Description

Lots of lovely tart lime, with cranberry juice and grenadine for extra colour and flavour. This disappears quickly!

This really works. A solid 30ml of lime juice neatly balances the cranberry juice, and when the fizz is added, becomes something special. Very easy to guzzle down, it’s hard to resist. Definitely recommended.

The combination of cranberry juice and grenadine also makes for a strong colour. Bring out the colour further with some berries on a cocktail stick too.

Description

Includes my perennial favourite raspberry cranberry juice – always in my fridge, with berries, lime and mint.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1.5 litres raspberry cranberry juice
  • 750ml soda water
  • 60ml cup lime juice
  • 1 punnet raspberries
  • 1 punnet blueberries or strawberries
  • 1 cup mint leaves
  • 1 lime, thinly sliced
  • crushed ice

Instructions

  • Mix cranberry juice, soda water, lime juice, berries, mint leaves and lime slices together in punchbowl or jug.
  • Half fill glass with crushed ice.
  • Fill glass with punch and stir

Keywords: berry mint punch, raspberry cranberry juice, mint

The best thing about this drink is that it’s a punch.

That means lots of lovely fruit at the bottom when you’ve finished. As you get close to the end, the flavour gets more intense – particularly the lime and the raspberries. And rather than let them go to waste, keep a long skewer handy so you can spear the berries.

Again, you can make a cut down version for 1:

  • 1 lime
  • Handful of berries and mint leaves
  • About 125ml raspberry cranberry juice
  • About 125ml soda water
  • Ice cubes

I used frozen raspberries and some blueberries and strawberries that really needed using up.

Mint leaves are growing nicely in my garden – the possum has been ignoring them lately.

And I cut a slice of lime for decoration, then juiced the rest.

Stir and serve. Another great recipe that didn’t need any special preparation.

Description

Obviously inspired by the refreshing “Sex on the beach” there are various combinations of this mocktail and cocktail.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 oz orange juice
  • 2 oz cranberry juice
  • 2 oz pineapple juice
  • ice
  • slice of peach to garnish

Instructions

  • Pour juices and ice into a cocktail shaker and shake, to cool the juices
  • Pour into highball glass
  • Garnish with a slice of peach

Keywords: abstinence on the beach, cranberry juice, peach

The original “Sex on the beach” cocktail definitely has cranberry juice, vodka and peach schnapps, but depending on you you speak to, has pineapple juice and/or orange juice.

Ditto the “Abstinence on the beach” – many recipes use coconut milk and frozen cranberry/grapefruit concentrates – but why use concentrates when you have fresh juice, and where did the coconut milk come from?

This recipe sits on the fence and uses both orange and pineapple juice – the latter adding a tartness that definitely wakes you up.
