The heat inevitably brings on my cravings for sweet, cold somethings in the afternoon. These generally end in an orange soda, Orangina or a Dr. Pepper. Nothing wrong with having one of those occasionally, but we have a solid 90-100 days of hot ahead of us and not sure that it’s the healthiest coping mechanism. This little concoction whips up with stuff that I actually keep in the house – fresh fruit juice and a topo – and is significantly more guilt-free than the aforementioned options that require a run to the corner store.
makes 1 serving
8oz pineapple juice
8oz mineral water
agave or honey to taste (optional)
- Fill a pint glass or mason jar with ice.
- Add pineapple juice.
- Top off with mineral water.
- Swirl and drink.
You can add a bit of agave or honey if your fruit juice is a little on the tart side. Feel free to sub in whatever juice you have on hand. I’m gonna try peaches next and can’t wait for pear season to roll around.
