Teen Choice Awards: Tween-Friendly Mocktail to Enjoy

Honest Mango Spritz
It”s finally time for the Teen Choice Awards!

While you”re working on your best and worst-dressed lists for tonight, stir up this mocktail and share with friends.

Brooke Parkhurst and James Briscione, the husband-wife duo behind newlywed kitchen guide Just Married and Cooking, created a tween-friendly recipe with a kick and a full day”s supply of Vitamin C.

Plus, the fresh ginger, mint and seltzer make this concoction taste like a good-for-you champagne cocktail … without the calories. Says Parkhurst: “It”s great to make ahead for any TV viewing party – the longer you let this mixture chill out in the fridge, the more the flavors will improve.”
