Summer is here and I honestly couldn’t be happier. Like most, I love for pool days with the girls, music festivals with #FashionablyBae and unwinding with friends for a summer BBQ on our rooftop. Let’s be honest, I’d be pretty cool with Mother Nature if she just decided to let it be summer all year round.
One of my favorite recipes to whip up no matter the summer occasion is a light & refreshing Moscow Mule. This is actually #FashionablyBae’s favorite cocktail (he will literally only drink it in a copper mug) so it’s safe to say I’ve become quite the mixologist at our summer shindigs. To cut down on the sugar and add an interesting twist, I’ve been swapping out my favorite lemon-lime soda for the Lemon-Lime variety of Aquafina Sparkling and y’all – it is SO good. Summer isn’t just about the fun – I gotta keep my health in check to. Aquafina Sparkling has 0 calories, 0 grams of sugar and 0 artificial flavors. You’re welcome.
This year, we have a ton of things planned and I’m pretty pumped to live one of the best summers ever. Is it too early to claim it? Not only did I just get back from Paris and Mexico this month but we already have a few pool parties and concerts lined up for the next month. I think you can probably bet on the fact that I’ll be whipping up this delish cocktail for my friends all summer long.
In addition to the Lemon Lime variety, there are a ton of other yummy flavors I can’t wait to pick up for our next summer activity (can’t wait to try the Mango Pineapple with a delish summer salad or the and Black Cherry Dragon fruit in a sangria punch).
If you want to join in on the summer fun (you know you do), you can pick up the latest flavors of Aquafina Sparkling at a Target near you. They are hosting tastings and samplings of Aquafina Sparkling in various Target locations across the country so make sure you check it out next time you’re at Target (which, if you’re anything like me, will be 2-3 times this week)
