A Refreshing Summer Drink, Super Useful Yeti Addition & 50% Off Sale-On-Sale

Recently, I saw a drink recipe online that sounded really good, but I changed it up a bit with the addition of another ingredient that I think makes it tastes and look even better. This drink is so yummy, it feels like you’re having a fancy cocktail when it’s really just a refreshing summer drink.

Below are the ingredients although it’s very easy to change them up for variety, so feel free to experiment around. For this drink, all you need is some cranberry juice, Poppi Sparkling Strawberry-Lemon Prebiotic Drink, Apple Cider Vinegar, and some fresh fruit. I like using raspberries or blueberries. Strawberries would be great, too! Note: I always have trouble finding the Poppi Strawberry-Lemon drink in my local stores, so I buy it here: Poppi Strawberry-Lemon Soda with Prebiotic Health/Immunity Benefits.

Delicious, Non-Alcoholic Cocktail Drink Recipe


I don’t do any exact measuring. I pour around 1/2 to 2/3rds of the Poppi Strawberry-Lemon sparkling soda into a glass filled with ice. I then add around 1/2 to an ounce of apple cider vinegar, a large splash (or two) of cranberry juice for a bit of fun color and extra flavor, and 4-5 raspberries or blueberries–or both! If you like, you can muddle the fruit in the glass first, but I just drop them in, whole. I give everything a gentle swirl to blend all the ingredients together and if it doesn’t taste quite as tart as I like, I’ll add a smidge more vinegar. I always buy Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (with the mother) and since I use such a small amount, it lasts a long time.

Low Calorie, Non-Alcoholic Cocktail


The Poppi Sparkling soda has 25 calories in a whole can, so I’m guessing with the amount I use (normally around 1/2 to 2/3rds of the can) and with the addition of the cranberry juice and fruit, this drink probably ends up being around 35-50 calories.

Recently, I purchased a Yeti Tundra Haul cooler. Yeti makes a basket that you can purchase to use in the top of their Tundra coolers to hold sandwiches and such, but I didn’t care for its design–it had really large openings in the basket. I found a basket that I liked a lot better with great reviews and ordered a couple. They took a week or two to come, but finally arrived yesterday.  I love how perfectly they fit and just wanted to share these in case you need baskets for your Yeti. I purchased these here: Baskets for the Yeti Tundra.

I am still obsessed with the color of this sweater! I love that beautiful aqua color so much for spring and summer! I especially love the button detail down each sleeve–so pretty! That’s one of the things I like about so many of the clothes you find at Talbots, they often have those special details like contrasting cuffs and little button details that you just don’t find anywhere else. I hope they never change because I love it all!
