Pineapple Strawberry Sparkle
2 cups Organic Pineapple Just Juice
4 -6 cups ginger ale or sparkling water
2 limes, quartered and small handful of mint (4-6 leaves)
½ cup NOW® Xylitol Powder or packed brown sugar
1 ½ cups chopped strawberries
Squeeze limes into a large pitcher; add squeezed lime quarters. Add mint and sugar or xylitol; mash with a wooden spoon until mint is bruised and sweetener is dissolved.
In a blender, puree strawberries and pineapple, or mash in a bowl. Stir to combine.
When ready to serve, add juice, soda or sparkling water; serve over ice.
Home Chef Tip: This drink is gorgeous on its own but is so fun to garnish. Cut a slice of pineapple, a slice of strawberry, lime, and mint, and spear with a wooden kabob stick to give it a lot of visual interest! You can also sugar the rims by dipping the rim of the glass in bowl of water and then a bowl of sugar or clear sprinkles. Let sugar/sprinkles dry completely to glass before adding the mocktail.
