Di’s Healthy Cocktail Is Delicious And Nutritious

healthy cocktail

A healthy cocktail should be delicious as well as a little nutritious! This one is tarty and sweet, packed full of vitamin C, natural sugar and fresh mint, giving you a refreshing kick! It’s perfect for a warm Christmas Day. You can enjoy this either as it comes or naked (without booze).

I’ll be enjoying this healthy cocktail over the summer, ideally on a clifftop or at a backyard lunch with family. You could also take it on a beach picnic or a longer hike – you’ll just need to enjoy it sans ice.

I hope you love it.

  3. Add ice to fill the glass.
