When alcoholic drinks are off the menu, you need some delicious alternatives! Thirst-quenching, perfect for all ages and a whole lot healthier than the grown-up versions, make sure that you have a selection of these non-alcoholic recipes on offer at your party.

Fresh and Fruity

Carrot and Cranberry Cocktail
An ideal concoction for the body-conscious guest.

  • 100ml carrot juice
  • 100ml cranberry juice
  • 2 teaspoons of honey (or 2 teaspoons of sweetener)
Simply pour all the ingredients into a shaker, mix with ice and shake well to let ingredients combine well. Strain into a glass and serve.

Ginger Fizz
Serve in the summer months as a refreshing treat.

  • 100ml natural apple juice
  • 50ml pear juice
  • 100ml ginger ale (diet is acceptable)
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 small piece of ginger root
Pout the apple, pear and lemon juice into a shaker. Grate the ginger root to release the flavour. Put the ingredients into a glass and top up the mixture with the ginger ale. Stir and garnish with some grated ginger root.

Virgin Caipirinha
The alcoholic version has a strong kick. This alternative is all sweetness and light.

  • Half a lime
  • Half a lemon
  • Half an orange
  • Ginger ale
  • Sugar cubes
Dice the lime, lemon and orange into small pieces. Place the pieces in the bottom of a glass. Add a sugar cube to the mix and plenty of crushed ice. Top the glass with the ginger ale and garnish with a sprig of mint after some stirring the mixture thoroughly.

Rich and Creamy

Tropical Delight
Bring a bit of Caribbean flavour to your home - without the rum!

  • 50ml coconut milk
  • 80ml pineapple juice
  • 80ml mango juice
  • 1 small banana
Peel the banana and place in a blender with the juice and coconut milk. Add in some ice and blend for 10 seconds. Pour in a large glass and serve with a straw with a garnish of sliced pineapple on the rim.

Lilac Lovely
The pretty colour of this low fat cocktail is reason enough to prepare it. Add to the mix the fact that it is packed with antioxidants and is fairly low in calories and you have a winner!

  • 2 generous tablespoons of low-fat plain yoghurt
  • 150ml grape juice
  • One punnet of fresh blueberries
  • Handful of fresh blackberries
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and lilac in colour. Add water or more juice if you want a thinner consistency. Pour into a glass and garnish with one or two berries on top.

Prairie Oyster
Not for the faint-hearted, this is a famous hangover cure and a drink in its own right: worth trying at least once!

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 egg yolk
  • A sprinkle of salt
  • A sprinkle of black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons tomato ketchup
  • Dash of white wine vinegar
Rinse a glass with the olive oil and discard the excess. Add the ketchup and the egg yolk before seasoning the Worcestershire sauce and white wine vinegar with the salt and pepper. Then its time to close your eyes and send it down the hatch!
