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.


60ml grapefruit juice

120ml apple juice

20ml mint simple syrup



Put ingredients in glass.


Fill glass with ice, stir again

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


What are you drinking this weekend?
