For Mums Recipes Summer

Fruity Summer Mocktails

Written by Eleanor Weeks

Nothing beats a summer cocktail when it’s hot and sunny,
Especially when you’re tired of hearing them yell “Mummy!”
All of these drinks are perfect for BBQs or a summer party,
With these recipes, there’s room for you to get arty!

Watermelon Slushie


Not only will this delicious slushie go down a storm, but it’s also a super healthy alternative to traditional ice slushies that are packed with sugar!


One small watermelon, cubed
400ml unsweetened almond milk
A few mint sprigs to decorate

How to make:

Simply blend your watermelon cubes with your almond milk and pour into a fancy glass… don’t forget to add your mint sprigs for a sophisticated decoration!

Sparkly Strawberry Lemonade


This one’s great for those after a little bit of fizz…the non-alcoholic kind!


115ml ginger ale
115ml lemonade
3 strawberries

How to make:

Remove the tops of two of your strawberries before cutting them into fine pieces. Then, pour your lemonade and ginger into your glass before sprinkling the strawberries on top. Use your third strawberry as a garnish and enjoy!

Shirley Temple


Named after the famous curly-haired child film star this is a refreshing and sweet drink.


100ml ginger ale
30ml grenadine
30ml fresh lime juice
Fruit for garnish (optional)

How to make:
Add the ginger ale into a glass over some ice, followed by the lime juice and then the grenadine, which should sink to the bottom. Add fruit of your choice to garnish!

Pineapple Orange Mocktail



Crushed ice
200ml pineapple juice
25ml fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon of honey

How to make:

All you need to do to make this fresh and healthy mocktail is combine pineapple juice, orange juice and a dash of honey before pouring over crushed ice. The perfect colourful and fruity treat!

Virgin Mojito


I had to find a non-alcoholic version of my favourite. You can choose your mixer with this recipe but I personally use soda water.


15 mint leaves
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 lime, cut into wedges
1 tablespoon sugar syrup
1 tablespoon simple sugar syrup
Plenty of ice
Ginger ale/soda water/sparkling water/Sprite

How to make:

Crush mint leaves and lime wedges using the end of a wooden spoon! Next, add sugar syrup and sugar before shaking the mixture well. Pour the mixture into three glasses and top up with some ice. Add your mixer, which is soda water in a traditional mojito, but if you fancy something different try sparkling water, lemonade or ginger ale.

Pina Colada Mocktail


Try making this much-loved cocktail with no alcohol for little ones after something a bit fancier!


2 ripe bananas
A handful of freshly diced pineapple chunks
200ml pineapple juice
50ml coconut milk
Ice cubes
Pineapple wedges to garnish

How to make:

 Blend your bananas, pineapple juice and coconut milk with ice cubes and then finish with a wedge of pineapple for a tropical decoration!

1 bottle of white grape juice

Virgin Sangria (jug/pitcher)


This is a great one to share with the girls and I’m pretty sure the kids will enjoy a glass too.


750ml unsweetened grape juice
160ml apple juice concentrate
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 small unpeeled lemon, sliced
1 small unpeeled apple, cored and cut into eight segments
