Mocktail: Alcohol-Free Cocktails

The summer heat is killing me... well, if you are in your last month of pregnancy like me, it would feel like it! It would be very nice if you could spruce yourself a nice "mojito" with lots of ice and mint leaves in it. That would really be refreshing! And of course, you can always whip up a nice "mocktail", a cocktail minus the alcohol of course, and it will be just as refreshing and very safe both for you and your baby. There are lots of interesting recipes on the internet about this. You can always use a fruit tea infusion or fruit juice as the base and just syrups and refreshing fruit slices (citrus!) and ice cubes, and voila: a mocktail!

I found this recipe on one of the promotional ads of a drugstore here and thought that it looks easy to prepare and should give it a try.

It is called Lemon-Lime Shot. You will need to cook / boil 240 mL of water with 4 branches of rosemary, 1 tbsp. of peppercorns, 120 g honey and a pinch of coarse salt in a pan, until the mixture becomes thick in consistency. Allow the mixture to cool and strain. Place the rosemary syrup, juice from 1 lime and 1 lemon and 720 mL water in a pitcher and mix well. To serve, place ice cubes in glasses, pour in the drink and garnish with blackberries.

Enjoy your drink!
