DRY JAN IS NEARLY OVER!

Updated: Feb 17

Dry January is nearly over, however, this is the hardest part. Getting through the final two weekends of parties. Lucky for you, we have some great mocktail recipes to keep you on the straight and narrow. EASY ICED TEA:

Ingredients:

  • 6 tea bags

  • 2 tbsp golden caster sugar

  • 1 tbsp runny honey, plus extra to serve

  • 2 lemons, 1 juiced, 1 sliced

  • 1 orange, sliced

  • small bunch mint leaves picked

  • ice

Method:

STEP 1: Put the tea bags, sugar, honey and 1.5 litres water in a large jug. Leave to infuse for 10 mins, then remove and discard the tea bags. Chill until ready to serve.


STEP 2: Stir in the lemon juice, lemon slices, orange slices and mint leaves. Fill the jug with plenty of ice and stir again.


STEP 3: Fill tall glasses with ice and pour over the iced tea, then serve with extra honey to taste.


WATERMELON LEMONADE:

Ingredients:

  • 1 large or 2 small watermelons

  • 250ml lemon juice (from a bottle or squeeze your own)

  • 100g golden caster sugar

  • 1l bottle soda water

  • 1 lime , cut into slices

  • small handful mint

  • crushed ice

Method:

STEP 1: Cut the top off the watermelon and hollow it out using a large spoon, fishing out any pips along the way. Mash the flesh through a sieve into a bowl. Put the flesh in a blender (or use a tall jug and hand blender) with the lemon juice and sugar, whizz to a purée, then stir in the soda.


STEP 2: Heap some ice into the hollowed-out watermelon and fill it with the lemonade mixture. Serve the rest in a jug with the lime slices and mint. Have a bowl of extra crushed ice on the side so people can help themselves.


Virgin Mojito:

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • small bunch mint

  • 3 limes, juiced

  • soda water

Method:

STEP 1: Muddle the sugar with leaves from the mint using a pestle and mortar (or use a small bowl and the end of a rolling pin).
