by Cascade Ice on May 24, 2023


Summer is just a few short weeks away, and we’re feeling the sunshine vibes! In celebration of the upcoming season, we’ve whipped up some low-sugar, low-calorie, refreshing drink recipes that you can enjoy with or without alcohol. These options will not sabotage your healthy lifestyle goals and remind you of the long sunny days of summer. Read on for cocktail descriptions and instructions!

Bubbly Lemon Drop

Take the iconic lemon drop and slash the calories and sugar content – you’ll get this bubbly concoction that will quench your thirst on a warm day. Not only does this one taste great – it smells so good too! Omit the vodka if you’re looking for a “mocktail” option instead. 


2 oz Vodka

1 oz lemon juice 

Cascade Ice Sparkling Water in Lemonade

Sliced lemon wedges

Granulated sugar for the rim (optional)



Take a small cocktail glass and drip the rim into water, followed by granulated sugar to coat it. Combine vodka and lemon juice and pour over ice in the glass. Top off with Cascade Ice and use lemon wedge as garnish. 

Orange Mango Mule

With all the elements of the classic Moscow Mule cocktail, but with more bubbles and a fruitier taste. This delightfully low-sugar cocktail is the liquid equivalent of basking in the sun on the beach!


3 oz Ginger beer

Cascade Ice Sparkling Water in Orange Mango 

1.5 oz Vodka

Slices of fresh lime and orange  



In a copper mug, combine ginger beer and vodka over ice. Top off with Cascade Ice to the rim, and garnish with fresh orange and lime slices.

Coconut Colada

There’s nothing like a pina colada to get you in the mood for summer, as it really is the quintessential warm weather drink. This one is a little bit different spin on the classic, that won’t require a blender but still hits just right when you’re craving something tropical. Simply omit the rum for an alcohol-free version. 


2 oz Rum

3 oz Pineapple juice

Cascade Ice Sparkling Water in Coconut 

Pineapple slices



Grab a glass of your choice and combine pineapple juice and rum over ice. Pour in the Cascade Ice to the top. Stir gently and garnish with pineapple, then enjoy!
