One of the little known secrets about my husband is that he has a thing for country music. And Miranda Lambert. So when I found out that I would have the opportunity to attend the concert, my husband jumped at the chance FOR me before I could even hit send on my Facebook status seeing who might be interested in accompanying me. We planned our date night for the outdoor venue that we’ve grown up near. The Midwest Bank Amphitheatre offers both lawn and pavilion seating, so we knew the summer breezes would be warm wherever we sat. I headed to Walmart and picked up two closed bottles of water (one unopened bottle is allowed at our venue) and a few packets and liquid mix of Crystal Light beverage enhancers #PlatinumPoints #CollectiveBias
The Crystal Light additions can be found in the juice aisle near the powdered drink mixes and flavored water. As you can see, they were refilling the Crystal Light that seemed to be pretty popular!
1. Individual Powder Packets (These are the perfect ones for individual bottles of water)
2.. Liquid Drink Mix (These are the liquid bottles where you can add drops of flavor. I enjoy using different varieties to mix together!)
3. Large variety of powdered Crystal Light mixes (Making some for the whole family? Pick these up to create a few quarts of your favorite flavor!)
We found our seats and settled in for the opening acts. I opted for an Iced Tea which reminded me of a southern comfort feel given the fact that we were surrounded by cowboy hats and boots of all shapes and sizes! The drinks were refreshing (and inexpensive) unlike what you typically find at concert venues like these. Crystal Light adds a ton of flavor without added calories and each serving ends up being 5 calories or less with over 20 refreshing flavors available.Our favorite flavors as a family cover a wide-range – we love the traditional lemonade, anything with pomegranate and the refreshing iced tea flavors. I loved the fact that we could really customize each drink based on our own preferences and security did not give us any problems about bringing the packets in which means that even if we opted to buy additional water inside, we would still get that customized flavor without the extra price tag.
The concert was an absolute blast and for one of the songs, I was sure my hubby was singing the loudest! The Platinum Tour was simple with a little bit of pizzazz and perfectly enhanced in all the right places. She really let the music do the talking, complete with her own guitar playing.
Much of what she did reminded me of Crystal Light – taking something simple and loved (water & music) and giving it a little extra oomph and something special to make it her own.
Her own twist on Crystal Light was shown in her #Randarita video and recipe that had me itching to try it at our next family barbecue. Try it yourself!
How would you take one of the classic Crystal Light beverages and give it your own twist?
