Put a little sparkle in your summer with this skinny Sparkling Kiwi Strawberry Hard Pink Lemonade cocktail!

Who doesn’t love a refreshing, fruity cocktail in the summer?  I like my cocktails like I like my fictional vampires – sparkling!  Actually, I’m just kidding around about the fictional vampire part.  I’m way more of a Louis and Lestat kind of girl.  But I do like a good, sparkling cocktail while hanging outside in the sun or enjoying a cool night out on the deck!

So I thought I’d combine my love for classic summertime sips and sparkling cocktails together in a hard pink lemonade recipe.  I had a bottle of brandy leftover from the Star-Spangled Berry Sangria I made for the 4th and decided to spike my sparkling lemonade with that.  You could definitely use bourbon or vodka in this cocktail.  Whatever strikes your fancy!  But the real rockstar of this cocktail is definitely Kiwi Strawberry Sparkling Ice!

I drink a lot of sparkling water!  It’s a great alternative if you’re not a huge fan of plain, old water.  We all know that it’s important to stay hydrated.  Especially during the hot, summer months!  That’s why I like to keep Sparkling Ice in the fridge.  It’s loaded with antioxidants and vitamins, and there’s no sugar!  With 16 fizzy flavors to choose from, staying hydrated has never been more fun!

Kiwi Strawberry Sparkling Ice not only gives this cocktail its sparkle, but also its fun, fruity flavor and pink color!  There’s zero calories in it, making it perfect for flavoring those skinny summer cocktails!  To give this cocktail its lemonade twist, I started with fresh lemon juice, a little water, and a bit of honey. 

Then, I added brandy, gave it a good shake in a cocktail shaker filled with ice, poured it into mason jars, and topped it off with Kiwi Strawberry Sparkling Ice.  I garnished the drinks with a slice of fresh kiwi and served them with a fun party straw!

This has quickly become my new favorite cocktail to sip on!  It’s not loaded with sugar, but the touch of honey and Kiwi Strawberry Sparkling Ice gives it a pleasant sweetness.  Plus, it’s pretty in pink and looks super cute served in mason jars.  In fact, if you have summer celebrations happening, you can whip up a few batches of these ahead of time!  Just put a lid on them and chill!

    Why do drinks in mason jars look so much more tasty?! I don’t think I can survive without this one in my life!
