Perfect summer afternoons and evenings are characterized by warm sunshine, good company and, of course, a few tasty flavours to celebrate the season. Think energizing citrus, sweet strawberry and juicy peach—the fruits of summer. Even better if they come in a refreshing cocktail. The good news is that the perfect summer drink does exist. It’s Canadian, has no sugar and—most importantly—is delicious. Because what’s a summer beverage if you can’t feel good about it?
While it’s hard to pass up a sugary summer beverage—looking at your sangria—the truth is it’s easy to feel guilty when you’re nursing a headache and can’t enjoy your day. Which is why opting for summer sippers that limit the sugar and focus on great flavour is key to enjoying your evening—and the next day too. A simple concoction of premium vodka, bubbly soda and natural flavours is all you need to quench your thirst and capture that festive spirit without any summertime sadness. Less sugar and fewer headaches? That means more time to get back to your social calendar.
