3 Easy Guilt-Free Cocktails with Yerbae

6:00 AM

This past weekend, we tried something a little outside of our comfort zone... making cocktails! I've only made punch, poured shots, or mixed some liquor with soda. I've never actually tried making a cocktail myself, but I was surprised to find that it's actually a ton of fun! I still have a lot to learn, but we were able to put together some super easy (guilt-free for all those New Years resolutioners still going strong) cocktails for y'all!

For these cocktails, we used Yerbae, which if you've never of it, it's a non-GMO, no sugar/sweetener-added enhanced sparkling water with 100 mg of caffeine. I've never been a fan of sparkling waters, but the flavors are really tasty and the caffeine is such a great bonus! If you've never been a fan of coffee or if you're trying cut energy drinks of of your diet, these are a great alternative!


  • 1 Can of Strawberry Kiwi Yerbae
  • 1 Ounce of Rum
  • 3 Strawberries
  • 1 Lime
  • 4-5 Mint leaves
  • Crush strawberries and half of mint leaves
  • Fill glass with ice, then add rum
  • Top off with Yerbae (about half a can)
  • Garnish with mint leaves
Tip: For added sweetness, add sugar, simple syrup, or honey!


  • 1 Can of Orange Cherry Pineapple Yerbae
  • 1 Ounce of Vodka
  • 5 Cherries
  • 1 Lime
  • 1 Tablespoon of Honey
  • Crush cherries, add vodka, honey, lime, and vodka to a shaker
  • Pour mixture into glass filled with ice
  • Add Yerbae (about half a can)


  • 1 Can of Coconut Pineapple Yerbae
  • 1 Ounce of Coconut Rum
  • 1 Can of Pineapple Slices
  • Crush a couple splices of pineapple
  • Mix pineapple juice for pineapple slices, coconut rum, and Yerbae in equal parts
Honestly, this one was not only the easiest cocktail to make, but it was definitely the tastiest!

Happy drinking! I'd love to hear your thoughts on these recipes if you get a chance to try them!

P.S. You can find Yerbae at select HEB stores, but be sure to check HEB's website to double check if your location carries it!
