Summer Never Tasted So Goodon Jun 01, 2016
Eating and drinking is the national pastime of summer. So how can you make the most of your summer without sacrificing food or beverage? Simple. By turning healthy cold-pressed juices into refreshing cocktails, tasty dishes and delicious treats for all. So check out Watts’ unexpected ways to take your summer to the next level.
A Natural Buzz
If you’re looking for that perfect signature summer cocktail, we’ve got three refreshing options for you to sip.
The 36 Watt Mojito
All you need here are is half a bottle of the 36-Watt and two ounces of white rum to put your own spin on a classic cocktail. Stir, shake or blend to release the full flavors of apple, cucumber and pineapple combined with the traditional mojito flavors of mint and lime.
Sparkling 26.2 Watt
Another easy yet delicious concoction to help put the fizz to your fun. Mix a 3:1 ratio of the 26.2 Watt with your favorite prosecco and enjoy the flavors of watermelon, strawberry, coconut water, lime and basil in a the way the Italians never imagined. If you have a somewhat sweeter palate you can use a sparkling moscato instead.
What happens when you combine Ancient City Brewing’s Watermelon Wheat Ale with our own cold-pressed 26.2 Watt? You basically get a Watt-ermelon explosion of flavor. Top off your wheat ale with the 26.2 Watt for a rewarding and refreshing summer brew.
Super Side Dishes
Show up to your next summer shindig in style and be prepared to answer the question, “Okay, I gotta know, how’d you make this?”
The Watt Dip
No summer party is complete without dip. So we’ve put our own twist on this summer staple. Blend the 1.21 Gigawatt (Kale, spinach, parsley, romaine, celery, apple, ginger, jalapeno) with either a Greek yogurt or sour cream base. Add a little minced garlic and some spinach and you just reinvented spinach dip.
When the weather heats up, cravings tend to be light and fresh, making salad the perfect choice. But we can make it even better, starting with the dressing. Just blend ¼ cup of the 44 Watt (grapefruit, ginger, orange, cayenne) with two tablespoons of champagne vinegar and two teaspoons of honey. Voila! An electricious salad.
And now, for the most important people of the summer: the kiddos. They can be the pickiest of eaters, but we’ve found a way to keep their fingers sticky all summer long.
There’s nothing more refreshing in the summer than a popsicle, but who needs that kind of sugar? Instead, turn a bottle of The Mega Watt (orange, pineapple, carrot and pear) into a frozen Wattsicle that’s packed with fruits and veggies and perfect for a poolside treat.
Watts in The Punch?
Punch up the punch in one simple step. To make the Watts punch, mix the Mini Watt (strawberry, pineapple, cucumber) with a sparkling white grape juice to give it some bubbles. Fact: Kids love bubbles.
Be the life of the party this summer by bringing the most unique and healthiest cocktails, recipes and treats poolside, seaside or anywhere in between. Mix up the Watts flavors and keep it fresh all summer long.
