I’m not a big drinker, so when I go out with friends, I usually turn to lime and soda, fruit juices, or if I’m feeling more ‘fancy’, mocktails. As a big fan of cherries (alongside lime and watermelon, they are my favourite fruit flavours), I thought I’d share a couple of delicious mocktail recipes with you to enjoy, especially if you’re as much of a fan as cherries as I am.
Lush Cherry Crush Slushy Mocktail
I love the flavour combination of this – it really makes you feel as though you’re on a tropical beach instead of, say, your living room!
This cocktail is deliciously cooling when slushy, however, you can also swap crushed ice for ice cubes once the juices have been blended.
Serves: 4 Category: Drinks
250 millilitres Tart Cherry Juice (I use Pago Cloudy Cherry)
250 millilitres Pineapple Juice
250 millilitres Orange Juice (No bits/pulp)
2 cups Ice
1 Cherry per drink for garnish
Add pineapple juice, orange juice and ice to a blender. Blend until ‘slushy’
Pour slushy mixture into a glass, 2/3 full
Top slushy mixture with the tart cherry juice
Garnish with a cherry and enjoy
Cherry Watermelon Fizz Mocktail
This mocktail combines two of my favourite flavours – cherry and watermelon – and is refined sugar free! Oh, and it’s delicious, too.
If you want something fizzy, but want to avoid sugar, this refined sugar free mocktail is perfect for parties, BBQs, and warm, sunny days.
250 millilitres Sour cherry juice (I used Pago)
250 millilitres Watermelon flavoured seltzer water (I like Loveau)
1 cup ice
Fill your glass with ice
Pour on sour cherry juice and watermelon flavoured seltzer water
Stir and enjoy!
All of the above mocktails are super delicious, and are a great, refreshing treat for those looking for a non-alcoholic option for parties, meals, and when relaxing.
More about Pago Juices
I first tried Pago juices while on holiday as a kid, and I’m sure many of you have tried them on holiday, too. And now their premium juices are now available here in the UK! They’ve been producing high quality fruit juices since 1888.
Their flavours range from your standard orange and apple, to peach, strawberry, and fruit blends such as ACE (orange, carrot, and lemon, plus vitamins A, C, and E) and multivitamin tropical (apple, pear, orange, pineapple, peach, guava and more, plus a whole bunch of valuable vitamins).
You can buy Pago juices online from drink supermarket, and they are stocked in plenty of other UK based bars, restaurants and shops!
