Healthy Summer Party Hacks


Treat your designated drivers and teetotalers to a tasty booze-free beverage. This Golden Pineapple Mocktail is light, refreshing and full of flavor. Here’s how to make it:

Step one: In a saucepan, make Turmeric-Ginger Tea by combining 2 cups water, a few slices of fresh gingerroot, a few slices of fresh turmeric root and 1 cinnamon stick.  Stir to combine, cover, and bring to a boil. Then, reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Strain the tea through a fine-mesh strainer and stir in some optional honey to taste. Let it cool.

Step two: Fill a pitcher with lots of ice and add the cooled Turmeric-Ginger Tea + 2 cups pineapple juice and 4 cups LaCroix Pure Sparkling Water (or Piña Fraise, AKA Pineapple-Strawberry). Give it a stir, pour into glasses and garnish with optional pineapple slices! Makes 8 servings; 30 calories each
