The ‘AAOK’ mocktail

IMG_9108

This recipe comes from ‘Dr Mock’ a.k.a my brother-in-law who has much fun concocting fancy non-alcoholic drinks! He used a store bought basil and cucumber syrup but given I can’t find it where I live I’ve devised a way to make it at home. If you can’t source lingonberry syrup cranberry will suffice.

Ingredients:
Handful of basil leaves
1 cup cucumber chunks
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
Dash of lingonberry syrup
Ice
Fizzy water
1 fresh cherry

Method:
First make your basil and cucumber syrup by combining the first four ingredients in a saucepan and simmering gently until the sugar has disolved. Leave to cool then remove the basil leaves and cucumber chunks

To make each drink:
Put ice in the bottom of your glass then pour over approx 10ml syrup
Add fizzy water and a dash of lingonberry syrup
Garnish with a cherry sliced sideways so it releases a bit of juice into the soda

Enjoy!
