DELICIOUS NEW YEAR'S EVE DRINKS IDEAS - WITHOUT BOOZE

Parties and get-togethers are often filled with sweet, alcoholic drinks and if you’re trying to make healthier choices, it’s not always easy to know what to drink instead without feeling deprived. Here are a few delicious and refreshing alternatives for you to try.


Cucumber, mint + lemon fizz

Serves 6

1.5ltr sparkling water

Half a cucumber, sliced

10 mint leaves

1 lemon, sliced

Put all the ingredients in a large jug, chill and serve


Sparkling cherries

30mls Cherry Active (concentrated Montmorency cherry juice https://amzn.to/2CFg4lx)

240mls sparkling water

Add sparkling water to the Cherry Active and serve with ice.


Sparkling lime water

Exactly as it sounds … Sparkling water with a good squeeze of fresh lime juice over ice.

Simple and refreshing – and you can guarantee a pub will have the ingredients (you’ll likely need to remind them about the fresh lime and not cordial).


Garden Sour

Seedlip Garden (a distilled, non-alcoholic drink), 50ml

Cloudy apple juice, 35ml

Lemon Juice, 15ml

Cider vinegar, 5ml

Sprig of rosemary & thyme 


Seedlip is premium distilled non-alcoholic drink and it’s making an appearance in many of the top bars. Find it at www.seedlipdrinks.com


DA-SH Water https://dash-water.com

British sparkling water infused with fruit or vegetables and doesn’t contain any sugar or sweeteners. Choose from raspberry, lemon, cumber and blackcurrant


Aqua Libre https://aqualibra.com

Sparkling water, natural fruit flavours and a dash of lemon. Choose from tangerine, grapefruit and pineapple, raspberry and apple


Sparkling kombucha

Kombucha* is a fermented drink made from tea, sugar, and “SCOBY” (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast). It makes a nice alternative to sparkling soft drinks and it is known for being full of naturally occurring vitamins, acids, and beneficial bacteria.

I like Equinox (www.equinoxkombucha.com), Jarr (https://jarrkombucha.com), Profusion (http://www.profusionorganic.co.uk) and Remedy Kombucha (https://remedykombucha.com.au)


* If you are going through cancer treatment consuming foods containing live bacteria, such as kombucha, may not be recommended. This is because your immune system is weakened, so you are potentially more susceptible to infection, including a food-borne infection. Please check with your healthcare team before consuming.
