STYLE: Mocktails and Palm Trees

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to try Ocean Spray® Mocktails at the Biggest Baby Shower hosted by Big City Moms in New York City. They were so refreshing and delicious! Read my review full review of the event HERE.

It was right around then that Ocean Spray® reached out to me regarding a summer partnership involving their new Mocktail line of juices. It was like they had ESP and knew that I had been craving summer cocktails like WHOA. It has been HOT here in New Jersey over the last couple weeks and I have needed a little relief! On a hot summer day, there really is nothing better than an ice cold or frozen drink or cocktail. My go-to cocktail, when I am not pregnant, is sangria. One of my ALL TIME favorite sangrias comes from this little tapas restaurant in the South End of Boston (our old neighborhood) called Estragon. Whenever we dined there (and we dined there often), I would have two (or three).

Ever since moving to New Jersey, I have yet to find a replacement that is good enough. So when I tried the Ocean Spray® Mocktail Cranberry Sangria on ice, I was pleasantly surprised. It was refreshing and not too tart. I loved it! The great thing about the Mocktails is that they are only 90 calories per serving, they are made with real fruit juice, and have no preservatives or high fructose corn syrup. They also have no artificial colors or flavors. How “sweet” is that?! And, in addition to the Sangria, the Ocean Spray® Mocktails come in two more flavors: Peach Bellini, pictured below, and Tropical Citrus Paradise, both of which are really great. The Peach Bellini has both cranberry and peach flavors while the Tropical Citrus Paradise is loaded with pineapple and coconut.

I have been drinking an Ocean Spray® Mocktail straight up with ice or with a splash of flavored seltzer almost every single night. It is so nice to have a glass after a long day at work. I (almost) don’t miss the alcohol!

Stay tuned for next week to get ALL of my outfit details. You know you are just as obsessed with that palm print as I am!

Thank you Ocean Spray® Mocktails for sponsoring this post. The opinions within this post are completely my own based on my experience.

    Oo I wish I heard of Mocktails last year! I wasn’t allowed to drink because of chemo and this would have been the perfect alternative! Btw, you look so cute in that palm print dress!

    I’ve seen these but haven’t tried them! I definitely want to try them.

    This sounds AMAZING. I’m not pregnant, but have been focusing on making lifestyle changes to hopefully lose some weight. The hardest thing to go without has been alcohol on the weekends, but this seems like the perfect low-calorie alternative! I hope they have this at my local grocery store!

    You look positively lovely Mama! Those mocktails sound delicious! I recently heard a radio commercial for them and was definitely curious. We will have to give them a go over here.
