If you’re looking to cut calories but still wanting to enjoy some colourful and fizzy drinks, there are plenty of mocktail options that are non-alcoholic for you to enjoy:
White virgin sangria
- ½ cup sliced strawberries
- 1 orange sliced with peel on
- 1 lemon sliced with peel on
- ¼ cup blueberries
- 4 cups sparkling water
- 4 cups white grape juice
Slice strawberries, orange and lemon.
In a large pitcher, add sparkling water and 4 cups of white grape juice.
Add fruit and allow them to soak in.
Add ice, stir and serve or allow to cool in fridge for 1-2 hours.
Watermelon and lime mocktail
- 4 cups seedless watermelon, cut into cubes
- 4 tbsp coconut sugar
- ¼ cup fresh lime juice
- Fresh mint leaves
Blend watermelon cubes in a blender. Mix in coconut sugar and lime juice and transfer to pitcher.
Add ice and mint leaves and enjoy!
Lemon and mint ice cubes
- 2 lemons (1 lemon cut into smaller pieces, 1 for squeezing)
- Mint leaves, washed and pulverized
- Ice tray
Place lemon pieces in each ice cube slot and top with mint leaf.
Take second lemon and squeeze juice of lemon into bowl. Take juice and pour small amounts into each ice cube tray slot.
Pour water into ice cube tray.
Once frozen, use to jazz up a glass of plain water or your favourite summer cocktail or mocktail.
