I don’t know what your go-to drink is for summer, but mine is definitely Perrier. Through the years my favorite flavor was the lemon flavored Perrier, but ever since I tried some new ARO flavors it changed a little.
Recently I had the opportunity to try some of the new flavors which were Perrier agrumes/citrus, grapefruit and lime. After trying all of them my new favorite is the agrumes one. It kinda reminds me of Schweppes agrumes but without the Schweppes if that makes any sense. They also sell some other flavors like lemon ( as I would call it the original one ), strawberry and watermelon. I have tried the strawberry one before in Canada but I wasn’t totally sold on that flavor because it was a bit too sweet for me and reminded me too much of a sweetener in stead of a natural sweet taste.
You may or may not know this but I don’t drink alcohol. Not because my husband is Muslim but I just don’t like it and I don’t like what it does to your body and brain. So yes, you will catch me drinking a mocktail now and then and that’s why I wanted to create one with one of the Perrier ARO flavors. I chose the lime one because I thought it would be the easiest to work with. That’s when I created a healthy version of a Shirley Temple. A normal Shirley Temple is mostly made with ginger ale, fresh lemon juice, fresh orange juice and some grenadine. The one I made only contains Perrier Lime, fresh orange juice and strawberries. It was the first time for me to mix these flavors into a mocktail. Scroll down to see the recipe.

Pour the strawberry fluids in the glasses
Now follow with the orange juice and Perrier
Make a little cut in the 4 remaining strawberries and place them on your glass
CONGRATULATIONS, you just made a mocktail
Let me know if you have any other mocktail ideas, with our without Perrier. I’d love to discover some new ones.
