What makes a perfect summer beverage?
It should be served ice cold to combat the heat of high summer, have a light, refreshing flavor, and maybe even offer a burst of sparkling bubbles to really quench your thirst.
Aura Bora’s “heavenly sparkling waters” have perfected all three components. Naturally flavored with herbs, fruits, and flowers, drinking an Aura Bora is like a foraged summer bounty in a can — a can that’s entirely free of artificial flavors, of course. It’s the perfect beverage for getting outside, enjoying the sunshine, and admiring the fragrant beauty of the summer season.
To get their great flavors without the additives, Aura Bora uses natural ingredients sourced from plants. Here’s how their sparkling waters differ from the others:
Aura Bora offers the best of both worlds — the complex ingredients of a fine cocktail, without the sugar, alcohol, or brain fuzz. If you’re skipping out on the booze this summer, here are two summer mocktail recipes made with Aura Bora’s favorite Elderflower Grapefruit and Ginger Meyer Lemon flavors. They’re the perfect additions to your picnic, barbecue, or post-work porch hang.
Aura Bora spent months sourcing the juiciest, most flavorful grapefruit to pair with the sweet and aromatic undertones of elderflower to create their Elderflower Grapefruit sparkling water. It’s the star of this sweet and tangy mocktail recipe, which also features an unexpected spoonful of strawberry jam for a seriously summery treat. Turn it into a cocktail with a shot of gin or vodka, if you’re so inclined.
Yield: One mocktail
3-4 ounces Aura Bora Elderflower Grapefruit sparkling water (coming soon!)
1 heaping tablespoon strawberry jam (or orange marmalade)
1.5 ounces fresh grapefruit juice
Grapefruit slices (to garnish)
Fresh rosemary sprig (to garnish)
In a cocktail tin, add ice, Aura Bora Elderflower Grapefruit sparkling water, jam, and grapefruit juice.
Shake away and strain into your favorite glass.
To serve, garnish with a rosemary sprig and a sliver of grapefruit.
Aura Bora’s Ginger Meyer Lemon flavor is a fresh blend of Meyer lemon and spicy ginger that’s delightfully balanced, naturally sweet, and perfectly zesty.
Yield: One mocktail
1-inch piece of ginger root
1-2 sprigs of rosemary (or another aromatic herb)
1-2 ounces fresh Meyer lemon juice
3-4 ounces Aura Bora Ginger Meyer Lemon (coming soon!)
Honey (to taste)
Peel and dice the ginger. Place ginger and rosemary in the bottom of a shaker and muddle using a cocktail muddler or a wooden spoon.
Add lemon juice and Aura Bora Ginger Meyer Lemon to the shaker.
Add ice and shake vigorously until combined.
Taste and sweeten with honey as desired, then shake once more.
Serve in a martini glass (with a sugar rim if you’re feeling fancy).
