Pool season is coming! 

We've had a bit of a cold front in Phoenix these past few days, but I can tell that pool season is most definitely on its way! It's funny, though. When I talk to people who do not live in the desert or who are not from the desert, they laugh when I tell them that 90 degrees (F) feels way too cold for the pool. Heck, even my mom gives me a hard time! Just a few weeks ago when my mom came out to visit with us, she packed her bathing suit thinking that I would want to go swimming with her. HA! It was in the 80 degrees temps back then, so I was still wearing a long sleeve shirt (and definitely was not ready to put on my swim suit).

But once pool season is really here, Adam and I will be at the pool almost every single day. And you know for sure that I'll want to bring something cold and refreshing to drink while I'm out in the heat! 

Today, I'm sharing this delicious, poolside punch mocktail recipe featuring Dasani Sparkling! This punch is packed with fresh pineapple juice, a medley of different sparkling water flavors, blue agave nectar, and lime juice!



How to Make "Poolside Punch"

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup of freshly squeezed pineapple juice
  • 1/3 cup of Dasani Sparkling Tropical Pineapple
  • 1 tablespoons of Dasani Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade
  • 1 tablespoon of Dasani Sparkling Lime
  • 1 tablespoon blue agave nectar syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon of fresh squeezed lime juice
Directions:
  1. Fill a large highball glass with ice.
  2. Pour all three flavors of Dasani Sparkling into the glass along with the blue agave nectar syrup and lime juice. Stir well.
  3. Slowly pour in the fresh pineapple juice so that it floats to the bottom and creates an ombre effect.
  4. Enjoy chilled (and by the pool!)

Dasani Sparkling is a great alternative to some other sugary beverages we usually drink. 

Adam is currently on day 3 of his 30 days cleanse of all sodas and coffees. I love my husband a lot (like a lot a lot) but he was so darn grumpy all weekend since it was the first 48 hours of going cold turkey on some of his favorite drinks and it was very frustrating! So, I decided to stock our fridge with cans of Dasani Sparkling--well, let's just say that he was definitely a lot less grumpy after I made him some refreshing poolside punch!


Be sure to pick up some Dasani Sparkling the next time you are at Target! You can find these 8-packs of 12 oz cans in the grocery/beverage section of the store.
