Low-Calorie Mocktail Recipes!
Virgin mojito – We love this one:
Chop a lime into quarters and put all 4 quarters into the bottom of a tall glass with 1 tsp brown demerara sugar and muddle well.
Add in 5 mint leaves and gently bash before topping up with ice (crushed or cubes) and soda water, stirring really well. Top with a mint sprig and serve. You could add strawberries, raspberries, blueberries etc to this.
Virgin bloody Mary
...Exactly the same as the normal one but just omit the vodka!
Chop half a lime into 2 quarters and muddle in the bottom of a glass. Add ice and tonic water and a dash of angostura bitters. Stir well and serve.
