Grown up party drinks for little ones…

In our house, tonic water is known as ‘Mummy Drink’. Obviously Mummy drinks it with a splash of voddy on a Friday night, but the kids often ask for tonic water in a cocktail glass – to feel special.

Funnily enough, they are not interested at all in Daddy’s red wine – nor a substitute made from Ribena – so either I have raised a troupe of discerning junior drinkers or it is all about the showmanship and the bubbles…

With the party season almost upon us, here’s our pick of fun and stylish Winter mocktails which are sure to delight them…

The Sierra Mist Frost Bite mocktail is perfect for Narnia Ice Queens, or Frozen fans. You’ll find the recipe here.

Or how about a Kir Speciale, made with grenadine syrup, ice, lemonade and frozen berries?

Garnish cranberry juice with real cranberries and a sprig of thyme. (Tip: shop around for some unbreakable but dishwasher-proof picnic cocktail glasses, like these ones)

Shloer Celebration Group Reflective base

And for when it just has to be a champagne glass of bubbles, that family favourite Schloer now comes in a celebration bottle with a popping cork…
