As 90-degree days are upon us (!), Arizonans will turn anywhere for a bit of relief from the heat. And there is a new refreshing drink to help make the approaching summer days a bit cooler–especially when sipped poolside or during a shaded picnic. (And it’s super-pretty, to boot.)
Belvoir’s Elderflower Lemonade Pressé and new Elderflower and Rose Lemonade are 100 percent natural, gluten-free, GMO-free and vegan. The lemonades, from Britain’s Belvoir Fruit Farms, are the perfect alcohol-free alternative to bubbly as they combine freshly picked elderflowers and fresh lemon juice with sparkling water, resulting in a sparkling wine-type mouthfeel. Refreshing and festive. The lemonades are sweet with a touch of tang, and the new Elderflower and Rose Lemonade variety has a bit of a floral taste, perfect for springtime brunches. Plus, the gorgeous curvy bottles and the pretty pink hue makes it a great fit for Easter or Mother’s Day celebrations or for toting along on a romantic picnic.
Apart from a crisp and yummy taste, Belvoir’s elderflower products might also have a health benefit for drinkers, as it is known for its healing powers. It has been used to ward off colds and treat sore throats, hay fever and sprains and bruises. Belvoir also offers cordials, canned drinks and more. Available for $2.85 at Whole Foods. www.belvoirfruitfarms.co.uk/shop.
