Not long ago I was having dinner with my hubbie at True Food Kitchen in Denver. If you’ve never experienced this place, you’ve got to try it!
One of my favorite things about True Food Kitchen is that everything on the menu makes you feel healthy but not in a way that excludes those people who might not dork out the way you will over a fresh-pressed kale juice.
Speaking of dorking out…Check out a picture of our “His and Her’s Cocktails” here.
The funny part about this kale juice is that I actually felt a little buzz from it. I don’t know if it was my mind playing tricks on me or the pure goodness of the juice, but it doesn’t really matter. I felt like I was having an adult beverage without the negative side effects of alcohol. It was a total win win.
This summer I’ve been inspired to create more yummy non-alcoholic drinkables so that even if you choose not to drink a cocktail, you can still get excited about other options. Sometimes when you’re cleansing and everyone else around you is drinking wine, beer and margs, you need to have your own special tonic.
I hope this Watermelon Summer Spritzer does that for you. It’s cooling, hydrating, thirst-quenching and delightfully sweet.
Enjoy and please let me know what you think of it in the comment section below. I love hearing for you.
With love and watermelon kisses,
Watermelon Summer Spritzer
