If like me, you no longer drink alcohol, during the Christmas period I sometimes enjoy a little treat other than a glass of water with my meal. Here are a few ideas you may want to try.
2 x lemons
1 x medium cucumber
Puree the cucumber in a blender, add the juice of the lemon and shake well. Place ice cubes in a tall glass, pour over the mix and top with soda water. Top with a slice of cucumber and wedge of lemon.
½ cup coconut water
½ inch grated ginger
juice of ½ lemon
sea salt & turmeric
Put all ingredients in a jar and shake it will until mixed. Sever in a shot glass with a slice of lemon.
Sprig of rosemary
2 x orange wedges
1 x tsp pomegranate seeds
1 x stick of cinnamon
Put the orange and half of the rosemary into a tall glass. Muddle well then fill with ice. Top with soda water, stir and garnish with pomegranate, cinnamon and remaining rosemary.
1L of cranberry or mixed berry juice
2 x Cinnamon Sticks
10 x Cloves
Pop all ingredients into a saucepan or slow cooker. Allow to simmer (cook for 1 hour), strain and serve warm with a hot sweet mince pie or favourite chocolate.
