1. Apple mock-jito mocktail

Keeping the lovely minty taste of the classic mojito, but swapping rum for organic apple juice, this easy cocktail recipe from Redemption Bar tastes wonderfully fruity and refreshing.

2. Pomegranate and rosewater spritz

This fruity and floral drink is sweetened with Stevia to keep it low in sugar. And if you’re catering for guests who do fancy something stronger, you can add a splash of gin to theirs.

3. Frocorita mocktail

Showcasing a blend of coconut water and citrus juices, there’s a touch of the tropical about this mocktail recipe from London’s Redemption Bar. Make it beautiful by garnishing with an edible flower.

4. Strawberry and lime iced tea

It’s a favourite for summer BBQs, but we love this ultra-refreshing strawberry and lime blend all-year-round. Make sure you leave the teabags in for long enough to properly infuse their flavour.

5. Herb smash

Combining juniper berries, peppercorns and coriander seeds, this light and refreshing mocktail tastes just as good as a premium G&T!
