Galentine's Day LaCroix Mocktail

Who's got big Galentine's Day plans? Thanks to Leslie Knope, this holiday has been a "thing" since 2010. All about women celebrating women, the tradition occurs on February 13th — Valentine's Day Eve. Or, really, whenever you want to party with your gal pals... and I say celebrate 'em early and often!

So, here's a toast to my girlfriends:
I love you more than LaCroix
And more than most boys
You make my life sweet
Let's have some treats 🍕🍔🥂

What are we toasting with? Thought you'd never ask! It's time for ...drumroll, please... LACROIX MOCKTAILS! (Or you can put alcohol in it if you want, but I'm accommodating all my #whole30 friends and my pregnant friends and my non-drinking friends and.. well, everybody.)

I have to give recipe credit to my husband on this one. We each made a mocktail with orange LaCroix, and his was much better than mine. In fact, he spit mine out on the first taste. I guess I got a little too adventurous...

Anyway, here it is:

- Orange juice (make sure it doesn't have any added sugar or ingredients if you're following whole 30)
- Cranberry juice, unsweetened
- Orange LaCroix
- Sea salt
- Cara Cara pink navel oranges — read how to dehydrate them here.

1. In a pitcher or mixing glass, pour 4 ounces of orange juice
2. Add 2 ounces cranberry juice
3. The secret ingredient — just a dash of sea salt
4. Pour an entire 12 oz. can of orange LaCroix into the glass
5. Garnish with a dehydrated pink navel orange. It looks pretty, and it ups the flavor game.
6. Serve 'em up! This recipe serves two 8 oz. glasses

And there ya have it! A fun, easy (and guilt free!) drink for your Galentine's party. If you're up for a serious girls night, you could even make a craft from those leftover orange slices. So pretty!
