Thanks goes to Cassidy Levine for sending us these recipes.

By the way, I tried Spindrift about six months ago and loved it. I shared it with my family and were all had different flavors. Everyone was shocked and pleasantly surprised that the fruit tasted so fresh and there was no aftertaste. When we were in Boston the end of March, we were delighted to see it available in a deli by the train station. It is always nice when you try something new to see it so well received in the market. Spindrift is a winner.

Spindrift Orange Mango

Sparkling Tequila Sunrise

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 oz. grenadine (see directions)
  • 1/2 an orange
  • Ice
  • 2 oz tequila
  • Spindrift Orange Mango
  • Fresh orange and cherries for garnish

Directions: Make grenadine (we made our own by mixing 1 part 100% pomegranate juice to 1 part sugar – then heating and stirring until fully dissolved).

In a tall glass, add ice, tequila and freshly squeezed orange half. Stir.

Then gently pour in the grenadine (it will sink to the bottom and create that pretty color) and top with Spindrift Orange Mango.

Garnish with a cherry and orange slice.
