The following cocktails are just a few to get you going!
- 1/3 glass sparkling mineral water
- 1/3 glass orange juice
- 1/3 glass ginger ale
- Slices of orange
- Ice cubes
Pour the orange juice, ginger ale and mineral water into a glass. Decorate with cherry and orange slice fixed on a cocktail stick. Add ice.
- A dash of single cream
- A dash of lemon cordial
- Ice cubes
- Chocolate bar (grated)
Put the cream, lime and ice into a cocktail shaker or sealed container and shake. Tip into a glass and carefully top up with cola. Sprinkle the grated chocolate on top. Serve with a straw.
- 1/2 glass cherryade
- 1/2 glass pineapple juice
- Wedge of pineapple and cherry
Mix cherryade and pineapple juice together in a glass. Decorate with pineapple wedge and cherry.
- 1/2 glass grapefruit juice
- A dash of lemon juice
- 1/2 glass lemonade
Half fill a glass with grapefruit juice. Add a dash of lemon juice and top up with lemonade. Finish with a slice of lemon. Serve with a straw.
- Orange juice
- Blackcurrant syrup (eg Ribena)
Half fill a glass with orange juice. Top up with lemonade. Pour a dash of blackcurrant gently into the glass. Finish with half a slice of orange slit partially down the middle and hung on the side of the glass, a parasol and a straw.
Ginger Pom Pom
- 100ml pomegranate juice
- 20ml grenadine syrup
- 100ml diet lemonade
- 100ml dry ginger
- ice (crushed)
Shake all together in your tupperware shaker then decorate with a few pomegranate seeds and a slice of lime.
- 100 ml sparkling water
- 100 ml cranberry juice
- 100ml fizzy orange (tango or fanta)
Pour all ingredients into a tall glass (or two depending on how much ice you use) decorate with a slice of orange with a cherry in the middle. You put the cocktail stick through one side of the orange slice skin, then thread the cherry then through the other side skin so it looks like a sun.
- Pour 20ml Elderflower cordial into a champagne flute
- Top up with fizzy water, soda or tonic to taste.
One of our friends thought we had splashed out on an expensive champagne when we served this on Boxing Day. It’s also nice using flavoured tonic.
- Blackcurrant cordial
- Lemon Juice
- 3 grapes – squished
Pour a splash of blackcurrant and a good squeeze of lemon juice into a cocktail shaker or large beaker with a lid.
Squeeze the juice from 3 grapes (you can eat the flesh if you want). Add a squeeze of lime and a squeeze of orange. Add ice. Shake (don’t stir!) Pour into glasses, then top up with lemonade. Decorate as desired.
Here’s one for anyone who misses a G and T. I’ve called it Turkish Tonic because Turkish Delight often comes in rose and lemon flavours.
- 10 ml (i.e. 2 teaspoons) sirop de rose (available from Waitrose)
- 2 slices of lemon
- 200 ml diet tonic water
Pour sirup into a tall glass.
Squeeze in the juice of one slice of lemon then add both lemon slices to glass.
Stir well and adjust to taste.
