There’s nothing better than sipping a cold, refreshing beverage on a hot summer’s day and once again, Minute Maid has teamed up with the Canadian Living Test Kitchen to create an amazing assortment of cool concoctions to quench your thirst!
I always love trying the newest recipes from Minute Maid and so when I was given the chance to whip up one of these tasty drinks and see what I thought, I couldn’t resist. I was tempted to make the delicious-looking adult version of the Summertime Sangria, but my boys love fruity summer drinks as much as I do, so I eventually decided to make the Peachy Sparkler.
Minute Maid Peachy Sparkler
- 1 can Minute Maid® Peach Punch Frozen concentrate mixed with 1 ½ cans water
- 2 cups 500 mL Minute Maid® Original 100% chilled Orange Juice from concentrate
- ½ cup 125 mL lime juice
- 5 cups 1.25 L Sprite® beverage
- Frozen grapes and peaches to serve
In large bowl or pitcher, stir together Minute Maid® Frozen Peach Punch with Minute Maid® 100% Orange Juice and lime juice. Chill until needed
Fill glass with frozen grapes and peaches. Fill halfway with juice, top up with Sprite®. Alternately, skewer grapes and peach slices on a straw and freeze.
One of the things that I loved about this recipe was that it was suitable to partially make ahead and then serve up as needed. By simply having the blend of juices and bottle of soda ready in the fridge, I could mix up individual drinks as they were required. I also liked the ability to customize the sparkling drink with different varieties of Minute Maid punch. While the peach version was delicious, I think next time I’m going to try Minute Maid Mango Punch with frozen chunks of mango!

This drink is such a tasty and refreshing choice for a lazy weekend morning or a hot afternoon and I’m thinking I may make a grown-up version of the drink with sparkling white wine replacing the Sprite for our next backyard barbeque!
