Apple Juice Refresher is hardly a recipe … more of a tip, actually.
When I was a toddler I didn’t like milk so my mom put watered-down apple juice in my bottle.
These days I mostly drink water … but sometimes you just want something a little juicier.
Apple Juice Refresher is a light and thirst-quenching drink, great for those hot summer days.
Apple Juice Refresher
- Apple Juice
- Water (preferably chilled)
Variable servings in no time at all.
- Fill glass 2/3 full of apple juice (66% juice).
- Add 1/3 glass of water.
- Taste concoction.
- If too sweet, add more water. If too tart, add more juice.
- Keep track of your proportions for next time. I prefer about 60% juice … Mom prefers a super-dry 25% juice (but she also drinks unsweet tea — bleh!).
SERVE & EAT:
I recommend serving this Apple Juice Refresher in a goblet to limit portion size (fewer calories than straight juice but still empty calories).
The irony of serving this summer refreshment in a Christmas goblet was not lost on me — perhaps a subliminal frosty message?
Once you’ve found your perfect proportion, add water to your partially-empty apple juice jug for ready-made future drinks.
Just don’t forget the juice is already thinned! I put a check mark on the label to prevent double-watering.
Consider making Apple Ice-Pops with the watered-down juice. The kids won’t notice the missing calories with all the frosty flavor.
