While I’ve been sipping water like crazy (or at least trying to), and we’ve even upped the health and looks of our water with fruit and veggie infusions, there’s just something about a gorgeous drink in hand, especially during these hot summer months. 
 
Currently pregnant, I can’t indulge in anything strong. But a summer mocktail recipe definitely does the job of being refreshing and pretty at the same time. And really? That’s what I want anyway!
 
These three easy-to-make summer mocktail recipes are SO great for the whole family.  Plus my kids LOVE them right along with me.

Watermelon Mojito Summer Mocktail

The GREAT thing about this watermelon mojito summer mocktail is that it’s made with fresh watermelon juice which boasts so many health benefits as well, like high amounts of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, antioxidants and lycopene just to name a few. Besides being a super hydrating sip, watermelon juice has other good side effects like detoxification and reducing inflammation. All great reasons to make this a new summer sipping favorite!

(makes approximately 2 drinks)
  • 3 cups chopped watermelon
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • mint leaves
  • ice
  • ginger ale
  • club soda
Instructions
  1. In a blender, blend watermelon and strain through a fine-mesh sieve to create watermelon juice (can be done ahead of time and it stays great overnight in the fridge!).

  3. Add in watermelon juice, filling about 1/2 full.
