Cranberry Tangerine Rosemary Mocktail – the perfect balance between savory and tangy, this combination adds a new flavor profile to ordinary iced tea with cranberry juice, and tangerine slices. Add a touch of rosemary buds and vodka to turn this beverage favorite into a Spring cocktail!

(Virgin) Grapefruit Mojito – Perfectly pairable for any brunch occasion, this virgin mojito adds a kick of citrus for a boost during the sunshiny Spring season.
