Tasty non alcholic drinks for a bbq. (not cola or lemonade.)
4 parts apple juice, 1 part elderflower cordial, bash up a bit of mint and cucumber, good squeeze of lemon/lime juice. Maybe a bit of basil if you’re feeling exotic. Plenty of crushed ice and top up with soda water. Better with a good measure of Hendricks as well, but almost as good without.Posted 4 years agosteveoathSubscriber
Had this dilemma as wife oath is pregnant. We found Eisberg Chardonnay (0.0%) in Morrisons. Was nice, actually does a good impression of wine. Also Bavaria 0.0% white beer is ace.
Have you got mint or lemon balm in the garden? If so you could make some flavoured iced tea with them.Posted 4 years agoJujuuk68Member
Get the kids to make their own Citron Pressé?
Or find someone with a sodastream, and borrow it for the afternoon, and pop down to a stockist for a few flavours.
You can carbonate anything you like with a sodastream, so make your own ginger beer or cloudy lemonade then just “gas” it up as and when you need it.Posted 4 years agoxherbivorexSubscriber
erdinger alkoholfrei can be bought in most larger sainsburys and tescos. it’s by far the nicest tasting non-alcoholic beer (if you like weissbiers, that is!).
ginger beer- fentimans. not the cheapest, but the best by a long way. it’s brewed rather than made like a fizzy pop, so it tastes more like a grown-up soft drink to me. in fact, any fentimans drinks (even the cola, it’s not like cola you know!)
bottlegreen and belvoir cordials are all good.Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
We do fizzy Ice Tea. We cold brew the Tea then strain to get the tannin out of it (through muslin) then add lime, sugar syrup, cucumber, mint lots of mint. We then top up the Tea with fizzy water to add the sparkle and Ice, not crushed Ice as it melts too quickly just the normal freezer chunks. Make sure it’s sweet though and you’ll find it disappears in about 2mins flat 😆
Also, white sweet tea, again lots of mint and cucumber, sugar syrup, serve cold with ice.
Or cold roobush tea, again over ice, sweet but with Ornages or mandarins sliced and either red berries or cherries.
Yum.Posted 4 years agosupersaiyanMember
Tonic water with Angostura bitters
^this, + ice n a slice. Very good G+T substitute. I’m told an old medic in Edinburgh used to try and dry out BBC media soaks with this in the 80s
Although to be massively pedantic in true STW fashion, Angostura bitters is alcoholic
tonic + juice
