Wellness Wednesday: Summatime Juice Cocktails

healthy juice cocktails, itsy bitsy indulgences

Two of my favorite indulgences: Champagne + Mexican food. The two things I missed most when I was pregnant: champagne + a refreshing margarita. Go figure.

Last summer, having been pregnant with little miss, I wasn’t able to indulge in a refreshing summer cocktail… so, this summer, I’m naturally making up for lost time…. yet, trying to be as “healthy” about it as possible. When Pressed Juicery’s seasonal juice, Pineapple Ginger Lemonade, was released, I had to try to incorporate it into some of my favorite cocktails. I always love getting TJ involved in these experiments, as it was always something we loved doing together… so this one was no exception. After a couple failed attempts at mixing just the right ingredients, we finally settled on the perfect combination… you know, that crisp and refreshing “ahhh” moment you take your first sip of a goooood margarita. Annnnnd because I could’t leave out my other favorite…. champagne, we added a fun little twist to a brunch-time mimosa.

Happy sipping all!
