This mocktail “The Summer Berry”, is the first of two themed drinks I created in honor of the Mom’s on the Move Podcast based out of Greenville, SC.
The “Jennifers” (both hosts are named Jennifer, which I love), created their local Facebook group and podcast because: “We want to empower each other and create a place for understanding, while also navigating tough topics, with a few laughs in between. We, as women and moms, are in this together.” Click here to connect with the Moms on the Move community, watch/listen to their podcast, and receive their exclusive biweekly newsletter. Pimento & Prose recipes and blogs are also currently featured in the Mom’s on the Move biweekly digital newsletters along with exclusive local recommendations & coupons to local Greenville shops!
Make sure to tag us @pimentoandprose and @momsonthemove_gvl when you make this exclusive cocktail at home and use the hashtags #summerberrygvl & #squeezethedaygvl too!
I used a ton of in-season, local produce for both of these drinks. The vision was to create something easy and fun to sip on for the women in my life who might not want to, or couldn’t drink alcohol for whatever reason (be it pregnancy, taking a break from drinking, etc.), but who still wanted to have a great tasting, balanced drink they could enjoy for themselves or scale up for a party!
We were also lucky enough to partner with a local Greenville restaurant, Limoncello, to be able to use their restaurant bar for some of our photos and videos for behind the scenes on how to make these drinks (check out our handles above for those later today)!
I also wanted both drinks to be related to each other with ingredients, so both feature lemon elements and fresh, in-season fruit for our area in them (strawberries in the mocktail, and grapefruit in the cocktail!).
