water for our pick-me-up. The best part is that there’s no spike in your blood sugar so you simply feel refreshed and hydrated.
It honestly doesn’t take much to make summer feel elevated and memorable. It’s about finding the right products that take the “thinking” and “doing” away from you (as mom or hostess) so you can actually enjoy the moments too.
OUR FAVOURITE SUMMER DRINK RECIPE:
(1) Slice a whole fresh watermelon in half
(2) Use a spoon to break up the surface of the sliced watermelon
(3) Use a hand mixer to puree the top three to four inches of melon, inside the peel (being careful not to get to close to the white part of the flesh)
(4) Scoop some of the fresh watermelon into glasses to make room …
(5) Add Nestle Pure Life Flavoured Sparkling Water (we liked the Pomegranate Lemonade) and stir!
(6) Garnish with fresh berries and/or pomegranate seeds and serve!
