Sparkling Spiced Orange and Lemon Winter Tonics

Hello friends!

Let’s take good care this time of year.  Let’s fill our bodies with goodness in the midst of our holiday run-around.  This is my favorite time of year… mostly because of all the parties that include bourbon and pie – but there must be balance because balance keeps us happy, chill, and from losing our minds at the company holiday party.  (I did that one year and… well, I’m still here to tell the tale but it’s mostly a cautionary tale, ya feel me?) 

There are a few things I do to keep my cool and balance this time of year.  I keep my fridge stocked with vegetables that I’ll snack on (aggressively) before a holiday party.  (I’m notorious for not eating enough at a party.  You too?) I also make it a point (a strong, very important point) to stay hydrated this time of year.  And!  To keep a bright and spicy Winter beverage in the refrigerator for myself and guests.  

We’re making two warming tonics:  Blood Orange and Clove with DASANI Sparkling Blood Orange AND a Spiced Winter Lemonade with DASANI Sparkling Meyer Lemon.  Keeping things bright and juicy.  Getting our vitamins and staying strong and balanced through the end of the year.  Here we go!  

This post is in partnership with DASANI Sparkling Water! 

We’re making two sparkling Winter tonics.  Bring in some vitamin C and spice.  Bring in a hint of sweet and a whole lotta sparkle.  

Here’s what we’ll use: 

•  blood oranges

•  lemons

•  honey and simple syrup

•  Winter spices:  ground and whole cloves, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and fresh ginger.  These spices will warm our insides (hearts and all) this time of year.

The single most frequently asked questions on this site of late has not been “Wait, you just put peanut butter inside a chocolate cookie, are you pregnant?” (Which is too bad because I want nothing more than an excuse to say this.) It’s not “Can I make this recipe gluten-free/dairy-free/Whole30-compliant?” (Me.) And it’s not even, “How do you do your daughter’s hair?” (We wake her up at 4 to set it in curlers, it’s a little crazy but obviously worth it). It is, in fact, some combination of “I need Instant Pot recipes.” and “How do I make this in an Instant Pot?” or “Should I get an Instant Pot?” Today I’ll do my best (and, of course, just skip ahead if you’ve already made peace with the presence or absence of one in your life):

* Is it worth the space? While I cannot answer for you whether you have the space for another large kitchen appliance, it’s worth noting that the IP could ostensibly replace a slow-cooker (or slow-cookers, in my crazy case), a stovetop pressure cooker, should you have one, and a rice cooker, although I’ll get rid of mine when you pry it out of my cold, dead hands. I can tell you with authority that I don’t have room for mine, but I like it anyway. I also don’t have room for my children and their belongings in this apartment, but I like them anyway (“anyway” = after 7am).

* But I am perfectly happy with my slow-cooker: I think of the IP/other electric multicookers and Crock-Pots/slow-cookers on the same continuum with different speeds. They excel at many of the same things: beans and stocks and long braises. Both are plugged in so you can put stuff in them and walk away (unlike a live gas flame on a stove). The slow-cooker requires you to think about what you’d like for dinner either the night before or that morning before you go off to work — it slows things down. Electric pressure cookers allow you to do it when you get home — it speeds things up. (The IP also makes yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, and rice, you can simmer a pot of liquid in it about as fast as you would on a stove, and you can actually brown things like meat, so it’s got a few other tricks up its sleeve, but rice and eggs at least cook faster on a stove.)
