We’ve been having a rather mild summer…until now. The past few days it’s been over 100 degrees every single day. When it’s that hot, I just want to stay inside and have myself a spa party for one with something frozen to drink. A few days ago I whipped up some Mimosa Cocktail Slushies with Canada Dry Sparkling Seltzer Water. They’re so good, I had to share!
I found my Canada Dry Sparkling Water 12 packs at Walmart in the flavored water aisle. I had such a hard time deciding what flavors to take home. They all sounded delicious. I grabbed Mandarin Orange and Original flavor.
I love to drink sparkling water. I use it for all kinds of drinks. My favorite is the original flavor. I love adding it to fruit juice. With zero sodium, zero calories and natural flavoring, the bubbly taste is such a great alternative to soft drinks, especially with so many flavors to choose from – Mandarin Orange, Lemon Lime, Mixed Berry, and more!
There’s nothing more relaxing on a hot summer night than a frozen drink in one hand, a good book in the other, and getting your toenails painted. You would not believe the pedicure my husband can give — I swear it’s better than going to the nail salon.
I think my husband was a beautician in an earlier life. He is the one who gives me my crazy hair colors and painted toes to match! I love that he is so good at adding the sparkle for me!
Usually when Nate offers to give me a pedicure, my girls want one at the same time, and he happily does it for all of us! While he’s gathering all his supplies, I make up the drinks. I make Mimosa Slushies for both him and me, and I make mocktail versions for my girls with apple cider instead of champagne.
With sparkling water, these Mimosa Slushies are super simple and so refreshing. They are perfect for any summer party from barbecues to birthdays, and especially brunch!
You can easily make up a tray of glasses full of granita ready in the fridge or freezer to be topped off with champagne or sparkling wine (or even a mocktail version with apple cider!). Your guests will love it!
The granita is made with a bit of lemon juice, orange juice, simple syrup, and Canada Dry Sparkling Water in Mandarin Orange flavor.
After combining the ingredients, let it freeze for 30 minutes. Then, use a fork to break up the frozen crystals every 30 minutes for the first hour. Allow it to freeze for another hour, and break up the crystals again. Then put it back in the freezer for a third hour, and after that, it’s ready to serve!
When the granita is ready, scoop about 1/2 cup into each glass and top them off with some sparkling wine. I used Prosecco.
A delicious frozen treat for adults for those hot summer days.
