Merry Christmas everyone! As a gift to all my readers, subscribers and visitors here – let me share with you a couple of non-alcoholic Christmas drink recipes which you can easily prepare this holiday season.
Of course, you can always buy sparking apple cider and other non-alcoholic ready-to-drink alternatives in the grocery but wouldn’t it be fun if you make one on your own?
Thus, now presenting…
Christmas Fruit Smoothie Recipe
- 1 cup strawberries
- 1 large banana
- 1 cup honeydew melon
- Mint leaves
- Crushed ice
Place all the fruits, mint leaves and ice in a blender and blend until smooth and frothy. Add sugar according to desired level of sweetness. Serves 2 people.
Virgin Mimosa Mocktail Recipe:
- Sparkling cider
- Fresh orange juice
- Lemon juice
- Lemon zest
Mix equal parts of cider, orange juice and lemon juice in a pitcher. Chill the mixture.
Put sugar onto a saucer and press a champagne glass with a wet rim upside down to it. Pour the chilled virgin mimosa onto the glass, careful not to touch the sugar on the frosted rim.
Garnish with lemon zest and serve.
That’s it! And also, check out this post from last year too: How To Make Eggnog
