Hello, summer! Warmer days call for refreshing and delicious mocktails, or cocktails… Bonus points if you can make them semi-healthy too. That’s why we’ve crafted the perfect summer cocktail for all of your summer Friday happy hours or weekend dinner parties. The combination of lime and grapefruit give a tart, punchy flavor while offering a dose of antioxidants and vitamin C to boost the immune system. We’ve also added LMNT’s grapefruit electrolyte powder for an extra grapefruit-y flavor and the added benefit of hydration. LMNT powders have the perfect balance of sodium, potassium, and magnesium for proper hydration that we all need. It’s not enough to drink a glass of water; our cells require electrolytes and in the right amount. If you choose to add alcohol to your mocktail, we like to believe that a packet of LMNT cancels out any negative effects of the tequila, but don’t quote us on that.
Enjoy this delicious cocktail with zero guilt.
