Holiday Balance: Healthy Hydration by Day, Party Cocktails at Night!
Maintaining balance through the holidays can be a challenge. Bonne O can help. Create delicious fruit infused sparkling waters for daytime healthy hydration, then switch into your party gear and create nighttime party cocktails.
Here is a great drink idea that ranges from healthy to party using the same colourful, festive real ingredients: pomegranate seeds, mandarin orange segments & lime. Today we'll create a fruit infused sparkling water, a fruit infused vodka soda and a vodka soda with a hint of sweetness - all using the same festive real fruit base.
Here is how to easily create the Sparkling Water Infused with Lime, Mandarin Orange & Pomegranate Seeds. Place a few lime segments, halved mandarin orange segments and a small handful of pom seeds in the bottle. Top up the bottle to the rim with cold water. Fill the flavour chamber with water and place a carbonator in the carbonation chamber. Close the system, press the button and sparkle! In minutes you have a yummy, healthy, festive way to hydrate all day. Take the sealed bottle to work. Since it is sealed, it will remain fully sparkled until you open it. Open slowly, using the vent on the bottle cap if you added a lot of fruit for extra flavour.
To turn your fruit infused sparkling water into a beautiful vodka soda, simply fill the flavour chamber with vodka instead of water. Add a bit more vodka to the bottle before topping the bottle up to the rim with cold water. All the other steps are the same and you'll have a festive Vodka Soda Infused with Lime, Mandarin Orange & Pomegranate Seeds. To see a short video of this drink sparkled, click here. Open this very slowly. Use the top bottle cap vent to release some pressure, pause and do again. This is a beautiful, festive drink with real fruit. Each sip you can crunch a pom seed for an extra burst of flavour!
Now for a more flavourful holiday cocktail, try an Orange-Pom Vodka Soda Infused with Lime, Mandarin Orange & Pomegranate Seeds. Stick with all the steps from above, except put a dash of orange syrup and a dash of pom syrup in the flavour chamber. Half-filling the flavor chamber with syrup adds enough flavour. Top up the flavour chamber with vodka. Add a bit more vodka to the bottle before topping up with cold water. To see a short video of this beverage sparkling, click here. This festive drink has a bit of added sweetness and a boost to the pom and orange taste. An evening holiday party treat!
