Mocktail anyone?

There is an indisputable trend amongst millennials to cut back on alcohol, with more and more people enjoying low- or no-alcohol beverages for various reasons. If you’re looking for a drink that has all the fun but none of the booze this festive season, then here’s one to try!
We asked the talented team of mixologists at Alchemy at the Ballito Lifestyle Centre to give us a yummy alcohol-free adult drink that would make our taste buds soar … and they didn’t disappoint!

STRAWBERRY NOJITO (Mojito without the Rum)

Ingredients
10 mint sprigs, 4 fresh strawberries, juice of 2 fresh limes, ice, soda water, chilled, extra mint sprigs, lime slices, and fresh strawberries for garnish

Instructions
In a cocktail shaker, combine the mint sprigs and sliced strawberries; muddle. Add the lime juice and ice. Shake to blend and chill. Pour into a coupe glass half-filled with ice (Tip: crushed ice makes it that much better). Top with the soda water and stir. Garnish with mint sprigs and a fresh strawberry quarter.
(This can easily be made into an alcoholic version by adding a good quality white rum of your choice into your cocktail shaker!)
