Wondering what my favorite of the Mocktails from Mocktails Inc has been so far? The La Vida Loca Mockarita really impressed me, with its bold flavor profile and its ability to adapt to a variety of different recipes that are perfect for the upcoming summer season. If summer was a drink, this Strawberry Lime Punch would be it. It’s perfect for a farm-to-table lunch, as a before-dinner drink, or for Taco Tuesdays.
Since we’re still in strawberry season, the fresh strawberries were at their most delicious. Sweet and juicy, making them the perfect balance for the refreshing lime flavor of The Vida Loca Mockarita. I’ve always liked my drinks to have a bit of fizz to them (because a little fizz makes any drink you’re serving a little more enjoyable not to mention more fun to drink), so I topped this punch off with chilled Perrier. It’s a good idea to keep Perrier or San Pellegrino on hand when you’re planning to entertain or if you like to put together a refreshing beverage while you’re making dinner in the evening.
In order to keep the lime flavors going with this drink, I topped off my Strawberry Lime Punch with a bit of fresh lime zest, but you can also add a wedge of lime to the rim. However, you decide to finish off your drink, adding that little extra attention to detail makes this already delicious beverage even more so.
Strawberry Lime Punch
- 1/2 package of fresh strawberries (washed/sliced)
- 1 bottle Mockarita (Mocktails, Inc)
- 1 bottle Sparkling Water
- 1 lime (for zesting)
Chill both the Mockarita and the sparkling water overnight. Assemble the drink: Add ice, sliced strawberries, add Mockarita to about the halfway point in your glass (I used stemless wine glasses.) Top with sparkling water, and add fresh lime zest before giving the drink a quick stir.
So what drink are you making for your next taco night? This Strawberry Lime Punch gets my vote!
