It’s smoldering hot and we are thirsty! Some day I feel like I just can’t get enough to drink! I do try to lean to water, but this girl loves flavor, and often, water just doesn’t give me that mouth watering effect I’m looking for. Bland is boring!
So this week I’ve spent some time experimenting with the NEW KraftHeinz Liquid Enhancers. There are some fantastic Summer Refreshment recipes on the Kraft Canada website that you can check out too, but I wanted to share with you my favorite creation that I came up with at home. It’s so simple!
We’ll call this recipe:
Sweet & Salty Strawberry Lemonade
- 1 slice Lemon
- 3 strawberries
- pink himalayan salt
- 4 or 5 ice cubes
- bubbly water, regular water, tonic water or club soda. They all would work great.
- Country Time Lemonade Liquid Enhancer
This is a drink that you can have together in just a few minutes. Once you’ve assembled your gear… (or the above mentioned ingredients, plus a glass, a knife, a cutting board and a straw start with rimming the glass.
To rim, take your lemon slice and run it around the rim of the glass, this gives the salt something to stick to. Then dip your glass into a saucer that you have poured the salt onto. Wiggle the glass in the salt, to ensure it is completely salted.
Flip it up, then add the slice of lemon and a strawberry as garnish.
Next comes your ice. Add as much or as little as you like. Personally, I’m a middle of the road kinda gal. I don’t want my glass so full of ice that I end up with a watered down drink. But I want it to be nice and cold. (Hint! – Freeze left over lemon slices or strawberries to add a bit of excitement to your ice!)
Next up, chop up a few strawberries and add them to your glass. You could also add blueberries, raspberries, cranberries. Use what you have!
Now you get to SQUEEZE! Grab your KraftHeinz Country Time Lemonade Liquid Enhancer and squeeze it into your glass! I like three squirts, but you will have to test it to find your perfect amount. Start with one and go from there.
Then all you need to do is fill up the glass with your bubbly (or non bubbly) liquid of choice.
These KraftHeinz Liquid Enhancers can be picked up at any leading grocery store, and compared to buying pre-made drinks, they’re much less expensive. I now keep one with me at all times, for when I’m filling up my water bottle. I’d love to hear in a comment below what your favorite flavor combination is!
