Raspberry, Ginger & Sage Spritzer
This raspberry, sage and ginger mocktail is a great way to introduce your kids to new flavors. When my son first had this drink I wasn’t sure if he’d enjoy it — ginger and sage, after all, have such strong, robust flavors that many times adults don’t even appreciate them. However, my son ended up literally guzzling it down! The ginger and sage are added in a very subtle way so as not to overpower any of even the tiniest taste buds. It’s also super fresh with all natural agave sugar , making this recipe a delicious departure from your everyday soda! Pour a cup for you and your little one and toast to new tastes. Cheers!
