Picnic with Spindrift.

Beautiful summer days call for picnics! Especially with a new pup, it’s so fun to get outside. Bringing along food on a picnic can be cumbersome and messy, that’s why we opted for our Spindrift Sparkling Water. Did you know it’s the first and only sparkling water made with real, squeezed fruit?! It’s so delicious and refreshing and you can really taste the fruit! It was so good, even Rover wanted a taste hahaha. My favorite flavor was the Raspberry Lime. It was sweet but perfectly tangy, which I love. Spindrift is light yet refreshing. I especially love their colorful cans that matched so perfectly with our outfits.

Next time, I’m making sure to pack a Spindrift cocktail. After much digging, I found the perfect one on Thrillist! If you didn’t know, I’m a big tequila gal, so that’s going to be my go to in a cocktail.

Tequila + Orange Mango

This potent, tangy cocktail can be served with or without ice. I like to use Avion, a smooth tequila blanco (i.e., clear in color and assertive in flavor), for its citrus notes and agave aroma, but feel free to go with any blanco tequila of your choosing.

.75 ounce grapefruit juice
.75 ounce sweet Italian vermouth (like Cocchi di Torino)
1 ounce tequila blanco
Orange Mango Spindrift

Combine grapefruit juice, vermouth, and tequila in a tall glass over ice. Orange Mango Spindrift to fill. Pop in a straw and enjoy.

Not sure if Spindrift is sold at your local store? Find out here. I usually buy mine at Trader Joe’s and in bulk, to get me through the week.

    What a fun little picnic! I low key need a picnic basket in my life so I have an excuse to have one!

    I saw Spindrift on the shelf at our Harris Teeter the other day and thought about trying it out! When I drink sparkling water I usually drink La Croix – although Dasani has a great one, too! – but I am always ready to switch it up.

    And of course that puppy – what an angel!
