Light, fruity, flavorful mocktails are so simple—and good. Thanks to fruit, sparkling water, spices and herbs, you can make this alcohol-free, added-sugar free beverage shine with a refreshing taste. This recipe is a great alternative to both sugary and alcoholic drinks. Alcohol increases the risk of at least 6 types of cancer and consuming high amounts of added sugar especially from sugary beverages can contribute to weight gain, increasing the risk for cancer and other chronic diseases.
Spice Glass Rim: (optional)
- 1/2 lime
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
- 1/2 cup orange juice, unsweetened
- 1 small lime, juiced

- 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
- 1 12-ounce can hibiscus flavored sparkling water, unsweetened*
- 1 large or 6 small ice cubes
- Orange, lime slices
- Jalapeño slices

- Create a spice glass rim with two 12-ounce glasses by running lime halfway along edge of each glass. Mix sugar, cinnamon and paprika together in small saucer. Press each glass into spice mixture to coat rims. Allow to dry for a few minutes before adding liquid to glasses. Or use plain glasses.
- Place orange juice, lime juice, jalapeño and smoked paprika in blender. Process for 1-2 minutes until well blended.
- Place ice cubes in each glass. Divide blended juice mixture between each glass.
- Top each glass with half of hibiscus flavored sparkling water.
- Garnish with orange, lime and jalapeño slices and hibiscus flowers, if desired.
*May substitute hibiscus flavored sparkling water with sparkling water flavor of your choice.
