Whether you’re the designated driver, looking to cut down your alcohol intake or taking part in Dry January, here are 5 mocktails to try on your next night out in the capital.

 

Pomegranate Mojito

This pomegranate mojito is packed full of flavour and offers an alternative to the mint-and-lime classic.

Separate the pomegranate seeds and place in an ice cube tray, freezing before serving.

Add pomegranate juice and lemonade to crushed mint and lime quarters. Then add the pomegranate ice cubes into the drink and top off with lime and mint.

Follow this recipe from BBC Good Food.

 

Pretzel Dulce De Leche Bourbon Shake

Inspired by a trip to Argentina, Natalie Migliarini - founder of Beautiful Booze – created this recipe after falling in love with dulce-de-leche.

In a blender combine 4 scoops of vanilla, a tablespoon of dulce-de-leche, milk and chocolate-covered pretzels.

Add more milk if the mixture is too thick or more ice cream is it’s a little watery.

Complete your drink by garnishing with more chocolate-covered pretzels.

 

Ribena Winter Berry Punch

This hot punch recipe is inspired by the British winter and features a lot of the flavours found in mulled wine.

Add Ribena Winter Spice into a saucepan with pomegranate juice, apple juice, lemon, a quarter of a tangerine and 6 clove buds.

Heat for 3-4 minutes and serve in a clear glass mug, using a cinnamon stick to garnish.

 

Pink Grapefruit Cooler

Bring back some summery vibes this January with a tangy and refreshing grapefruit mocktail.

Try this recipe from Club Soda to create a sugary syrup. Then mix with mint before pouring the fresh grapefruit, orange and lemon juice over the top.

Finish off by adding crushed ice and soda water then serve with a slice of grapefruit or orange.

 

Virgin Mary

A non-alcoholic twist on a classic cocktail, the Virgin Mary is very simple to make and can provide a much-needed energy boost during the day.

As with its alcoholic counterpart, combine tomato juice with lemon juice, pepper sauce, ground pepper and a dash of Worcestershire sauce – skipping just the vodka!

This recipe from The Spruce suggests a couple of additional spices to try if you want to add a personal touch to your drink.

Top off your drink with a celery stalk or your favourite Virgin Mary garnish.
