juicy mocktails

With the sun shining outside, we’ve been busy in the kitchen, mixing up some very special mocktails, just perfect for these long hot summer days. They’re healthy, taste delicious and are really easy to make. Leaving you more time to work on your tan/power wash the patio.

Apple do nicely (serves 6)

What you’ll need

  • A 900ml bottle of innocent apple juice
  • A punnet of raspberries, washed
  • A small handful of fresh mint, finely chopped
  • A few sprigs of fresh mint to garnish

How to make it: Pop the raspberries into a bowl and mash into a mushy puree using a fork. Next, pop some ice into a big glass jug and pour in the apple juice. Add the raspberry puree and chopped mint to the jug and mix it all together. Then pour into tall glasses, adorn with a sprig of mint and sip daintily.

Sister citrus (serves 6)

What you’ll need

  • A 900ml bottle of innocent orange juice (with bits or smooth, depending on your OJ preference)
  • 4 clementines
  • Freshly squeezed lime juice to taste
  • Slice of lime to decorate
  • 1 hammock (optional)

How to make it: Cut the clementines in half and squeeze the juice into a bowl. Next, pop some ice into a big glass jug and pour in the orange juice. Add the clementine juice to the jug, squeeze in as much lime as you like and give everything a good stir. Then pour into nice glasses, garnish with a slice of lime, kick back in your hammock and enjoy.
