CG_2015SP_AL0245-EditBy Alexa Croft

This sunny sipper is elevated to party status with a little non-alcoholic bubbly. Guests can even assemble their own to taste – simply set out glasses filled with ice and lemon slices, a small pitcher of the fruit syrup and bottles of sparkling water.

  • 1 cup (250 mL) water
