Swap booze for great tasting mocktails
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
Fresh lemon slices
Pour all ingredients into an ice filled glass, stir, and garnish with slices of lemon.
170g ginger ale or lemon-lime soda, chilled
1 teaspoon Ocean Spray Dried Cranberries, any flavour
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.
