Preston's Potion

June 14th, 2019 Drink of the Week

frosty green drink

I got this recipe from a cute 80s mocktail book my sister-in-law gave me. Apparently this is a well-known soft drink in the Irish County of Meath. I actually really like it! It’s lemony refreshing with a nice earthy flavour from the parsley.


Juice of 2-3 lemons
Four sprigs of parsley
2 tsp sugar
3-4 ice cubes
Sparkling water


Put the lemon juice, parsley, sugar and ice cubes into a blender or nutra-bullet thingy and blitz until the parsley has been pulverised
Pour into a tall glass filled with more ice cubes, and top up with sparkling water
Stir and serve

Socialising Sober

Guest Posts

@suek: Probably the most terrifying thought when I first quit drinking was “How the hell am I going to socialise now?” I’m quite shy, and really hate big crowds and noisy scenes, so drinking was pretty much compulsory to calm my nerves, even before I stepped out the door.
