The summer months are upon us and the sun is definitely out to play! Whether you’re hosting a BBQ, an afternoon brunch in the sun or just looking to try some delicious drinks to enjoy whilst sunbathing, we have come up with some refreshing mocktails to keep you cool and refreshed in the heat. Take a look and enjoy…
Raspberry & Lemon Mojito
Using a bottle of Belvoir’s Raspberry & Lemon Cordial (which can be found in some of our delicious hampers!), you can create a delicious non-alcoholic raspberry mojito! Simply pour 1x 500ml bottle of the Belvoir cordial into a large jug half-filled with ice, top up with soda water, add 1 handful of frozen raspberries, 1 sliced lemon, the juice of 1 lime and finish by stirring together with a handful of mint leaves. Top tip – rub the mint leaves between your hands before adding to the jug, this will release the minty aroma giving the drink a more intense flavour! Serve in a tumbler glass over ice to enjoy.
For a simple yet effective drink that is perfect for parties, combine half and half measures of concentrated watermelon juice and still lemonade in a mason jar drinking glass. Instead of using ice cubes to keep the drink cool, simply dice and freeze watermelon chunks and add in the drink when served – adding extra flavour whilst keeping it nice and cool!
Rhubarb and Rosehip Spritz
Mr Fitzpatrick’s Rhubarb and Rosehip Cordial is the perfect base ingredient for a delightful mocktail – and spoiler alert, you will be able to get your hands on this tasty product in some of our new Christmas hampers! To create your very own Rhubarb and Rose Spritz, simply pour a 50ml serving of the cordial over crushed ice in a wine glass, add a 25ml serving of non-alcoholic ginger cordial and top up with some sparkling lemonade. Garnish with a small stick of sugar-soaked rhubarb for an extra sweet treat!
