We don’t have to go anywhere to have a perfect night. Some of the best times occur when it’s just us, in these walls of our home, having fun and laughing together. And when it comes to the holidays, my family including my kids are who I want to celebrate with. You need a great drink to properly celebrate, however. A simple water just won’t do.
Of course, if I’m going to celebrate with kids, our drinks have to be suitable for kids. DASANI Sparkling Water is the perfect mixer for all your special occasion drinks, even the non-alcoholic variety. Available at Walmart, DASANI Sparkling Water sparkles the holidays in 12 pack cans of Lime, Berry, Lemon, and Black Cherry flavors. With zero calories, zero artificial colors, as well as caffeine and artificial sweetener free, you can feel good with every fun bubble.
For our fun family night, I picked up a pack of DASANI Sparkling Water in Berry flavor. I also picked up a pack of mint leaves, as well as fresh blueberries and a lemon.
I froze some of the blueberries to use as garnishment, not to mention more flavor. The rest were going to get muddled for our Blueberry Spritzers!
In our drink mixer, I muddled together ¼ cup of blueberries with about 6 mint leaves. I then added the juice from half a lemon, 12 ounces of our DASANI Sparkling Water Berry flavor, and 1 ½ tbsp of simple syrup. Mix all of that together, strain well, and add the Blueberry Spritzers to your champagne glasses. Add a couple frozen blueberries and another mint leaf to really set it off!
You can’t celebrate with regular old cups, either!
As such, the kids had a blast making charms for our glasses! Simply take medium sized silver hoops and thread your beads through. Once your charm is fastened onto your glass, you’ll always know which is yours.
We used small alphabet beads, which we made into festive phrases, hearts, and our initials. These wine charms also make great gifts that your guests can take home and use on their own wine glasses. They’d also be really cute just to hang from a necklace!
And your kids feel all special and grown up drinking their sparkling water out of a champagne glass.
