Today I'm a Happy #MoodieFoodie

It's the weekend. The sun is shining. The weather is hot and I'm all about summer.


So, what better way to celebrate than with a refreshing drink of Agua Fresca from Sobey's Inspired magazine? I found this recipe by browsing through the mood "Happy" in Sobey's new MoodieFoodie app.

Serves 8 
Prep Time 15 min.
Total Time: 15 min.
For a spiced-up version, add 1/2 cup (125 mL) of vodka, light rum, Grand Marnier or tequila.

Recipe Ingredients
4 sprigs fresh mint
2 tbsp sugar 30 mL 
1 cup finely diced fresh pineapple 250 mL 
1 cup sliced strawberries 250 mL
4 cups Compliments Fruit Fusion Strawberry Passionfruit Fruit Beverage 1 L
1 bottle Compliments Carbonated Mineral Water With Natural Lime Flavour 750 mL
1 cup ice cubes 250 mL
Recipe Directions
1. Place mint leaves and sugar in a large pitcher or punch bowl and crush gently with a cocktail muddler or wooden spoon until slightly bruised. Add pineapple and strawberries. Stir in juice blend and refrigerate until needed.
2. Just before serving, add mineral water and ice.
Sounds yummy, right? This is a delicious and fancy non-alcoholic option to serve to your younger guests and your designated drivers. No one will miss the alcohol. Of course, if you want an adult version, you could certainly add some spirits. I think I'd go for the light rum with these flavours.
Have you tried out this MoodieFoodie app yet? It is available for iPhone, iTouch, and iPad, free from the AppStore. And don't forget to enter my contest for a $50 Sobeys giftcard so you can try some of these great recipes with Compliments products as well.
