We are wrapping up our Mocktail Mondays with a bang, well a punch- PREGGY PUNCH! Our friends at PopSugar are helping us out again with this Fizzy Blueberry Basil Punch recipe, originally created on Cooking for Keeps. The bump deserves something a little bubbly; treat the craving with a drink that not only brings in antioxidants, but memories of sitting around and sipping on something sweet. When it’s good for you and tastes good too, it’s a win-win and our pick for the final Mocktail Monday. Enjoy!
Gather your girls over for this drink, because the recipe is ready to serve 6 to 8 people!
- 1 lb. blueberries
- 3 cups water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup basil
- Juice of two limes
- 1 liter club soda
- Add the blueberries, basil, water and sugar to a medium saucepan and stir. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Push the mixture through a sieve and into a pitcher. Add lime juice, then chill in the fridge until cool, about 45 minutes.
- Add club soda right before serving.
- Garnish with extra blueberries, lime or basil.
