I so love Martinelli’s apple juice and sparkling ciders, it’s apple magick in a bottle. The best part about apple juice is that it’s good for the body. It can help to prevent cancer and asthma. It’s also a great juice for your heart. When you want to lose a couple of pounds, drink your apple juice. Those are just a few of the health benefits.
There are a lot of apple juices on the market, but Martinelli’s is my go to. I don’t know what they slip into their juice. It’s so darn addictive. When I’m taking a break from drinking, I slip the juice into a wine glass. It gives me the feel of wine and makes me feel fancy.
What’s great about Martinelli’s is that their ciders and juices can be used to make wonderful mocktails! Below is a recipe for a sparkly virgin apple martini that would be perfect to sip while sitting on a porch or chilling on a balcony. If you don’t have either, sip while chilling on the couch when you are having a Netflix or Hulu night.
Next time you are entertaining, this would be the perfect drink for the person who is skipping alcohol. Substitute and switch up this recipe any way that makes you happy. Cheers!
