Regardless of if you are hanging out by the pool with your friends, in need of a pitcher for your next barbecue, or in the mood to experiment–summer is the best time to get creative and shake up some tasty refreshments. With so many drink options to choose from, there is no limit when it comes to finding tasty, yet aesthetic beverages to feature at your next gathering. The question, though, is where do you start?
What if we told you that you can create a drink that is healthy, aesthetic, and tasty? In our free-time, we decided to get a little creative. ZYN tastes great on its own, but it also works as an add-in to common cocktails, mocktails, smoothies, and other drink choices to not only enhance the flavor–but also the benefits!
During our experimental process, we tried out ZYN in various types of common cocktails and smoothie recipes. We picked out our top favorites and shared them below! These recipes are made with simple ingredients and great-tasting flavors for every palette!
Vodka Lemon Ginger ZYNger:
- 1 ounce Vodka (Free to alter alcohol content to taste and preference.)

It really doesn’t get much easier than this! Not only does this drink taste amazing, but it is the perfect change up to an everyday Vodka Lemonade. This Vodka ZYNger is not only refreshing, but it offers the perfect balance between sweet and sour. Did we forget to mention? Very low in sugar and calories–talk about a bonus!
