While we love a great cocktail as much as anyone, we're kind of enjoying the non-alcoholic ones that we're seeing at the moment! Non-alcoholic cocktails are definitely trending, and we don't expect them to disappear anytime soon.
Here are some non-alcoholic recipes to try at home!
Basil & Strawberry Margarita
What you’ll need:One bottle frozen lime concentrate or cordial, 10 large strawberries, 8 basil leaves
Instructions:1. Empty the lime concentrate into a pitcher. Add 2 ½ cups of water.2. Hull the strawberries, slice lengthwise, and add to the pitcher.3. Crumple the basil a little in your hands (this will help the basil flavour release into the drink) and add it to the pitcher, too.4. Place the pitcher, covered, in the fridge overnight, or for at least four hours.5. When you remove the pitcher from the fridge, the basil should be a lovely pale pink colour.
What you’ll need:100% orange juice, sparkling water, 1 orange, for garnish, ice cubes
Instructions:1. Take the orange and either slice it thinly or cut it into wedges, set aside.2. In a large pitcher mix equal parts orange juice and sparkling water; if you are using ice cubes you may want to add those first.3. Garnish with a fresh orange slice or wedge.4. Serve immediately to keep the drink fizzy.
