Juicy mocktails

After a lot of grey skies and drizzle, the sun is finally out.

So dust off the deckchairs, mow the lawn and clean up the BBQ in preparation for basking in the garden with friends, a refreshing drink and a pink and black sausage or two.

We’ve been busy in the kitchen, mixing up some very special mocktails, just perfect for those 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.

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

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.

apple & raspberry juice

Think pink
Or drink pink. Since everyone knows that apples and raspberries go together like eggs and bacon, after a lot of thought, we opted to blend the former pair for our delicious new juice blend. We hope you think we made the right decision.

  • blend of 7 apples and 30 raspberries in every carafe
  • there is 1 portion of fruit in every 150ml serving

Extremely exotic
For something slightly more exotic in your tumbler, why not pour yourself a glass of our delicious new tropical blend? A combination of pineapples, passion fruits, mangoes, oranges and apples, it’s guaranteed to make the sun shine*.

Brighten up your street visits Galway

Another weekend and another lovely street brightened up with a free delivery of innocent orange juice. Over the weekend, we popped over to Galway to visit Brighten up your Street winner Aine Burns-Fitzpatrick. Aine wanted her street brightened up with a free delivery of innocent orange juice because "We have a nice little estate on the outside of town and have street parties so if we won we would all be drinking innocent at our next party". We liked the sound of an orange juice party.

Here's the lovely Aine taking her Brighten up your Street delivery.

Brighten up your street visits Cork

Last weekend we took a trip down south in our grass vans to deliver innocent orange juice to two lucky innocent brighten up your street winners. We had a great time meeting the winners and their neighbours. Here's how it all went down...

First up, we stopped by Douglas, Cork to deliver orange juice to Marie Bott and all her neighbours. Marie wanted her street brightened up by innocent "because i have great neighbours who are always there to help each other but with all the rain recently & the dark evenings we haven't been out the front catching up with each other - this would be a great reason to get talking again." We couldn't agree more. Here she is with her lovely kids and one of our orange juice delivery ladies.

" We said no problems to Eileen and gave her and all her neighbours a free delivery of innocent orange juice.
