My mom tells me that I have been a social creature since birth. I always made friends wherever I was even as a toddler. As a teenager, I had a very close circle of girlfriends, many of whom I consider close friends still today (let’s not talk about how many EONS it’s been since graduation!).
After I had my daughter, my friendships became the way for me to not only keep sane, but find my way back to remembering the woman I was and not just the mommy I am. Girl’s Night Out became a staple and a way for my friends and I to let loose, relax and enjoy a little girl talk…without having to nag a husband or chase a toddler.
Being that this is L.A., we’re spoiled by this perfect weather. In thinking of my girlfriends, I created a fabulous Mocktail for your girl’s night using the Lipton Diet Green Tea Honey Ginseng.
Sassy Sparkling Tea Mocktail (serving size: 8 oz, serves two)
1- 16.9 oz bottle of Lipton Diet Green Tea Honey Ginseng
1/4 cup Apple Juice
1/4 cup Sparkling Water (can substitute w/ club soda)
1 Honey Crisp Apple
5-6 Mint sprigs
- Rinse 4 mint sprigs and toss into the bottom of a cocktail shaker
- Pour bottle of Lipton Diet Green Tea Honey Ginseng into the shaker
- Use a muddler to crush mint for about 1-2 mins. Set shaker aside.
- Cut Apple in half. One half take core and skin off, and dice. The other, core and slice, they will be used as garnish.
- Fill 2 cups with ice and throw in diced apples into each cup to your liking.
- Add Sparkling Water and Apple Juice evenly to each glass.
- Pour the mint infused Green tea evenly to each cup, stir with a straw.
- Garnish with apple slices and mint. Enjoy!
You can easily turn this into a delicious cocktail by adding some Lemon Vodka…yum!
