Let’s take a trip down memory lane. Back to summer when you were a kid, when the days were long, filled with laughs, snacks and tropical punch free-flowing! Well, get ready for an upgrade with this Tropical Sangria Mocktail.
When Health-Ade told me their new flavor of kombucha was tropical punch, with notes of pineapple and mango, I about fell to the floor with excitement! Not only is pineapple my favorite fruit, but tropical punch booch, GUYS, this is the best thing since sliced bread! The heat of summer has hit, and the days are long, meaning there are more hours in the day to plan for picnics, days by the river and hours spent sipping tropical punch Health-Ade - and what better way to enjoy family time than with a delicious non-alcoholic beverage like this Tropical Sangria Mocktail.
Two years ago, my summer looked different, there was an ocean and a pool involved. This year, since we moved back to rural Montana, we have an abundance of creeks, ponds, and rivers to enjoy a picnic by. Landscape stretching as far as the eye can see in this big sky state. Scenery changes, moments change but the one constant of summer that stays with me from June into Labor Day weekend is the desire to be outside, 99.99% of the day.
The inviting summer breeze bouncing from mountains beckons me to the creek for my evening walks with my dog. The water dances in the eddies and bubbles to nature’s music. With the flick of a wrist, the snap of the Health-Ade bottle opens and magically the easiest Tropical Sangria Mocktail is made. A perfect complement to a summer picnic!
When I think of Sangria, I think of sweet fruit, light tang and a whole lot of flavor. When the new Health-Ade Tropical Punch Kombucha was released I knew that this flavor would pair perfectly with more fruit, a touch of tang and those delish notes of tea from Health-Ade!
Slice some fruit and let’s assemble!
One of my favorite things about sangria is how easy it is to make! You take your favorite flavors and marinate them together to form arguably the most delicious drink ever! Another reason that I find sangria to be the best summer drink is that you control your own destiny, whether you want to add wine, or not the possibility is up to you. In the case of the Tropical Sangria Mocktail, I felt that alcohol would hinder those sweet and sour notes in the pineapple and mango fruit punch flavor in Health-Ade.
Tag me in your summer adventures, so I can see what you’re doing this summer!
