A number of clients have been asking about what they can drink while on vacation that’s a little more fun and interesting than plain water and herbal tea!  Since summer is winding down and school is about to begin, here’s a festive and refreshing mocktail for you to try as you make the most of what’s left of summer vacation.

Sparkling Ruby Red Mocktail:

  • 1 fresh ruby red grapefruit, juiced
  • San Pellegrino (or your favorite brand of sparkling water), chilled
  • 1 drop of liquid stevia, for sweetness (if desired)
  • Crushed ice
  • Fresh lavender or rosemary for garnish


1. Fill your fanciest glass halfway with crushed ice
2. Next, fill the glass halfway up with the ruby red grapefruit juice
3. Fill the rest with chilled sparkling water
4. Garnish with a slice of grapefruit & a sprig or 2 of fresh lavender or rosemary


Be Well,
