Hello 2018, we are ready to kick goals this year! After an indulgent festive season, we’re ringing in the New Year with a healthy twist on our Cocktail Friday column. Tune in each Friday in January and be inspired to blitz, blend and shake up healthy cocktails that’ll make you feel great from the inside out. We think our January cocktails are perfect to enjoy on your wedding day while getting ready, or at the recovery party the next day; let’s call them the healthy answer to the hair of the dog!
This week the lovely Lola Berry blitzes up her summery slushie and tells us, “I love to whip up this slushie when I’m after something really refreshing in a hurry. If you feel like a more adult creation, try adding a dash of vodka to this!”
1 Lebanese cucumber, roughly chopped
1 mango, flesh roughly chopped
1⁄2 bunch of mint, leaves picked
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1 cup ice cubes
Pop everything into your blender and blitz it up to a slushie-like consistency. Pour into glasses and enjoy!
