Notes

  • If possible, use all organic ingredients.
  • NOTE: The brand of sparkling water that I buy now is by Spindrift. They use real fruit and don’t add sugar. One of the main reasons I switched, though, is because La Croix registered pretty high for forever chemicals. And, if I can make changes to better my overall health then that is what I am going to do.
  • Spindrift Flavors: Lime, raspberry, and mint pair very well with cherry. That is why I have specifically chosen these flavors for this recipe. However, if you want to branch out and try other flavors you can. Other flavors that pair well with cherry are: strawberry, peach and lemon. So, there are some additional Spindrift flavors that will work here as well. (Switching from the previous brand to this new brand, there is no major difference in the taste of the mocktail. The Spindrift flavors listed in the recipe are not overpowering in any way, so you still get the delicious cherry flavor to come through. These flavors taste amazing with this recipe).
