A refreshing winter mocktail made with elderflower, blood oranges and rosemary…
After all the amount of drinking that everyone has been doing during the holidays, it’s a good idea to try and detox the body from the alcohol during the month of January. In the UK we call it “Dry January”, but in Finland it’s called “Sober January”. Fentimans are running a Dry January campaign this month, and to take part in this campaign, I created this lovely Fentimans Wild English Elderflower & Blood orange mocktail.
I can’t get over how pretty red or blood oranges are, every year I make sure that I stock up with them when they first make an appearance in the shops as I absolutely love citrus. They’re my favourite citrus fruits after loquats! Blood oranges have a distinctive taste compared to other oranges, they’re soft and they have a raspberry like taste that I really love.
For this mocktail I’ve chosen a Wild English Elderflower Fentimans drink, it’s a fermented botanical drink with wild elderflower extract. I mixed it with blood orange juice, and added a sprig of rosemary for a distinctive taste. I love how the elderflower drink is pale and sweet, but once you pour in the blood orange juice the mocktail comes to life and the combination is just divine!
These mocktails are also great for the drivers, or just people who don’t wish to consume any alcohol.
Now go and make yourself a jug of this gorgeous mocktail, and let me know what you think!
