2 non-alcoholic drinks that'll bring the taste minus the hangover this Christmas
This post is proudly brought to you by Edenvale Wines
The Christmas and New Year period is known as the time of indulgence. Indulging in food, drink and all the good times. I don't know about you, but the holidays also signal a time of significantly increased stress for me. Work deadlines, looking after my energetic daughter and getting everyone's gifts organised (why is that always left to us women?!)
So amongst all the increased stress, I have zero time for a hangover. Thanks to Edenvale Alcohol removed wines, I'm getting the taste minus the hangover this Summer. I also know that I’ll feel better within myself (mentally and physically) holding off on the booze this year.
Here are my two go-to drinks that are bringing me Christmassy/Summery vibes without the next-day headache.
Strawberry & Watermelon mocktail
1/2 punnet strawberries
1/2 cup watermelon
Edenvale Pinot Gris
Lemonade or Soda Water
Blitz strawberries & watermelon and pour 2 tablespoons of the mix into glasses
Pour over Pinot Gris till the glass is 3/4 full
Pour lemonade or soda water to fill glass
Garnish with mint and ENJOY!
Merry Christmas Mulled Wine
Edenvale Cabernet Sauvignon
1 sliced orange
8 whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
2 star anise
3 tablespoons raw sugar
Combine all ingredients in saucepan and stir.
Simmer. Heat until the the mix reaches a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Strain using a fine mesh strainer.
Garnish with a slice of orange and a cinnamon stick and enjoy!
