Winter Citrus Orange Spritzer (Mocktail)

January, the driest month of the year. Or in my case, the next 12 plus months.

Nothing like really committing and going all out for this years new year resolutions… really trying to show everyone up over here. But lemme tell you something, it ain’t easy. Which is why I have been really getting into fresh juice, smoothies and well, mocktails. Something to wind down with in the evenings minus the wine.

Winter Citrus Orange Spritzer, a mouthful in title and in flavor.

 

I was fortunate enough to partner up with once again, Ankarsrum, and was able to create the most delicious and refreshing drink that I can enjoy both in the mornings and in the evenings. The juicer attachment is SO incredibly to use and the process is INCREDIBLY FAST. Like lightening speed quick. And virtually zero mess which to me is an A+++ in my book since I’m one of those that leaves my kitchen to rot for several days before cleaning.

This recipe is SO easy to make and takes less than ten minutes when using the attachment (vs hand squeezing or blending and straining). I seriously can’t stretch enough how much I use this mixer in my kitchen (I pretty much have every attachment they have to offer).

Recipe Notes:

I used Cara Cara oranges for this recipe however any orange variety will work (I just love the pink flesh the Cara Cara has to offer). The lemon gives it a little bit of a tart twist along with the pure pomegranate juice (I do not like overly sweet drinks). The muddled mint adds extra flavor and freshness to your refreshment. If you are wanting to add a bit more sweetness I would recommend adding a tsp of honey to your drink and stir well.

ENJOY!
