It's finally time for the Teen Choice Awards!
While you're working on your best and worst-dressed lists for the show, stir up this mocktail and share with friends.
Brooke Parkhurst and James Briscione, the husband-wife duo behind newlywed kitchen guide Just Married and Cooking, created a tween-friendly recipe with a kick and a full day's supply of Vitamin C.
Plus, the fresh ginger, mint and seltzer make this concoction taste like a good-for-you champagne cocktail ... without the calories. Says Parkhurst: "It's great to make ahead for any TV viewing party – the longer you let this mixture chill out in the fridge, the more the flavors will improve."
