Living in the deep south means two things, a passion for all things football and a love for cooler weather. Southerners welcome the end to the hot, hazy days of summer with open arms and look forward to all that Fall ushers in each year. Personally, I love all things Fall with one exception, with so many things to do each season I sometimes don’t have the energy to keep up with it all!
One way I have found to keep me feeling my most energized self each Fall is by using Emergen-C Super Orange products. Not only do they help me stay refreshed and restored all season long! I also love that Emergen-C is both affordably priced and super easy to make. It’s become a staple in my home medicine cabinet each Fall.
Did I also mention how awesome it tastes? Emergen-C is a refreshing way for me to take my daily vitamins as part of my commitment to better health, which is very important to me. I love knowing that Emergen-C is packed with antioxidants†, electrolytes, Vitamin C, Zinc, Manganese, and packs more Vitamin C than 10 oranges^.

Emergen-C also contains 7 B-Vitamins, which naturally gives me energy without caffeine, making it my favorite way to start my day each morning. And with 1,000 mg of Vitamin C plus other antioxidants Zinc and Manganese that work together to support your overall immune system*, Emergen-C is my go-to healthy drink.

While Emergen-C is a fantastic tasting drink on own, did you also know that this energy-boosting powerhouse can also be used to create other awesome drinks at home as well? Which is why I’m showing you today how Emergen-C can also be used to create a fun, frugal, fresh Strawberry Peach Mint Bellini mocktail, a drink that’s part good for you, and part fun too!
So, why a Bellini mocktail? It’s a classic. It’s super simple to make. And the Bellini, a popular sparkling cocktail known for its fruity effervescent taste, makes a perfect drink pairing with Emergen-C. Just with an energy-boosting, mocktail twist.
So, if you’re looking for a signature fall drink, this Strawberry Peach Mint Bellini Mocktail might just be what you’ve been searching for!
For this recipe, I used canned peach nectar and ginger ale, just to keep it more classic. I also used locally grown, organic peaches and limes from my local farmer’s market. I added homegrown strawberries and mint I had on hand. And of course, a packet of Emergen-C, per drink.
To prepare the drinks I used a pair of wine glasses and a mortar and pestle, as I already had these things on hand. Again, super simple.
I began by cutting the mint leaves. Just stack four mint leaves into a pile. Roll the leaves towards yourself, and slices them julienne style.
Cut, peel and slice your peaches and strawberries. Making sure to add all your scraps to your compost bin!
Place the mint slices, 4 sliced strawberries, and several slices of peaches into your mortar and pestle. Gently muddle together to help release the flavors.
Add your mixture to two glasses.
Add your ginger ale and peach nectar to your glasses. Make sure to not add more than eight ounces of combined drinks to your glasses, for taste and consistency.
Add one packet of Emergen-C Super Orange to each glass. Stir together and garnish with additional mint, a lime wedge, and a few fresh strawberries.
And that’s it! A refreshing, energizing, indulgent way to enjoy your daily Vitamin-C!
Now when I need to stock up on Emergen-C products, I always head to my local Walgreens. Emergen-C is conveniently located in your local Walgreens on the cold, cough, and allergy aisle. And with over twenty flavors of Emergen-C available, you’ll have tons of options to create your own Vitamin-C rich drinks this season at home!
So, savvy savers, there’s my recipe for Strawberry Peach Mint Bellini Mocktails, made with Emergen-C!
