Strawberry Cero

Strawberry Cero Cocktail

  • 1 measure of non alcoholic botanical spirit 
  • 25ml rose syrup
  • 200ml hibiscus tonic
  • Strawberry
  • Mint sprigs
  • Black peppercorns
  • Ice

Add the non alcoholic spirit to a cocktail shaker along with the syrup and a handful of ice.  Shake well and pour the drink (excluding the ice) into a suitable glass, garnish with a strawberry and the mint, add a few peppercorns to the glass and enjoy!

As party season is upon us, if you are the designated driver you can feel like you are missing out or indeed for those who don’t drink, the same old fruit juices and fizzy drinks get a bit samey, then this mocktail is for you.

I came across a brand of non alcoholic spirits but at over £20.00 a bottle I know people would begrudge paying that, why would you when you can buy alcohol for less!  I then stumbled across this particular brand at a leading budget supermarket for half the price!  With promises of juniper, coriander, hibiscus and lingonberry, it sounded like a good gin, but minus the alcohol.

I have to say, this tasted amazing and hard to tell there was no alcohol, the peppercorns gave a little spicy hit to the drink which was light, fruity and refreshing.  You will love this if you are a gin fan, it certainly is like a gin cocktail but without any alcohol whatsoever, go on, give it a try.  This will also be perfect with dry January just around the corner!
