Morning Mocktails: our favourites and pairing them with hen activities!
We’re loving mocktails at the moment! For all those that have never tried one, mocktails are essentially cocktails without the alcohol; delicious drinks that even the designated driver can enjoy! Whether you’re in charge of keeping your hen party organised, you want to enjoy the night without getting messy or you’re trying to top up on the vitamins, mocktails are a great drink choice and they look as good as they taste.
Equally perfect for summer (for when the sun finally makes an appearance) we’ve picked out some of our favourite mocktails. Near the top of the list is the Tornado Twist, which is an easy mix of cranberry juice, raspberry juice, lemon and lime flavoured sparkling drink and crushed ice. Perfect for lazy summer afternoons in the park and wonderful for topping up on the vitamin C. If you fancy sticking with more traditional cocktails (minus the booze!) then why not try making a virgin Pina Colada? It’s made with crushed ice, pineapple juice, milk, cream and sugar. To make it super pretty serve it in a hollowed-out pineapple. Or why not try a Shirley Temple- made with orange juice, lemon and lime sparkling water, grenadine, crushed ice and a cherry on top!
Mocktails are also great for the morning after. If you’ve had a busy hen do, with activities and the spa all day followed by a night-to-be-remembered then you’re head might be spinning just a little the next day. Fruit juice is proven to help a hangover as it replaces all the vitamins and nutrients that you’ve lost, so help yourself along with a tasty morning mocktail! If you’re looking for somewhere to drink some fancy mocktails then why not check out some of our nightlife activities? Head over to the boogie bus, a karaoke bar or a male strip show and have an amazing time with the girls and, if you’re drinking the mocktails, you’re sure to remember the whole amazing evening!
