I was recently invited to come up with a couple “Sweet Summer Send-off” inspired recipes for NECTRESSE® Natural No Calorie Sweetener, which I’m excited to share with you today! And speaking of today – it’s already LATE AUGUST… how the heck did that happen so fast?! Anyways, I loved the idea of a sweet & simple summer celebration so much that I couldn’t resist dreaming up a little matching tablescape and a few printables to boot. And if you’re not yet familiar with NECTRESSE®, it’s the 100% natural zero calorie sweetener that’s made from the goodness of naturally sweet monk fruit extract. You can learn all about it here.
So, first up is a Mint Infused Cherry Spritzer Recipe. This refreshing (and super low calorie!) drink is a mocktail with an optional cocktail variation, so you can toast to summer the way that sounds best to you.

Mint Infused Cherry Spritzer
(makes 4 servings)
– 1 cup pitted fresh or frozen (thawed) cherries
– 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, plus 4 sprigs for garnish
– 4 packets NECTRESSE®
– 1/4 cup lime juice
– 3 cups cherry-flavored seltzer
Divide cherries and mint leaves among 4 glasses and muddle together with the back of a wooden spoon. In a separate container, mix lime juice, NECTRESSE, and cherry seltzer. Fill glasses with ice and seltzer mixture. Garnish with mint sprigs. Enjoy!
Cocktail Option: Add dark rum to turn this into a cocktail – 1.5 shots per serving
