Want a Tasty Non-Alcoholic Beverage? Check Out What You Can Do with Crystal Light “On the Go” Packets!
Are you tired of sodas that are full of chemicals? Do you want something tasty to drink that doesn’t include alcohol? I would love to have a great tasting beverage that’s not chock full of sugar — or fizz—that actually tastes good. I think that summer 2011 is the time for change.
Here’s the change I made: Crystal Light. Actually Crystal Light has been a staple in my house for several years. These on-the-go packets though make things a snap when you want something with flavor but don’t want to pay the cost for expensive fizzy drinks that have a lot of the 2C’s– calories and carbonation.
Glam Media offered me an opportunity to get creative in my drink-making with Crystal Light. No alcohol– just create something interesting. PIECE OF CAKE!! I got a box of Crystal Light On The GO Packets in Iced Tea Flavor and also a single packet of 4 flavors to play with. I didn’t mix those flavors since I wanted to keep them true to the real flavor but I did get creative with what I mixed in.
Here’s the drink I created with a base of Iced Tea with Lemon,
natural tart cherry juice and guava nectar or juice along with garnish!
In a small pitcher, mix in the following
1 Packet of Crystal Light On the Go Packet – Iced Tea with Lemon
1/4 cup Tart Cherry Juice (tons of anti-oxidants in this.)
1/4 cup Guava Juice or Guava Nectar. (If you use the nectar, use 1/2 the amount)
1.5 cup Sparkling or flat water. I used some almost flat sparkling water– you couldn’t taste or see any bubbles.
If you use sparkling water, you will get that fizz. I am not overly fond of fizz but it works with drinks like this.
Mix well in the pitcher and if you can, add in a couple handfuls of ice cubes and keep stirring till the mix is chilled.
Fill a tall glass with ice cubes. I added in sliced strawberries, 2 raspberries and a slice of lemon into the glass before pouring the mixture over it. I garnished the drink with a lemon slice and a couple of colorful straws- one which got threaded with a raspberry.
I didn’t even get to drink it (ok– I had one tiny sip). My significant other grabbed it, took a sip and he loved it. So he marched off with the drink– which was gone in less than 15 minutes. He didn’t even know it was healthy with Vitamin C and lots of anti-oxidants.
Make sure you follow Crystal Light on Facebook and get creative with their Flavor over Fizz Challenge. You don’t need sodas to have a great summer beverage!!
