Black Forest Mocktail

Black Forest Mocktail

How are we all, on this fine Friday 13th? Any horror stories to speak of?

Today, I submitted a design assessment I’d been working on for the last month.

Feeling elated, sleep deprived and slightly delirious, I wanted to celebrate with a refreshing, zesty, fruity mocktail.

Something like a nice daiquiri, but without the bevvy.

I’m now curled up on the couch, sipping on this, and it’s lovely, so I’m sharing it with you…


Ingredients (Fills a 1 litre jug)

  • 3 x handfuls of frozen black forest fruits
  • 4 x strawberries
  • 500ml x bitter lemon juice
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 x handfuls of ice

Blitz the ingredients together then, if you want it extra smooth, put it through a sieve. Otherwise, fill your jug/pitcher, pop in your leftover lime rinds and add some extra strawberries if you desire.


I’m sure a few shots of rum, vodka, or even prosecco would get on well with this drink, if you’re looking for something with a kick!

Remember it’s Mammy’s Day on Sunday. I’m sure she’d love a wee jug of fruity refreshment, with or without the bubbles!

Happy Friday, everyone, and have a fabulous weekend. Hope it’s filled with lots of comforting treats and tasty morsels.

Chin chin!
