Going dry for a month doesn't have to mean sticking to tap water or plain lemonade... you can easily make tasty drinks at home that will be the envy of everyone in the room!  We have gotten together six simple mocktail recipes, with the help of Nix & Kix, who have provided us with three deliciously different mocktail recipes using their bold, exciting drink flavours.

Plus find out about your chance to win a year's supply of Nix and Kix!

Mango Mule

35ml of mango juice 

15ml lime juice 

Dash of maple syrup 

Sparkles of cinnamon 

Nix & Kix Mango Ginger 

Garnish: rosemary sprig, lime wheel, chilli, cinnamon stick (optional) 

Pour mango juice, lime juice, maple syrup, and cinnamon into a highball glass, stir well to dissolve the cinnamon and top with ice. Fill with Nix & Kix Mango Ginger. Add garnish. 

Arnold Palmer 

1 part iced tea 

1 part lemonade 

This is another classic mixed drink, and it requires only two ingredients! Simply mix the iced tea and lemonade in a glass filled with ice cubes, and garnish with a slice of lemon if you fancy it. A favourite of golfer Arnold Palmer, you’ll see why when you taste it! 

Peach and Vanilla iced tea 

35ml peach puree 

6 fresh mint leaves and 2-3 peach wedges 

15ml fresh lemon juice 

10ml maple syrup 

Nix & Kix Peach Vanilla

Garnish: Mint sprig, lemon wedge, chilli 

For the puree, cut fresh peach in small pieces, and blend with a dash of water, until smooth. Add all other ingredients in a glass jar. Add ice and stir well to release all the aromas. Top up with Nix & Kix. Add garnish. 

Nojito 

1 oz lime juice 

4 oz lemonade/club soda 

6 mint leaves 

2 tsp of brown sugar 

Add the mint leaves, lime juice and brown sugar into a glass. Muddle the mint leaves (ideally with a muddler, but a teaspoon will do the job!). Fill the glass with ice cubes, add the lemonade, and stir to mix up the sugar. Garnish with another mint sprig.  

Virgin Pina Colada 

1 part pineapple juice 

1 part coconut cream 

1 cup crushed ice 

Maraschino cherry and pineapple wedge for garnish 

Pina coladas are one of those drinks that taste just as good (better even?) without alcohol. Just mix the pineapple juice and coconut cream and add to a glass of crushed ice to enjoy this tropical mocktail. 

Cucumber Mojito 

15ml fresh lime juice 

6 fresh mint leaves 

Dash of agave syrup 

Nix & Kix Cucumber Mint 

Garnish: Cucumber slice, mint sprig, chilli

Clap mint leaves in your hands to release the aroma, rub mint leaves around the rim of a highball glass and drop in. Pour lime juice and agave into glass and add cucumber slices. Half fill the glass with crushed ice and use a bar spoon to stir the mixture to blend and release aromas. Top up with crushed ice and Nix & Kix Cucumber Mint. Add garnish.
