It’s always been my beverage of choice throughout the day but in the last couple of months, I felt like I needed a bit of variety and added seltzer water to the rotation.Sorrel Lemonade-1-5 On my “diet days” I would also add it to my juices to water it down a bit; there’s something about the bubbles that makes me feel like I’m cheating when I’m not.  Sorrel Lemonade-1Since I’m always looking to cut calories where I can, I picked up a few boxes of Canada Dry Sparkling Seltzer Water at Walmart; it’s all natural with no sweeteners or sodium and has zero calories so it’s the perfect addition with zero guilt! Sorrel Lemonade-1-3 Instead of drinking a full glass of juice, I will pour half and fill the rest with seltzer to create a light spritzer that’s refreshing. I’ve even added a bit of bubbly to my quintessential summer lemonade that I always make when entertaining just to switch things up a bit. I served up a Lime-ade and a Sorrel Lemonade; that’s right, sorrel isn’t for just Christmas! For the Lime-ade I added Lemon Lime sparkling water and I used the Mandarin Orange sparkling water in my Sorrel Lemonade.Sorrel Lemonade-1-4

I had a friend over this past weekend and I served small bites along with the Sorrel Lemonade and Limeade and she loved it! Nothing like girl chat over drinks!

    Kelly, sorrel is also known as hibiscus. Have you heard of that?
