Festive and Flavorful Fruit Spritzers
Deep blue, ruby red, rich purple. Colorful, sweet and a little tangy, fruit spritzers are a delicious and festive way to enjoy the holidays. That’s what makes these spritzers Dr. Galland’s favorite drinks. He’s always stocking up on sparkling water and fruit concentrates, and mixing up a new concoction with great flavor. Dr. Galland likes them because they are refreshing, contain no alcohol, and have no added sugar or artificial sweeteners. It’s a wonderful way to get antioxidants into a pleasant drink.
The recipe for a fruit spritzer is simple: sparkling water poured over ice in a tall glass, with a little juice concentrate or juice mixed well. Add a squeeze of lemon or lime for some refreshing tartness.
Basic Ingredients for a Fruit Spritzer
- Sparkling Mineral Water or Seltzer
- Fruit Juice Concentrate such as Pomegranate, Cherry, Blueberry
- 1/4 Cup of Your Favorite Fruit Juice
- Slice of Lemon or Lime
The whole family can enjoy making these spritzers, and they are kid-friendly. Fruit Spritzers are a really good alternative to soft drinks and alcoholic beverages. Try making your own special variety of spritzer, and enjoy!
