A refreshingly delicious Fruity Coconut Mocktail

This post is sponsored by Nuffnang

On the weekend I had an endless list of jobs I wanted to complete around the house, it was a Sunday, which I normally like to keep housework free and relax, but they were jobs that needed to be done.  Last on my list was to relax and enjoy a Sunday afternoon and what better way than doing it with a mocktail in hand!  Yes I said mocktail not cocktail because I don’t drink alcohol, not for any particular reason other than I just don’t like it.

Bickford’s sent me some of their premium juices to try, it’s a great range of Pomegranate Juice, Coconut Juice, Cranberry, Blueberry, Superberry Antioxidant juice and Prune Juice.   The kids were excited when unpacking the box as we don’t normally have juice in our fridge, but reading the contents of the Pomegranate Juice (100% Pomegranate Juice, no added sugar, no preservatives, no added colours or flavours, naturally high in antioxidants and vitamin C), I was more than happy for them to have a cup.  They really enjoyed it chilled with some ice.

Instantly when I saw the Coconut Juice I knew I had to try making a coconut inspired mocktail.  It truly was a refreshingly delicious end to a busy day.  The Coconut Juice just smelt beautiful from the bottle, you could close your eyes and imagine you’re on a tropical island.

The Coconut Juice is 99% juice (contains preservative and added natural flavour), no artificial colours or flavours, no added sugar is a source of potassium and is a natural essential electrolyte for rehydration.

I froze the Bickford’s Coconut Juice in ice cube trays to give the mocktail an icy texture.  I also used frozen strawberries to keep the cost of the drink low.

I’m normally a big fan of straight up Gin Martinis with a twist however I don’t mind something a bit fruit driven from time to time as long as it’s not too sweet. I’d jump straight into the Bickfords Pomegranite juice with 1 part Hendricks gin, a touch of elderflower cordial, fresh mint, a slice of cucumber topped with soda. delish!

These sound perfect! There is nothing worse than being lumped with housework on a Sunday, but nothing more satisfying than when it is done…made more perfect with a mocktail in hand!

So many cocktails have vodka in them and I cant drink it – (it makes me violently ill) so mocktails are perfect. My favourite is a Pomegranate Spritzer
Pomegranate Juice – Bickford’s of course

½ Sparkling Mineral Water

Slice of Lime

Combine ingredients in a chilled highball glass

over ice.

I always loved making shirley temples. Very easy, all you need to do is pour a little bit of red cordial into a glass and lemonade. Serve with some whipped cream on top with a cherry. Mmm, so delicous.

My favourite is actually really simple…Kahlua over ice with a nice fat slice of real orange in it…I discovered it recently and it certainly makes for a great flavour. Much better than just Kahlua and milk!

A simple one I do at home a lot over Summer contains Vanilla vokda, cranberry juice and lime. I don’t have any fancy cocktail tools with which to do much more!

Simple but so yummy – in a jug place some ice cubes and add fresh apple juice, ginger ale or ginger beer and top with soda or lemonade. Quantities will depend on individual taste. Throw in some slices of lime and lemon. Great as a mocktail or add to a shot of vodka or a glass of sparkling wine.

TROPICAL BLISS

My husband created this mocktail for me when I was
on a 3 and 1/2 month juice fast. The quantities are a guide. Adjust to
your own personal taste.

INGREDIENTS:
Splash of Coconut juice
Pulp of 3 or 4 large mangos
Juice of 2 oranges
Juice of 1/2 a large sweet pineapple
Juice of 1 or 2 limes depending upon size
Ice

METHOD:
Blend
like buggery pour in a glass and what the hell, tizz it up with a
little umbrella. Sink back into a comfy chair or lounge and simply have a
foodgasm without the food
.

I can’t go past a good fruit punch. Ginger beer, tropical fruit juice and some fruit pieces (from a can if running short on time). For extra fanciness, I like to make pretty ice cubes. Use large-ish containers (depending on what you’re going to serve the drink in) and fill with cut up pieces of fruit. I like strawberries and fresh mint. Add water and freeze. Instant drink prettiness! 🙂

Blueberry Blast Cocktail!

Stuff you’ll need:
Blue Curacao Liquer
Ouzo
Lemonade
Sugar Syrup
Blueberry Juice or Puree
Crushed Ice Cubes
Fruit Tingle Lollies
Fancy Cocktail Glasses (or plastic ones if you’re planning on getting plastered!)
A Babysitter (Either for your kids or excessively drunk guests?)

How to do it:
1. Grab all the ingredients in whichever quantity desired (depending on the amount of people you’re serving and how blotto you all wanna get!) and chuck them in a blender.

2. Give it a good shuzzing then pour into your fancy (or plastic) glasses. If you’ve got any Fruit Tingles left crush them up and sprinkle over the top. Or before serving the drinks you can even dip the edge of the glasses in sugar syrup then Fruit Tingles to make them look all pretty and give an awesome fizzy tingle with every sip you take.

3. Enjoy by sipping delicately or scull the whole thing in one shot, woohoo!!!

I was a Sex and the City addict in the late 90s and drank so many Cosmopolitans at seedy bars and friend’s places I’m surprised I can still stomach them. LOL

1 shot of vodka

1 shot of Cointreau

A squeeze of lime

Top up with ice and cranberry juice (these days good for UTIs!)

Delish!

This is my own recipe, a flash of inspiration from some leftover custard in a carton, can be non-alcoholic or a cocktail, simply add Kahlua or Tia Maria for the “adult” version.

100 g vanilla cheesecake frozen yogurt
whipped cream (optional)
