Swap booze for great tasting mocktails

Published Feb 4, 2016


Cape Town - Dry January may be over, but you can still cut back on alcohol just a bit.

A press release from cranberry juice maker Ocean Spray suggests these mocktail recipes:


Cranberry & Raspberry Iced Tea


1 tea bag

500ml Ocean Spray Cranberry & Raspberry Fruit Blend

Lemon wedge and raspberry - to garnish


Place the tea-bag into a jug and top with 250ml cold water. Leave to infuse in the fridge for three hours, then strain.

Mix the tea and cranberry and raspberry fruit blend together. Pour into a large glass with ice. Garnish with lemon wedge and raspberry.


Light Cranberry Cooler


1 part chilled Ocean Spray Light Cranberry Nectar

1 part orange juice, chilled

Ice cubes

Fresh lemon slices


Pour all ingredients into an ice filled glass, stir, and garnish with slices of lemon.


Lava Lamp


170g ginger ale or lemon-lime soda, chilled

1 teaspoon Ocean Spray Dried Cranberries, any flavour

Decorative straw


Pour ginger ale into a 250ml clear tumbler or tall narrow glass. Add dried cranberries and a decorative straw. After a moment, cranberries will begin to slowly float up and down in glass, like a lava lamp. Garnish with a decorative straw.
