Recipe from ALWAYS DELICIOUS by David Ludwig, MD, PhD, and Dawn Ludwig.
The syrupy sweetness of colas and other sugary drinks can be a challenge for some people to eliminate from their diets. Luckily, there’s an even more satisfying way to get your fizzy fix. Sparkling water, a few favorite fruits, and herbs make a delicious — and much healthier — alternative. This also makes a great punch to serve at parties.

Ingredients
  

  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • 8-10 fresh mint leaves
  • 2-3 tsp fresh lime juice
  • ½ cup ice, or more, as desired
  • 20 ounces sparkling water

Instructions
 

  • Evenly distribute the blueberries, mint, and lime juice at the bottom of two large glasses. Mash with a wooden spoon or pestle to release the flavors. (In bartending, this is called muddling.) Add ice to each glass and fill with the sparkling water. Stir gently, taste, and add more lime or mint as needed. Serve immediately.
