Refreshing Mocktails

We think you would all agree, this summer has been incredible hot and sunny so what better way to cool down than with a refreshing drink? We had a bit of a scan on our favorite inspiration source (Pinterest) and found some really delicious sounding recipes which we just had to try out ourselves. We have however changed the recipes slightly to just reduce the amount of sugar in the drinks but they still taste delicious and as an added bonus, they are slightly healthier than the original recipes.

Remove from the pan from the hob and let the mixture cool down. Using a shiv, pour the mixture into a container ( you want to remove all the lumps of blueberries so you only have the liquid left). Add 500ml of sparkling water to your container.

Add 1 tbsp of agave syrup – 1 tbsp of lime juice – stir – serve over ice and add mint, lime and some blueberries to garnish.
