This is so addictive. Pink grapefruit cordial mixed with soda water, it’s the perfect pre-dinner drink. Just get some.
Rosemary blueberry smash
This was a winner. Another honey-based experiment, with the sweetness of blueberries and a bubbly kick.
Based on the Bundaberg Brewed Blood Orange, with passionfruit for extra flavour.
Blackberry Honey Mint Mocktail
Ooh yeah. A little fussy, but great great flavour. There is a lot of honey in this one, but blends nicely with the lemon and blackberries. Worth it.
The first of many spritz recipes – this is the easiest, and always enjoyable. Particularly if you garnish it nicely 🙂
Pure and simple, with lovely muddled wedges of lime at the base. A classic.
Rosemary grapefruit mocktail
This could be a new favourite. It’s simple, tops up well, and looks incredibly elegant. And the fizz transforms it from a basic fruit juice into an exciting taste sensation.
Ginger Rhubarb Fizz
Found a fantastic ginger-rhubarb syrup yesterday. With soda water, this makes for a fantastic pre-dinner drink, or a cooler for long hot summer afternoons.
The original Bellini was one-third white peach puree, and two-thirds champagne. This is an equally simple blend of two ingredients – pureed watermelon, and sparkling apple cider.
Berry mint punch
Includes my perennial favourite raspberry cranberry juice – always in my fridge. Mmmm – raspberry cranberry juice and fresh berries..
Two versions: the basic mint/lemon/sugar; and the ginger ale version.
Red grape mocktail
Red grapes are in season. They’re everywhere, they’re cheap, and they taste great. And even better as a mocktail. Simple ingredients, low fuss. Perfect.
A pretty name for a pretty drink. Traditionally orange juice and champagne, this was replaced with my favourite de-alcoholised sparkling cuvee.
Cranberry lime rickey
Lots of lovely tart lime, with cranberry juice and grenadine for extra colour and flavour. This disappears quickly!
For the engineering student within. A non-alcoholic rum and coke.
