Autumn evokes thoughts of cozying up by the fire, long walks through crunchy leaves, and snuggling up with your loved ones with a warm beverage in hand.

This whimsy cocktail is the perfect way to welcome Spring. The sweet & sour flavors of lime & coconut will have you in the mood for warmer weather instantly! Even when indulging, it's important to me to use as many natural ingredients as possible. I turned to my trusty La Croix sparkling water , Stirrings simple syrup , & fresh lime juice. Beets are one of my favorite foods to use when I need to add a pink tint to any food or drink.
