How to make this mocktail recipe
If you're making fresh squeezed orange juice, then start by juicing the oranges. You'll need 2-3 oranges to make ½ cup of fresh orange juice. If using store-bought orange juice, proceed to the next step.
Add orange juice and frozen grapes to a blender. If you don't have frozen green grapes on hand, then add refrigerated or room-temperature grapes with a ½ cup of ice. Blend until smooth and creamy. (NOTE: adding ice will add volume and dilute this drink somewhat, but it's still very tasty!)
Pour the orange juice and grape mixture into a glass.
Carefully add the sparkling water and fresh lime juice. Give it a gentle stir, and enjoy!
To make it fancy, serve with fresh orange peel. Twisting it not only makes it look cute, but also releases the natural aromas of the orange.
