Cucumber Citrus Mocktail

Friday 8 Dec, 2017, 1:25pm by Mrs D Share your ideas

OMG this is absolutely delicious! I made this when hosting some girlfriends the other night and it was insanely popular. It’ll probably be my Christmas Day mocktail. I use bottled lemon and lime juice to make it easy, and if you don’t have a juicer you can blitz cucumber chunks in a blender and then strain […]

Lovely subtle flavours in this drink. There are a few steps to go through but the syrup is enough for at least ten drinks and it will last for ages in the fridge. Just add fresh soda water and grapefruit juice any day you feel like a delicious & refreshing mocktail! Ingredients: 1/2 cup sugar 1 cup […]

Traffic Light!

This is a very festive drink! Our sons were offered these at a family-friendly pub we visited recently and they were super-impressed! Am recreating it here using the method the bartender taught me. It’s a bit fiddly to make and sugary as all hell but fun nonetheless. Ingredients: Orange juice Raspberry cordial Green food colouring […]

Just The Tonic

Friday 29 Sep, 2017, 10:00am by Mrs D

This is simple with only two ingredients and a couple of garnishes but even the simple act of combining two liquids over ice and adding a slice of lemon can feel very treaty! Tonic is sweet but it has a tart edge thanks to the quinine in it. Ingredients: Fruit juice Tonic water Ice cubes Lemon slices Method: * Put […]
