I recently was introduced to Belvoir Fruit Farms and their lemonades. Their lemonades are all made with lots of real fruit juice, blended with sparkling Belvoir spring water. They’re made from all-natural ingredients and contain nothing artificial. Plus they have a bunch of cool flavors! They have Elderflower Lemonade, Elderflower & Rose Lemonade, Pomegranate & Raspberry Lemonade, Lime & Lemongrass Lemonade, and Ginger Beer. I had an opportunity to try 4 of these and they were definitely different (in a good way).
The first one I tried was the Lime & Lemongrass. It tasted like a very fresh lemon lime soda. All of the lemonades are “gently bubbling,” so they aren’t as fizzy as soda, but a little more so than sparkling water. One of my favorite things about it was that it made my brain THINK it was enjoying soda when in fact I was enjoying a much healthier and natural drink.
For the Elderflower & Rose lemonade I decided to try and make one of the cocktails that they included a recipe for in the package I was sent. They made theirs with the Elderflower lemonade, but I was just drawn to the pink of the Elderflower & Rose. I mixed it with some champagne (that had a screw off top – what is up with that?!) and it was a great refreshing cocktail. I really think that ANY of these lemonades would be a perfect mixer with champagne.
I can’t wait to try making some other summer cocktails with these lemonades. I know that it is officially fall, but here in the Sunshine State its going to be feeling like summer for at least another month before that cool fall air rolls into town.
