Here’s a list of all my favorite mocktails to fight of the blazing summer heat.
3. Club Soda or Fizzy Water
5. Tobasco Sauce (Yeah right!)
6. Worcester sauce
1. A good Juicer (We recommend Breville)
3. Cocktail Shaker
To beat the summer heat this combination of lime, strawberries, sugar blended together with some crushed ice and topped off with a little Pineapple is simply put ideal. I always prefer using good quality fresh fruits rather than any bottled or canned juices or fruit flavors to get the best taste.
This is another one of my favorites and most recommended summer coolers since the ingredients are readily available and is easy to prep. All you’ll require is 500 grams of sugar, 2-3 cups of fresh lime squeeze, 5 cups of water. To start off stir 2 cups of water and the sugar to prep up the syrup. Get an another jar and stir up the leftover water and 2 cups of lime squeeze.Mix it all up, give it a nice stir, add some crushed ice or refrigerate it of 1-2 hours since it best tastes chilled.
One gets a taste of many flavors in this drink such as lemons, pomegranates, ginger ale, seltzer and is best served in wine glasses. To prepare it, mix ginger ale with the pomegranate juice, throw some crushed ice into the wine glasses then mix the the seltzer with the pomegranate juice and pour and you’re ready to serve.
A very popular summer cooler is the sangria and while it’s alcoholic version is best served with wine this version is a combination of lots a fruits like apples, bananas, grape juice, peaches, mandarins, lemon and some cinnamon. Keep it refrigerated for 1-2 hours and preferably in a pitcher. It’s the perfect drink for the weekend family get together and can easily be prepared in large quantities.
The Virgin Mary is the non-alcoholic version of what you may know as the bloody mary and to prep it all u need is a tomato, 2-3 limes, some Worcester sauce and few drops of Tabasco sauce.
Non Alcoholic Fizz
This is one drink most women tend to love and is prepared using orange and cranberry juices combined together with some club soda. Grab a shaker and give the juices and some crushed ice a good shake and then add the chilled club soda just before it’s served. To top it off you can use a number ingredients such as fine slices of orange, pineapple, kiwi etc.
Like the sangria mentioned above this too needs no alcohol unlike it’s half brother and is loved by people of all ages and the ingredients needed for it are mint leaves, ice, lime juice, some sugar syrup and some club soda. Refrigerate a blend of all these for about 1 hour. The mint and lime make it a healthy choice and one of the best drinks to kill the summer heat.
Classic Shirley Temple
This is another drink loved by almost everyone. Ingredients needed are 2-3 limes, 3 tsp of grenadine, 2 tsp orange juice and a slice of orange or cherry. Chill it for 1-2 hours for the best experience.
