Pretend it’s still summer with an Appletiser mocktail

appletiser mocktail 2

The weather’s turned rather grim here in the West Country. Just yesterday we were out paddling in the local stream, and then the heavens opened overnight and it suddenly feels rather chilly and wintry today. The slippers and big jumpers have come o ut and I think the central heating might be back on soon.

But that hasn’t stopped us from pretending it’s still summer. Appletiser sent me some bottles of their new Apple & Pomegranate sparkling fruit juice to try out, which are the perfect base for some summerlicious cocktails and mocktails, particularly if you have a bag of berries stashed in the freezer.

We enjoyed the Apple & Pomegranate juice just as it was – it’s deliciously refreshing and not overly sweet – but even more so in this fruity Big Apple Berry mocktail. It got a big thumbs up from my two girls!

The Big Apple Berry Mocktail

15ml sugar syrup
handful of frozen berries (I used raspberries and blueberries), defrosted, plus a few extra for garnish
1 bottle Apple & Pomegranate Appletiser

Pour the sugar syrup into a glass with ice. Add the handful of berries and mix it up with a stirrer.

Top with Apple & Pomegranate Appletiser and garnish with a few more berries. Drink it down and dream of summer!

Disclosure: I received complimentary bottles of Apple & Pomegranate Appletiser. No money exchanged hands and all opinions expressed are my own.
