Of Cocktailmaker in Chesham eases you into the weekend
We’ve been working with Bucks County Council on their ’Dry January’ initiative and we’ve devised a number of non-alcoholic mocktails to promote the campaign to offer alternatives and show the wealth of delicious drinks, whether you’re thinking of abstaining from alcohol or fancy a change.
The classic sangria dates back to the Romans who conquered Spain and planted the vineyards that would one day become responsible for the very first sip of sangria. Local citizens created fruit punches from the red wines produced and they called these drinks sangria.
Sangria is a drink to be shared and we’ve detailed quantities for a large punch bowl. A litre of grape juice, 500ml of orange juice, 50ml of lemon juice, 25ml of lime juice. Top up with soda water or lemonade for a slightly sweeter taste. Add chopped fruit and ideally serve with ice or chill for an hour.
