Say 'Cheers' to Health with Rooibos Summer Mocktails

Make your summer mocktails antioxidant-rich and filled with health benefits with Rooibos Tea – the popular herbal tea from Aspalathus linearis. Abundant with antioxidants, Vital Organics Rooibos (pronounced Roy-Bos) is Certified Organic, naturally caffeine-free, with low levels of tannins. Here are a few Rooibos mocktail ideas to keep you feeling cool, refreshed and brimming with good health this summer:


Honeydew and Grape Rooibos Spritzer


1 Small honeydew melon

1 cup (250 ml) Vital Organic Rooibos Tea, brewed and chilled

1/2 (125 ml) cup seedless green grapes

1/2 (125 ml) cup freshly squeezed lime juice

1/2 (125 ml) cup honey

2 cups (500 ml) sparkling water


Cut the melon in half, scoop out the seeds, peel and cut into 2.5 cm cubes. Rinse grapes well. Freeze the grapes and melon for one hour. Combine frozen melon and grapes with the freshly squeezed lime juice, Vital Organic Rooibos Tea and honey. Put into a blender and puree until smooth while adding sparkling water as needed. Serve immediately.
