Pear Peach Fizz Mocktail

Those who want more than a glass of sparkling water will love this recipe. A quick fruit puree will instantly turn your favorite sparkling water into a deliciously refreshing beverage with lovely hints of fruity flavor. For this specific recipe, pears and peaches are the stars. The pear brings a sweet fragrant aroma as well as the selected variety's signature taste (any pear will do) while the peaches bring that classic peachy flavor best described as sweet with a touch of acidity. Homemade puree made with fresh fruit is best, but you can use store-bought if you want to save time. There is also the option to make the puree in advance and store it in the refrigerator so you can easily make a beverage or two whenever you wish. The puree can be chilled for up to three days or frozen for up to 3 months. If frozen, just thaw, add to a glass then top with water.
