This refreshing drink was created using Sweet ‘N Low® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #donthesitaste
With summer in full swing I always like to use fresh fruit to make delicious drinks. I love the sweetness fresh fruit brings to a drink. I especially like to use berries during the summer. The other day while we were on vacation we had brunch. It was a beautiful day out so we ate our brunch outside. I decided to make a delicious brunch cocktail using the blueberries that I had on hand.
Even though I wanted a sweet cocktail for brunch I did not want all the excess calories that comes with that. I made the blueberry syrup with Sweet’N Low® to sweeten it up instead of sugar. Sweet’N Low® is a zero calorie sweetener that helps you enjoy a sweet drink without all the extra calories. By substituting Sweet’N Low® for sugar it helps you to reduce calories in drink recipes. Plus it is diabetic friendly. I love the fact that I can have a sweet drink without all the extra calories.
The cocktail that I decided to make was a Blueberry Mimosa. I used fresh blueberries and Sweet’N Low® to make a blueberry syrup. The syrup then can be mixed with champagne to make a delicious cocktail. I decided to make a non-alcoholic drink so that my whole family could enjoy it and used sparkling cider instead of champagne. You can also use sparkling water as a substitute to champagne as well.
This was a perfect cocktail for a summer brunch. I love the fact that it was sweet without all the extra calories that are typically associated with sugar. I made enough blueberry syrup for 4 cocktails, but feel free to double the recipe if you need. I hope you enjoy this delicious cocktail.
