Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade Cocktails and a Giveaway

These sparkling pink raspberry lemonade cocktails are delicious, refreshing and easy. They make a great drink to serve at a summer gathering and can be made as a cocktail or mocktail. Be sure to check out the recipe at the end of this post and enter my giveaway for a $100 gift card! 

One of my favorite parts of planning summer menus are the drinks. I love finally getting to use my fancy cocktails glasses, pitchers, ice cubes, and serving trays. I always try to make a colorful drink that looks elegant and festive. These sparkling cocktails are just that. They are also really easy to make, with just a few simple ingredients. All you need is some fresh mint, raspberries, sparkling water or wine, and Simply Lemonade® with Raspberry.

 

Simply Lemonade with Raspberry is naturally pink, which makes for a beautiful cocktail. I like using Simply Beverages™ because they are all made with real fruit juice (not from concentrate) and don’t contain any added preservatives, colors, or artificial flavors. Of course, my favorite one is Simply Lemonade with Raspberry because it is pink! And I love lemonade and raspberries in the summer. Both flavors are so light and refreshing on a warm summer day.

Simply Lemonade with Raspberry is made from simple ingredients: pure filtered water, not-from-concentrate juices and purees, cane sugar and natural flavors. You can find Simply Lemonade with Raspberry at most grocery stores nationwide, but here is also a helpful store locator.

I’m excited to serve these cocktails in a few weeks!
