I have been so incredibly thirsty these past few weeks, I have begun referring fondly to this stage of my pregnancy as my “Thirsty Third” trimester. I am constantly searching for new ways to meet my hydration needs without getting bored. I love to use sparkling water to create “mocktails” and change things up.
I was blessed with a beautiful baby shower this weekend (pictures to follow), and Old City Hall in Bay City, MI, offered one of my favorite “mocktails” to our guests. I tried to re-create it at home, and I think I got pretty close! I am currently enjoying a few while watching the Bachelor on DVR. They taste so good, I have to share!
- 6-10 Fresh blackberries
- 1-2 Slices of cucumber, thin
- Lime Juice, splash
- 5-6 Fresh mint leaves
- Soda Water
- Muddle the blackberries, mint, and cucumber at the bottom of a pint glass
- Once muddled, fill the glass part way with ice.
- Fill the glass with sparking water and finish with a splash of lime juice.
