Friday 5: Our Favorite Nuun Cocktails and Mocktails

At the Nuun offices, you’ll mostly see Nuun tablets dissolved in water as the beverage of choice. But we’re nothing if not experimenters, and over the years have tried building all sorts of drinks with Nuun.

For your summer sipping pleasure, here are five Nuun employees’ favorite Nuun-based cocktail or mocktail. Let us know what you’ve come up with in the comments section below!

 1. Nuunmosa

From Arielle Knutson, Marketing Manager

Ingredients:

  • Champagne
  • ½ Nuun tablet (we recommend Watermelon, Strawberry Lemonade, or Orange)

Pour a splash of champagne in a champagne flute. Add the half Nuun tablet and allow it to dissolve completely to prevent overflow. Fill the remainder with champagne, slowly.

2. The Mellön

From Megan Wheeler, Race Director Program Manager

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablet Watermelon Nuun
  • 5 oz. Water
  • 1.5 oz. Vodka
  • 0.5 oz. Lemon juice
  • 2 mint leaves

Start the Nuun tablet dissolving in water. Combine the other ingredients with ice, and shake. Pour into a tall glass and add the Nuun water. Garnish with the mint leaves.

3. Cherry Limeade Slushy

From Vishal Patel, Nutritionist/Education & Innovations Leader

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 cups crushed ice
  • 1 cherry limeade Nuun tablet
  • 16 oz. Water
  • 1 mint leaf

Dissolve the Nuun tablet in the water. In a blender, combine the ice and the Nuun water. Pour into a tall glass, and garnish with the mint leaf.

4. Nuunarita Snow Cone

From Tyler Smith, National Sales Manager

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. Cup freshly ground snow cone ice
  • Tequila
  • 6 lemon lime Nuun tablets
  • 16 oz. Water

Dissolve the six Nuun tablets in the water to make a syrup. Using a tequila-to-syrup ratio of 2-to-1, pour the tequila and syrup over the ice to desired strength and volume.

#5. Rum and (Cherry) Coke

Emma Kesler, Sales Coordinator

Ingredients:

  • Ice
  • 10-12 oz. Carbonated water
  • ½ Kona Cola Nuun tablet
  • ½ Cherry Limeade Nuun energy tablet
  • 1-2 oz. Rum

In a 16-ounce glass, pour half of the carbonated water over ice. Add the two Nuun half tablets. When they’re mostly dissolved, add the rest of carbonated water. (this reduces overflow from effervescence.) Add the rum, and stir.
