Why We Like It

Sparkling water and fruit juice creates a healthy soda pop and we love it!  You can provide a variety of flavored waters and juices, and allow your guests to create their own.  The addition of sliced fruit is a bonus...we are partial to wedges of lime!  See the quick tip for how to make a healthy version of Gatorade...that we like to call Home 'R Ade!

Mix Together:

  • 6 oz unsweetened seltzer water (or sparkling water or club soda, plain or with the essence of raspberry, lemon/lime or orange)
  • 6 oz 100% fruit juice (cherry, grape, apple or cranberry)

Pour over ice in a 16 oz glass.  Stir to combine.

Serve and Enjoy!

  • 2-3 Tbsp mixed berries (any variety of fresh berries, or lemon or lime wedges, OPTIONAL)

Serve with fresh berries, or lemon or lime wedges, if desired.

Quick Tips

You can make a homemade Gatorade that contains the same electrolytes, yet has no artificial colors and is sweetened only by fruit juice, no added sugar…at a fraction of the cost!

Simply combine the following in a pitcher or large water bottle (or empty 1 liter bottle):  12 oz 100% fruit juice (cherry, grape, apple or cranberry), 20 oz of water, and 1/8 tsp salt.  Stir or shake well.  (Add salt only if you are exercising for more than one hour and/or in extreme heat, otherwise added sodium is not needed.)
