Is there anything better than a refreshing summer beverage? Whether I’m making a pitcher of fruity punch for the whole family to enjoy or a tasty weekend cocktail for myself, summer drinks are always a treat. And now, Kraft Canada has a way to make summer refreshment even easier with its new KraftHeinz Liquid Enhancers! With a variety of flavours to suit any tastes and zero calories per serving, making the perfect summer drink has never been easier!
I recently had the chance to test out the new Liquid Enhancers for myself, so I decided to whip up a fun low-calorie summer cocktail. I loved the look of the Coconut Lemonade Cocktail, but wanted to personalize it to better suit my tastes. With just a few simple ingredients, including Country Time Lemonade Liquid Enhancer, and a few minutes of time, I created a delicious Sparkling Blueberry Hard Lemonade that provided flavourful refreshment at the first sip.
Sparkling Blueberry Hard Lemonade
- 1 oz. blueberry vodka
- 1/2 tsp. Country Time Lemonade Liquid Enhancer
- 3/4 cup sparkling water
- blueberries and lemon slice to garnish
Fill glass with desired amount of ice.
Pour vodka and Country Time Lemonade Liquid Enhancer into glass.
Fill glass with sparkling water and stir gently.
Garnish with berries and lemon if desired.
Since Jeremy and I had enjoyed our own adult drink so much, we couldn’t resist making a non-alcoholic beverage the whole family could enjoy as well. Once again, just a few ingredients were needed to create a unique and flavourful Watermelon Mojito Mocktail that the boys adored as much as we did!
Watermelon Mojito Mocktail
- 3-4 fresh mint leaves
- 1 tsp. lime juice
- 1/2 tsp. Kool-Aid Watermelon Liquid Enhancer
- 3/4 cup sparkling water
Put mint leaves, lime juice and Kool-Aid Watermelon Liquid Enhancer in bottom of glass.
Using muddler or end of a wooden spoon, gently muddle mint leaves to release flavour.
Add ice and sparkling water to fill glass. Serve immediately.
KraftHeinz Liquid Enhancers also come in Tang and Country Time Lemon Iced Tea varieties and are so quick and easy to use. Each bottle contains enough liquid to make 24 servings and all of the beverages are zero calories. I was happy to see that the liquids are sweetened with sucralose and acesulfame-potassium, both of which have no effect on blood glucose and insulin levels. And while I normally dislike the taste of artificial sweetener, there’s so little in each serving that I don’t even notice it!
All four varieties of Liquid Enhancers are available now at stores across Canada and make creating the perfect drink quick and easy.

There’s no end to the fun and delicious drink combinations you can create with one little bottle!
