Drinking plenty of water is a basic (and important) eat clean rule. But what if you want to treat yourself to a thirst quencher with some flavor and spark? Reaching for a bottle of sparkling juice may be a better choice than soda, but making-it-yourself is an even tastier option. You’re in control with MIY sparkling juice, free to create your own signature drink. No recipe required, just a few quick tips.
- Start with antioxidant-packed, high flavor juices. Try acai, pomegranate, cherry or fresh squeezed citrus juice.
- Top with sparkling water, club soda or seltzer. Experiment to find the proportion of water to juice that suits your taste. Use more water than juice to keep calories in check.
- Add a squeeze of lemon or lime to boost flavor.
Using the juice of seasonal fruits is a real treat. Right now citrus fruit is at its peak. Pick up some blood oranges and try my favorite sparkling juice of the season- Blood Orange Sparkler. Simply mix equal parts fresh squeezed blood orange juice and grapefruit sparkling water. Sip and repeat.
