The summer is officially here and we have been spending the afternoon in the pool. I want to start hosting our neighbors and close friends for poolside cocktails. For every gathering I host, I make a signature drink for my guests to enjoy. This week, I ordered some Sparkling Ice drinks from Amazon! I’ve bought them here and there at the grocery store to drink with lunch. They have zero calories and that always makes me so happy! This week, I decided to mix them with lime, fresh jalapenos from my garden, and Rose’ wine.
With all the craze over Rosé, I decided to go full on pink yumminess for my poolside gathering. This drink is extremely refreshing and super easy to make. I started with fresh Jalapenos and Lime cut into rounds. I love adding spiciness to drinks during the summer months because they help the air feel cooler. Did you know that Spicy foods stimulate the circulation and raise body temperature? The increase in body temperature can make you feel cooler by diminishing the difference between you and the surrounding air and by inducing sweating, which cools the body when the perspiration evaporates. This is why your find spicier foods in hot climates. How crazy is that?!
I placed 2 lime rounds and 2 jalapeno rounds into a glass, then I filled the glass halfway with chilled Sparkling Ice Black Raspberry. Then, I filled the glasses the rest of the way with Rose’ wine. If you want a more spicy wine sparkling cocktail, feel free to add more Jalapeno round. To get the drink’s effect, you need at least two jalapeno rounds. This is best made and served immediately rather than in a pitcher since you will lose the fizz in the pitcher after a while.
