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.
