'Tis the season of grilling and keeping cool, and we've teamed up with Dasani Sparkling to mix up something fresh. For a crisp and guaranteed delish drink for summer, this Citrus Strawberry Mocktail recipe has turned into our favorite. In need of a thirst quencher that can stand front and center with some ribs for a BBQ? Just want something to cool you down? Nothing is easier than adding a splash of freshness with Dasani's new sparkling water, available now in sleek slim cans at Kroger for $2.99. All you have to do is add cut up strawberries, lemon and lime slices for a pitcher full of zing.
You can switch up the berries or add orange slices, as the beauty of this mix is its versatility. Try adding the no-calorie fizz in any flavor that tickles your fancy - your choice of Dasani's 6 refreshing infusions add a splash of flavor to any blend. Lemon, lime, berry, raspberry lemonade, black cherry or tropical pineapple will compliment any fruit combo perfectly, and with no added juice or artificial flavor, it's guilt-free and will get your taste buds going. Sip this drink chilled on a hot day (or any day, really), and you too will #RaiseaGlassToSummerMocktails!
