Happy Labor Day y’all!  

This morning I want to share with you one of my FAVORITE cocktails. This is also super refreshing as a mocktail – for those of you who don’t necessarily need to drink the second you think “Holiday! No work today!”

Before we get into this deliciousness- let’s chat about sugar for a sec.  If you read my blog and know me you know I am a huge advocate for all things fat not things sugar.  *Sugar is super inflammatory, causes diseases like cancer and diabetes.   I am not perfect – I eat sugar sometimes- but I do try my best to stay away from it.  And when making cocktails, I can fortunately control the ingredients.

I am collaborating with Zevia for this post. Ever here of it?  Well it’s a zero calorie, naturally sweetened with stevia, SUGAR FREE soda.  They have all kinds of fun flavors which makes it the perfect cocktail mixer.  So, if you are trying to ween off soda, or just like having something bubbly, I highly suggest having this soda around.


This spicy watermelon grapefruit cocktail has been my go-to drink this summer.  Jalapeños make everything better and it’s so easy you can make a single serving when you want just one drink or make a pitcher of it for your LDW party.
