I have a confession to make. I’m a juice snob.
And I’m pretty serious about my juice.
I’ve never been a much milk drinker (unless cookies are involved) and have always preferred drinking juice. So a couple years ago while shopping at a local produce market I stumbled upon Natalie’s. After reading the label and learning that it was handcrafted by a family owed and operated company right here in Florida I decided to give their orange juice a try.
It was love at first sip.
And ever since tasting their juice, it’s now the only brand I’ll buy. Natalie’s makes the freshest, all-natural juice you can buy. It’s so fresh—it’s squeezed fresh daily and is on the shelf only 40 hours after it’s made. Their juices can be found in the produce section of your grocery store, such as Publix and other local markets. But they aren’t limited to just orange juice. They make delicious grapefruit juice, lemonades, fruit orange juices (mango orange is my favorite) and even fresh squeezed margarita mix!
I used Natalie’s fresh squeezed lemonade to make this delicious blackberry lemonade gin fizz. It combines to two of my favorite cocktail ingredients: gin and Natalie’s juice. Watch the video above to learn how easy it is to make this refreshing cocktail.
Ingredients for 1 serving:
– 6 fresh blackberries
– 4 oz. Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company lemonade
– 1-2 oz. gin (depending on how strong you want to make it)
– Splash of good quality tonic water or club soda
To decorate your glasses like mine, you will need some gold mylar tape. It’s sticky enough to hold up to hand washing but it can be removed from the glasses without leaving any residue. The perfect way to decorate your glassware for a party!
And after trying this yummy cocktail, I know you’re going to be a juice snob too.
