Clean Cocktails this Christmas

CleanCo’s answer to alcohol-free festivities.

Author Ryan Adair
Categories   Lifestyle

The festive season is naturally a time where friends, family and loved ones all get together to enjoy each other’s company. It’s a wonderful time of the year which is accompanied by an amount of food you’re never happy to disclose to anyone outside your family circle, and the meaning of ‘merry’ within ‘Merry Christmas’ really comes to light.

However, for anyone who is pregnant, this time of the year can be a real challenge. While everyone around is drinking various forms of alcoholic drinks, drinking Coke or lime and soda can seem repetitive and unexciting.

What if you could enjoy a G&T, Rum & Ginger or even a wide range of cocktails without the alcohol? At CleanCo, we produce a range of non-alcoholic alternatives to your favourite full-strength spirits. We want to give everyone the option of drinking clean, without sacrificing on the taste and experience of their full-strength cousins. Even better, not only does CleanCo provide a non-alcoholic alternative (>0.5% ABV) for pregnant women – but our entire range is vegan friendly, with zero sugar, zero sweeteners and only 14 calories per 50ml serve.

So, this Christmas why not ditch those sugary soft drinks and instead whip up a few of these Clean Cocktails to sip on instead.

Clean Paloma

Christmas brunch celebrations can generally be kicked off with a bit of bubbly floating about. You needn’t feel like you’re missing out with this non-alcoholic cocktail, perfect for the brunch occasion.

Ingredients

  • 50ml Clean T
  • 25ml pink grapefruit juice
  • 100ml light bitter lemon

Method:

1. Fill a large wine glass with ice and add your Clean T and pink grapefruit juice. Top it up with light bitter lemon and give it a nice stir to gently mix.

2. Garnish with a slice of pink grapefruit and a sprig of mint.

Winter G&T

Your classic juniper and citrus flavoured drink, given a winter twist with the addition of non-alcoholic mulled wine.

Ingredients

  • 50ml Clean G
  • 120ml premium light tonic water
  • 30ml non-alcoholic mulled wine

Method:

1. Add Clean G and tonic to a tall glass filled with ice. Leave enough room at the top of the drink to add your non-alcoholic mulled wine.

2. Garnish with a wheel of orange and an optional grind of black pepper.

Clean Cosmo

Cranberry and orange are a true Christmas flavour combination – what better time to enjoy this classic cocktail than during the festive season? One of the best tricks to replace an orange liqueur is by subbing it for some good quality orange marmalade instead – just make sure to give it all a good shake.

Ingredients

  • 50ml Clean V
  • 35ml cranberry juice
  • 20ml lime juice
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of orange marmalade

Method:

1. Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake hard and strain into a pre-chilled cocktail glass or coupe.

2. Garnish with a lime wheel.

Clean Stimulation

We all know the Christmas turkey can be a mountain to climb, but so is the impending after-dinner nodding off on the sofa. We all love a cheeky espresso martini, but who said you have to miss out? We have the perfect alternative. Get yourself back into the party spirit with this food coma saviour.

Ingredients

  • 50ml Clean R
  • 30ml coffee
  • 15ml fresh orange juice
  • 1 (1/6) wedge lime squeezed
  • 1 teaspoon of honey

Method:

1. Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake hard and strain into a pre-chilled cocktail glass or coupe.

2. Garnish with an orange twist.
