Ginger Lemon-Mint Julep Mocktail

Ginger lemon Health-Ade is one of my go-to flavors. Despite the weather, the benefits from this flavor invigorate my body year-round. When it is particularly cold outside, I love how the ginger warms me, but when it is warm out, I love that the lemon adds depth and brightness!

Ginger root is an ingredient that I try to cook, bake and enjoy not only for the flavor but the skin and inner radiance benefits. Ginger has many benefits for healing the body and was originally used for medicine with naturopathic doctors. Ginger aids in easing the stomach and digestion and when paired with lemon the pair is unstoppable. Lemon is very high in vitamin c which is incredible for your digestion as well as your skin. The high level of vitamin c in lemons helps reduce your risk for kidney stones, heart disease and regulate your vitamin levels. Ginger is also an anti-inflammatory, which helps with inflammation during digestion.

The benefits from these ingredients on their own are outstanding, but when paired together in this delicious ginger lemon-mint julep mocktail, they not only taste amazingly refreshing, I know they are working to aid my body from the inside out.

tropical punch sangria (mocktail)

Let’s take a trip down memory lane. Back to summer when you were a kid, when the days were long, filled with laughs, snacks and tropical punch free flowing!

When Health-Ade told me their new flavor of kombucha was tropical punch, with notes of pineapple and mango, I about fell to the floor with excitement! Not only is pineapple my favorite fruit, but tropical punch booch, GUYS, this is the best thing since sliced bread! The heat of summer has hit, and the days are long, meaning there are more hours in the day to plan for picnics, days by the river and hours spent sipping tropical punch Health-Ade.

Two years ago, my summer looked different, there was an ocean and a pool involved. This year, since we moved back to rural Montana, we have an abundance of creeks, ponds and rivers to enjoy a picnic by. Landscape stretching as far as the eye can see in this big sky state. Scenery changes, moments change but the one constant of summer that stays with me from June into Labor Day weekend is the desire to be outside, 99.99% of the day.

The inviting summer breeze bouncing from mountains beckons me to the creek for my evening walks with my dog. The water dances in the eddys and bubbles natures music. With the flick of a wrist, the snap of the Health-Ade bottle opens and magically the easiest Tropical Sangria punch is made. A perfect compliment to a summer picnic. 

When I think of Sangria, I think of sweet fruit, light tang and a whole lot of flavor. When the new flavor was released I knew that this flavor would pair perfectly with more fruit, a titch of tang and those delish notes of tea from the Health-Ade!

Slice some fruit and let’s assemble!

6. drink and enjoy the summer moments!


One of my favorite things about sangria is how easy it is to make! You take your favorite flavors and marinate them together to form arguably the most delicious drink ever! Another reason that I find sangria to be the best summer drink is that you control your own destiny, whether you want to add wine, or not the possibility is up to you. In this particular case, I felt that alcohol would hinder those sweet and sour notes in the pineapple and mango fruit punch flavor in Health-Ade.
