This summer, we’re betting a bottle (or two) of sparkling rosé might be on the menu for everything from backyard barbecues to picnics in the park. We have an easy way to update your favorite drink, and it involves a familiar superfood—chia seeds! For this recipe, we used pouches from Mamma Chia—basically chia pudding in squeeze-and-eat form. The cherry-beet flavor works beautifully here, and you still get all the benefits of chia, like omega-3s and fiber! Stir two pouches up with pineapple juice, ginger beer, and seasonal fruit, and you’ll be sipping summer’s best dressed cocktail.
