5 non-alcoholic drinks for the Festive Season

glasses

Since

starting my chemotherapy treatment alcoholic drinks have been totally banned by the oncology doctor. Even alcohol in cough syrup!

So

I’ve been looking for something special and/or different to drink during the Christmas Festivities.

Belvoir Fruit Farms have three non-alcoholic wines. I’m going to try the Shiraz-without-a-hangover.

I love Fentimans Ginger Beer so I’m trying a bottle of their Rose Lemonade with my Christmas Dinner.

I’m going to make

Spiced Apple Fizz

and

Pineapple Coconut Fizz

from Sainsbury’s Tasty Christmas Mocktail Recipes.

There’s lots more recipes for mocktails on the Town and Country website. And even if the ingredients make most of the recipes too ambitious, the photos are lovely and could inspire some simpler adaptations I’m sure.

I like the look of mulled tea on the BBC Good Food website although I don’t happen to have any dried rose petals in the store cupboard. I’ve got the other ingredients so I’ll just omit the petals.

Thanks for reading my blog today.
