Immunity Mocktails

Easy Immune Mocktails for Summer

Citrus Sunrise

Sunrise Immunity MocktailsIngredients

  • 2 parts Rev3 Energy
  • 1 part grapefruit juice
  • 1 part orange juice
  • 1 part pear juice
  • Sparkling water
  • Crushed ice (or whatever ice you’ve gotthis isn’t Harry’s New York Bar)

Instructions

  1. Top off your glass with ice
  2. Add Rev3 Energy
  3. Float in grapefruit juice
  4. Continue layering with orange juice, then pear juice
  5. Top with sparkling water
  6. Insert your favorite reusable straw and enjoy

Notes

A tall, thin glass is a striking way to serve this sweetly sour blast. Tart grapefruit pairs well with the pomegranate flavor of Rev3 Energy, and its natural sources of caffeine give you a buzz of energy.

Lemon Tonic Julep

Tonic Immunity Mocktails

Ingredients

  • Large Meyer lemon
  • Diet tonic water
  • Sprig of fresh mint, plus a few leaves
  • Handful of blueberries
  • Crushed or cubed ice

Instructions

  1. Cut a twist of lemon peel (a vegetable peeler works great here)
  2. Fill glass about three-quarters with ice
  3. Halve lemon and squeeze juice into glass
  4. Fill glass with diet tonic water
  5. Express oils from several mint leaves (give them a gentle clap)
  6. Insert sprig of fresh mint
  7. Garnish with lemon twist and blueberries

Notes

My personal favorite for its sharpness and refreshing mint accent, a great alternative for gin lovers. If the bitter quinine flavor of tonic water doesn’t strike your fancy, mix in a pinch of sugar-free sweetener—I recommend monk fruit.

Collins Berry Mash

Collins Immunity Mocktails

Ingredients

  • Stick pack of Booster C600
  • Handful of blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, plus extras for garnish
  • Sparkling water
  • Cubed ice (or a fancy-schmancy whiskey stone)

Instructions

  1. Rim the glass
  • Pour two-thirds of Booster C600 stick pack powder onto a plate
  • Wet lip of glass and rotate into powder
  1. Place several of each berry into bottom of glass
  2. Sprinkle remaining Booster C600 powder in with berries
  3. Muddle until mostly combined (a spoon muddles just fine)
  4. Fill glass about halfway with ice
  5. Top with sparkling water
  6. Give it all a good stir
  7. Garnish with berries

Notes

A typical old fashioned uses a sugar cube to help muddle the mixture. Booster C600 offers the same grainy texture and gives a tangy zap to the berry blend. Best crafted and served in an old-fashioned glass, with a wider space for all that muddling.

The Red Snapper

Red Snapper Immunity Mocktails

Ingredients

  • 3 cherry tomatoes, plus 1 for garnish
  • ½ cup small pineapple chunks, plus a wedge for garnish
  • 1 strawberry, plus 1 for garnish (this is a seriously sweet topper)
  • Juice of whole lime
  • 5 oz can tomato juice
  • Sparkling water
  • Basil leaves, for garnish
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • Hot sauce (for the brave)
  • Crushed ice

Instructions

  1. Add cherry tomatoes, pineapple, strawberry, and lime juice to cocktail shaker
  2. Give the mixture a good muddle
  3. Add tomato juice and several dashes of hot sauce
  4. Shake it!
  5. Fill about a third of the glass with ice
  6. Strain mixture into glass
  7. Top with sparkling water
  8. Garnish with halved cherry tomato, pineapple wedge, strawberry, a few basil leaves, and freshly ground pepper
  9. *chef’s kiss*

Notes

Wow—this packs a flavor punch. The perfect balance of sweet, savory, and spicy. Tomatoes are high in vitamin C, and the garnish is garishly awesome. Feel free to spruce yours up with a stick of celery or bacon. (Healthy-ish.)

Simply Pińa Colada

Pina Immunity Mocktails

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple, chunked
  • Juice of whole lime
  • Pineapple wedge, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Blend coconut milk, pineapple, and lime juice until smooth
  2. Pour into your tackiest tiki-ware (mason jars for me)
  3. Garnish with pineapple wedge

Notes

Rich coconut milk and the crisp hint of lime elevate this colada—without the added sugar. The beauty of a shake is you can toss in other healthy ingredients, like wheatgrass and black-eyed peas, without affecting the flavor profile. Keep up the healthy blending with an immunity-supporting green smoothie.

    Hello USANA! Thank you for these yummy mocktail recipes! I don’t drink alcohol and I don’t want my adult children to either, so I will be experimenting with these sometime this Summer.
