Thirst Quenching Essentials: Summertime Gems

Every season has its signature sips and tastes that reflect the excited feelings we get as changes occur within our surroundings. Summer is a time of bursting energy, growth, and action. In turn, the flavours we expect are bright and refreshing with plenty of seasonal ingredients involved. During this time, we want to have things that are light and full of fresh flavours. In this ongoing series we will take you on an adventure from season to season with wonderful drinks to compliment your day. Let’s kick off summertime with FRESH!

Today’s Terrific Trio

Raspberry Sparkling Lemonade

Lemonade and summer are simply an inseparable pair. For whatever reason, we just crave this crisp and vibrant drink when the heat begins to rise and the sun begins to shine! Sparkling lemonade is a versatile addition to your summer roster as it’s a ready-to-go standalone drink or can be added to others for a bit of vibrancy.  

Tip: Add a little mulled fruit to your drinks for a seasonal twist! 

Cucumber Water Melon Sparkling

Our fan fave sparkling waters are known for their unique flavours and refreshing taste! They serve as the perfect go-to drink on the rocks or as a companion to all your cocktails and mocktails. Today’s top pick is a no-brainer when it comes to summer tastes. This thirst-quenching bev’ has the subtle taste of watermelon and the clean aroma of cucumber to give you a nice cooling sensation as you sip away in the warmth of the sun. 

Tip: Pair with fresh cucumbers and lemons for added freshness. 

Summertime is all about fresh, crisp flavours. Adding some zest to your dishes and drinks can make a huge difference in achieving balance in your recipes. A spritz of zing or a splash of tang will awaken your senses and have you salivating over what’s to come! Having lime juice ready saves time and gives you a steady supply to use during the season.  

Tip: Use it for anything from limeade to tea.
