Who says boozy cocktails should have all the fun? Invite sparkling pink lemonade to the party by serving it in a champagne flute garnished with a strawberry, or celebrate summer with a blackberry sage spritzer sipped from a mason jar with a decorative straw. Sparkling alcohol-free drinks are the perfect way for everyone to cool off and celebrate the flavors of the season. Flavor Fundamentals The key to a sophisticated sparkler is to layer the flavors just like a traditional cocktail. Start with muddled herbs, berries or citrus; add fruit juice puree or nectar and some sparkling water; and finish off with a thin slice of fruit or a few berries. Flavored balsamic vinegars make an easy base for a refreshing lowcalorie alternative to sugary sodas. Fill a tall glass with ice, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of flavored balsamic vinegar (ginger blackberry is FOODIE FOR fantastic), and top it off with club soda. Keeping simple syrup on hand makes it easy to sweeten any chilled beverage. Just heat 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar in a saucepan until dissolved. For an extra dose of flavor, add a mint or rosemary sprig, vanilla bean, ginger slice or piece of citrus rind to the mixture as it cools. Store the infused syrup in the fridge and add a dash to your next drink. Add Some Sparkle “Fizzy” spells fun when it comes to summertime. Add club soda, flavored sparkling water, ginger ale or lemon-lime soda to infused syrups or combinations of muddled herbs and fruits. www.SouthwestOrlandoBulletin.com x July 19 — August 1, 2018 x 5 THOUGHT Summer Sparklers Festive Nonalcoholic Drinks Delight & Refresh by Kirsten Harrington Finish With a Twist Instead of a little pink umbrella, give your drink the finish it deserves with a few raspberries skewered onto a fresh rosemary sprig, a small purple orchid, a wedge of pineapple, or a citrus twist. Simply cut a 3- to 4-inch piece of lemon, lime or orange zest and wrap it around the end of a wooden spoon. Cover it with plastic wrap for an hour until the zest holds its shape. Float the spiral in the drink or hang it on the glass for an elegant garnish. For an added touch, decorate the rim of the glass with colored sanding sugars mixed with crushed cookies, freeze-dried berries or cocoa nibs. Place the ingredients on a plate, wet the glass with water or a lemon wedge, and dip the glass into the mixture, rotating the glass to cover the entire rim, letting it dry before serving. Ice cubes are another way to add a layer of flavor and visual appeal. Berries and water frozen in mini-ice cube trays look stunning in sparkling drinks, and frozen cubes of watermelon or peach puree keep things cool without diluting the flavor. Watermelon Lime Sparkler Ingredients: 1 cup frozen watermelon chunks, seeds removed 2 tablespoons frozen limeade concentrate 1/4 cup lemon-lime soda (Sprite, 7 Up, Sierra Mist) 3 to 4 ice cubes CONTINUED ON PAGE 6 Discover why over 17 million homeowners trust State Farm ® . 2018 With your new home comes new responsibilities – like protecting your new investment with the right amount of homeowners insurance.
