Lime Mocktails

November 18, 2020
The Lime Team

Cheers, from Lime!

Following our Alcohol Awareness Week blog post, we decided to design and make our own mocktails. We hope you enjoy tasting them as much as we enjoyed making them!

 

Lime Festive Essentials

Ingredients:

Crushed ice (you can put ice cubes in a food processor or just use cubes if that’s easier)

Raspberry / pomegranate / cherry syrup (any red syrup or even juice can work well)

Apple juice (cloudy if possible)

Lemonade (or sparkling water if you prefer it less sweet)

A lime

 

Method:

Carefully pour a small amount of the syrup into the bottom of your chosen glass – about 2 tablespoons. Spoon the ice on top, almost filling the glass, and then pour in the apple juice being careful to pour the juice slowly down the side so that it doesn’t disturb the red layer of syrup. Cut the lime in half, squeeze the juice of one half into the glass and use the other half to cut a decorative slice for the top. Top with lemonade, slice of lime and any other festive decorations you choose!

 

Lime Health Mock Mojito

Ingredients:

Crushed ice (you can put ice cubes in a food processor or just use cubes if that’s easier)

Fiery ginger beer

2 limes (1 to chop and 1 to squeeze)

Fresh ginger root, sliced

Handful of fresh mint leaves

 

Method:

First slice one of the limes and ginger root (you want thin slices about the thickness of a £1 coin). Then, take a good handful of mint, strip the leaves from the stems (leaving a sprig to decorate) and put the leaves into a bowl. Use the end of a rolling pin (or you could use a spoon) to crush the leaves a bit to release the flavour).

Then, take a tall glass and alternately fill it with slices of lime, ginger, crushed ice and mint leaves. Finally, fill with ginger beer and decorate with a slice of lime, ginger and sprig of mint!

 

Lime’s Warm Winter Top-up

Ingredients:

Apple juice (clear if possible)

Cranberry or cherry juice

2 oranges

2 apples

Approx. 5 cloves

2 cinnamon sticks

Fresh ginger, sliced

Honey (to taste)

 

Method:

A great alternative to mulled wine! Slice the oranges, apples and ginger root. Aim for large slices about half a cm thick, but it doesn’t really matter! Pour the juices into a saucepan – you want about a 50/50 mix, so judge the quantity based on how many glasses you want to make. Then, add the sliced fruit, ginger, cloves and cinnamon sticks. Heat gently but don’t allow it to boil. Leave it to infuse on a low heat for at least 5-10 minutes. The longer you leave it, the stronger the flavours. Taste and, if needed, add a little honey. Use a ladle to pour into cups, avoiding the cinnamon and cloves if you can.
