Summer Mocktails

Summer just requires delicious beverages. If you can make them healthy, all the better. These are some cool mocktail recipes we hope our Country Club Vista community members in Flagstaff, Arizona, will enjoy.

Virgin Blackberry-Lime Margarita

Let’s improve on the margarita with this splendid and healthy substitute.

Gather These Ingredients

  • 6 cups of water
  • 3 cups of fresh blackberries
  • 1 cup of pure cane sugar
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • Orange wedges and fresh blackberries
  • Fruity drink beverage umbrellas

How to Prepare

Place blackberries and 1 cup of water in a blender. Mix until they reach a smooth texture, and then pour through a fine strainer into a large pitcher. Stir in the other 5 cups of water with sugar and lime juice until granules have dissolved. Pour the mocktail over ice and garnish with orange wedges, fresh blackberries and a colorful cocktail umbrella. It is that simple!

Mock Cherry Mojitos

Mojitos are all the rage on cruise ships, all-inclusive resorts and trendy bars. This mocktail is a new take!

Gather These Ingredients

  • 1 pound of frozen, pitted cherries
  • 3 cups of crushed ice
  • ½ cup of fresh mint leaves
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of water
  • 3 limes (juiced)
  • 2 oranges sliced into wedges
  • Maraschino cherries
  • Fruity drink beverage umbrellas

How to Prepare

Stir the water, sugar and lime juice in a saucepan over medium heat until the mixture reaches a full boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and stir for about five minutes. Remove from heat and let the lime juice syrup cool.

In a blender, mix the cherries, ice, mint and the lime juice syrup until smooth. Simply pour into glasses and garnish with orange wedges, maraschino cherries and a fun umbrella.
