Friday Night Cocktails

Can you call it a cocktail if it doesn’t have booze in it?

This week, I are be mostly having a cold. I’m also trying to recover from the excess of London Cocktail Week, so am going easy on the alcohol. I also bought too much mint. So three ways to put mint in your drinks that have no booze in them.

Of course you could just make a mojito and that would be good too!

First up is the obvious fresh mint tea. Mint leaves + boiling water = tea.

Then an idea I nicked from The Orchard Pig. Apple, grapefruit and mint.

What

60ml grapefruit juice

120ml apple juice

20ml mint simple syrup

ice

How

Put ingredients in glass.

Stir

Fill glass with ice, stir again

Then a smoothie, this one minus cinnamon, with 12 mint leaves added.

 

What are you drinking this weekend?
