Can you believe its already March 15?! Where did this month go…and more importantly, where did our winter go?? The mountains of snow from last year are becoming just a distant
memory nightmare as we are about to turn the corner and head into spring. Time to celebrate, and what better way than to raise a glass of cheer on St. Patrick’s Day!? With this variety of Sparkling Ice Flavored Waters & Teas, the combinations are endless.
I buy these tall bottles all the time at the grocery store-typically for less than $1.00 each-they have a great, bold flavors , zero calories and are delicious served with, or without alcohol. Rather then your standard tonic water or club soda for mixers, these colorful sparkling waters add a punch to any beverage…or punch!
Here are a few green recipes to try…just in time for the Wearing ‘O The Green!
1 oz vodka
1 1/2 oz Sour Apple Pucker
1 1/2 oz Sparkling Ice Crisp Apple
2 cups ice
Apple wedges for garnish
Fill a martini shaker with ice. Pour in the vodka, sour apple pucker and juice into shaker. Stir ingredients, then pour into martini glass. Garnish with an apple wedge. Enjoy!
Sparkling Ice Lemon Lime
Fill mason jar 1/3 way with Sparkling Ice Lemon Lime. Fill to 2/3 with Pineapple Juice. Top with two scoops Lime Sherbet. YUM.
1/2 oz. fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 3/4 0z. Sparkling Ice Lemon Tea
1 1/4 oz. Bourbon Whiskey
1/4 oz. simple syrup or 1 packet Splenda
Place all ingredients in mixing cup or shaker. Stir and strain over ice. Pour into glass. Garnish with lemon slice and cherry.
(I was skeptical too, thinking how does a cupcake rise without eggs? So I made them. They are light and fluffy and very delish : )
1 box any brand white cake mix
12 oz. room temperature Sparkling Ice Lemon Lime
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin pan with paper liners. In a large mixing bowl, stir cake mix and soda with wire whisk until blended and most of the lumps are gone. Bake for 18-20 minutes until cupcakes are springy and toothpicks come out clean. Allow to cool completely and frost with your favorite vanilla frosting. Decorate with some shamrocks and you’re ready to party! For more party recipes, click here: Recipes-Sparkling Ice. Have a fun-filled St. Patty’s Day everyone. And don’t partake in too much of the Drinking ‘O The Green if you have to work on Friday! Susan
