Spring is coming and with it, the warmer weather. That means more outside activities… Woohoo! Luckily, we live in an area where there are a lot of parks. There is one in specific that my family and I absolutely love. It is called Great Falls Park, and is a small National Park Service site here in Virginia.
It is only 20 minutes from our home, so as soon as the weather starts warming up we go there for picnics and hikes. When my family has a picnic everyone brings something different – some bring sandwiches, others bring chips and dips, others bring fruit and cakes, and others bring the drinks.
We have lunch together, listen to music, kids run around, and once we are done eating we have one or two very intense soccer games, and we go for walks around the park.
On our last picnic, I was in charge of the drinks. I wanted to bring more than water and juices. Since my mom and I love sparkling water I decided to make something completely new, refreshing and delicious. That is how I came up with …
Sparkling Black Cherry Dragonfuit Lemonade
with bites of Strawberry
You only need 4 ingredients to make this refreshing Sparkling Black Cherry Dragonfruit Lemonade with bites of Strawberry
Aquafina Sparkling Water black cherry dragonfruit flavor, fresh strawberries, limes, and sugar.
I wanted to try one of the two new flavors Aquafina Sparkling is launching on 2017, and it comes in an 8 pack option. The other flavor is Mango Pineapple. Aquafina Sparkling has 0 calories, 0 sugar, and 0 artificial flavors!! and you can find it at your closest Target. Best of all, there will be samplings of Aquafina Sparkling in certain Target locations across the US, so you might be able to taste it before you buy it (Win-Win). To make it even better, I got a Cartwheel offer for you! Which takes 25% off any Aquafina Sparkling 8pk flavor and runs from 5/21 to 6/17!!
You can find the Aquafina Sparkling in the ‘Enhanced water” area… You can also find it on Target.com. With Aquafina Sparkling you will find all you want in an unsweetened sparkling flavored water. It is fun with a hint of flavor! It’s packaging is adorable and at the right price.
Cut the tops off the strawberries –
Half of the strawberries should be cut in small pieces and the other half should be smashed!
Add 1/3 cup of Sugar to the Smashed Strawberries…
You need 4-5 Aquafina Sparkling Waters in black cherry dragonfruit flavor.
Poor the Aquafina Sparkling black cherry dragonfruit Waters into a Jar or Pitcher and then squeeze 2 limes…
After pouring the Aquafina Sparkling Water into the jar, it is time to mix!!
Add the freshly squeezed lime juice, the cut strawberries, and the smashed strawberries with the sugar into the jar.
Place it in the refrigerator to cool while you get ready for the picnic.
This recipe will serve more than 8 people! There will be enough for everyone!
I really hope you guys give this simple and delicious Sparkling Black Cherry Dragonfruit Lemonade with bites of Strawberry a try on your next outing!
