Strawberry mocktails and cocktails

LanguedocLiving, Jun 5

These mocktails and cocktails are lovely for a summer's afternoon / evening, just as you’re craving the shade, and thinking about nibbles and drinks.

Strawberry mule cocktail

(Serves 1)

25-50ml rum
Dash of Angostura bitters
25ml lime
2 tsp sugar
4-5 ripe strawberries
Ginger beer, to top up
1 strawberry, to garnish

Press strawberries in a shaker then shake all ingredients apart from the ginger beer with cubed ice.

Fine strain into a highball or Collins glass over cubed ice and then top with ginger beer.

Garnish with half a strawberry on top and two tall straws.

Moscow mule

(Serves 1)

This recipe calls for vodka instead of rum.  

25-50ml vodka
Dash of Angostura bitters
25ml lime
2 tsp sugar
4-5 ripe strawberries
Ginger beer, to top up
1 strawberry, to garnish

Press strawberries in a shaker then shake all ingredients apart from the ginger beer with cubed ice.

Fine strain into a highball or Collins glass over cubed ice and then top with ginger beer.

Garnish with half a strawberry on top and two tall straws.

Fresh strawberry margarita mocktail

(Serves 4)

300g strawberries
125ml orange juice
125ml sparkling water
60ml lime juice
Ice
Coloured coarse sugar (for the rims of the glasses)
Lime for garnish (cut into rounds)

Place the strawberries, orange juice, sparkling water, lime juice and ice into your blender.

Blend on medium-high until it reaches a slushy consistency, add in ice as necessary.

Take a lime wheel and cut a small slit then wipe it around the rim of the glasses, creating moisture on the inside and outside of 4 glasses.

Pour the coarse sugar onto a plate and roll the glasses in it, collecting the sugar onto the lime juice on the rim.

Pour the Strawberry Margarita into 4 glasses, garnish with a lime wheel and serve!
