Picnic-Perfect Drinks at N.E.E.T. Magazine

When the editor of N.E.E.T. magazine, an “eco-friendly, grassroots style bible” contacted me to contribute to their Summer food feature – alfresco-dining fare – I jumped at the chance.

For their June issue, I developed the two totally unique picnic beverages that kick Kool-Aid to the curb: Basil Lemonade and Hibiscus Ginger Cooler. They are simple to make, sugar-free, and of course loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant power! Check them out here and flip to page 192-195 for a printable PDF of both delicious drink recipes.

Happy Picnic-ing!
In health, Sarah B.

  • I was looking for some refreshing summer drinks and am interested in trying these recipes, but the link you posted doesn’t seem to work as the magazine no longer exists. Would you be willing to repost these recipes to your blog?

  • Hibiscus seems to be the flavour of the year, I’ve been seeing it cropping up everywhere. And about time, it’s so good- astringent, berry tasting, and such a rich red colour. In Australia we call it rosella, and I’m lucky enough to be growing some in my back yard (sorry Elenore) 🙂
