Berries are in season mid-summer and a great way to enjoy them is in a cool drink. I picked up some fresh Driscoll’s berries at Publix and was inspired to create a mocktail, perfect on a hot day. I specifically seek out Driscoll’s berries if local are not available. They use high quality practices to grow delicious berries and none of their berries are GMO (genetically modified) or irradiated. That gives me peace of mind
Raspberries are low in sugar, high in fiber, and a good source of Vitamin C. They also contain a ton of antioxidants which fight free radicals in our bodies and help lower inflammation.
To make this drink, pour 8 ounces of club soda (pure carbonated water) into a glass. Add ice if you like. Grab a handful of fresh mint leaves and fresh red raspberries. Wash thoroughly, then toss into glass. Find a cozy spot outdoors and enjoy!
