Spring is almost sprung, which means that the days will be longer and less cold. With warmer temperatures comes more time with your girlfriends, as well as the need for drinks that satisfy and quench your thirst when you get together—and should I mention the drinks should also taste good? I was given the task of creating a “mocktail” (as in no liquor of course) using Lipton’s new bottled teas: Lipton Diet Green Tea Honey Ginseng and Lipton 100 Calorie Half & Half (Tea & Lemonade), perfect for those spring nights with your girlfriends!
One of my goals this year is to completely cut out soda. And while I am still working at it, I am looking for ways to incorporate healthier options that are better for me. So this mocktail recipe challenge was right up my alley!
It’s pretty simple to create and tastes wonderful. My eight year old daughter loved it as well. You will need a blender to create it.
Here’s the recipe for my Lipton CubeRita Mocktail:
- 1 16.9 fl oz bottle of Lipton Diet Green Tea Honey Ginseng
- 1 16.9 fl oz bottle of Lipton 100 Calorie Half & Half (Tea & Lemonade)
- 1 cup of ice
- 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- Blend together until thick yet smooth and pourable (like a margarita). It will make 4-5 glasses full of CubeRita!
- Put in a glass and add chopped pieces of oranges, melon, papaya—any type of fruit that you enjoy.
It’s an easy breezy recipe that is fun and festive and perfect for a Girl’s Night Out.
Try it for yourself and let me know what you think!
