MIxing It Up for Mother’s Day! Cocktails for Today, Mother’s Day + More!

It’s cocktail time. I don’t mean drink it immediately! (Not unless you are reading this and it’s 4:30 PM) It’s time to collect ingredients for your next batch or 3 of cocktails. I was seeking out recipes and someone from Truly Spiked & Sparkling sent me these recipes! They also included information on the brand and also about the newest flavors!! This is a great brand because it’s a flavored mixer that you can sip with or without alcohol!

A survey commissioned by Truly Spiked & Sparkling and conducted online by Harris Poll revealed that 45% of drinkers agreed that following a wellness routine makes it hard to be social because events often revolve around unhealthy food and drink.
Truly is a gluten-free, low-carb, borderline sugar-free, spiked sparkling water with only 100 calories, allowing you to sip without the guilt.

More Truly 101:

All flavors are gluten-free, 100 calories, 2 grams of carbs, 1 gram of sugar, and 5% ABV – the lowest calorie, sugar, and carb level spiked seltzer on the market
– Available in five flavors:
o Lemon & Yuzu – bright citrusy character and juicy tartness (NEW TODAY!)
o Colima Lime – slight tartness with a crisp but subtle sweetness
o Grapefruit & Pomelo – sweet, fresh aroma with slightly sweet and tangy notes
o Pomegranate – clean, crisp and refreshing with a hint of juicy pomegranate
o Sicilian Blood Orange – light citrus sweetness that mingles with the crisp taste of sparkling water
No artificial flavors or sweeteners
– Available nationwide via packs of six 12-ounce bottles (or cans) for an SRP of $9.99 -$10.99. (All prices vary by location)

As drinkers are constantly seeking lower-calorie alcohol options, Truly Spiked & Sparkling would be a natural fit for any stories pegged to spring/summer/warmer weather, healthier beverage choices, go-to post-workout beverages, and more. I also have a huge database of healthier spiked seltzer recipes, perfect for any upcoming cocktail round-ups.
