Orange, strawberry and mint mocktail

Christmas orange and strawberry mocktail recipe wellbeing retreat Spain

As it’s our festive issue, we are delighted to share one of our new mock-tails: orange, strawberry and mint alcohol-free cocktail. This is a great one for all the family to enjoy.

Orange has such an association with Christmas for many of us and brings a delicious festive twist. You can use fresh or frozen strawberries to make this cocktail. Remember, if you are using frozen strawberries, take them out of your freezer and allow them to soften before using. They don’t have to completely defrost, as they help to bring the slush type texture, but check that your blender can cope with them!

We love to add the sparkling mineral water, to give it that fizz feeling!

Place the frozen strawberries into the blender. Add the orange juice, lemon juice, rice syrup and blend until smooth. Add a little still water if needed.

Relax and rejuvenate at La Crisalida Retreats  

We serve a mocktail once each week, on a Friday night in Spain. It’s a lovely way to get together with friends – old and new – to sit back, chat and enjoy some relaxation time.
