Healthy Mocktails: My Top 5 Recipes

Pomatini mocktail

17 Jul Healthy Mocktails: My Top 5 Recipes

Do you ever feel like having a special drink, but don’t want all of the sugar, calories and err… ‘artificial colour’ that accompanies alcohol?

Me too.

Enter the cocktail’s healthy cousin – the mocktail.

Still fun, still fancy, the healthy mocktail makes any day a glass-half-full kind of occasion. And, they can easily be turned into high-octane drinks… if you prefer not to mocktail, which makes them perfect for pre-mixing at parties. Simply add the spirit or liqueur of your choice as suggested below.

But remember, the human spirit is the most potent of all!

    Nach dem Weihnachtsmarktbesuch stellte ich fest, dass mein Schlüssel weg war. Unter anderen Schlüsseldiensten auch den Schlüsseldienst Klein angerufen. Herr Klein war sehr freundlich und hat einen kompetenten Eindruck gemacht. Ich habe nur 15 Minuten warten müssen. Transparente und überzeugende Vorabinformationen und Preisangaben. Er hielt sich an die Preisabsprache, die er am Telefon gemacht hatte. Ich kann den Schlüsseldienst Klein absolut empfehlenIch wünsche Ihnen frohe Weihnachten und weiterhin erfolgreiche Geschäfte.
