Are you looking for a refreshing drink this summer?
Are you looking for a sweet drink which can be enjoyed by all your family?
Here’s the recipe for you – Ruby Red Mocktail!
Mocktail is a non- alcoholic drink, usually made up of fruit juices, soft drinks, herbs and flavorings. This recipe of Ruby Red Mocktail contains mainly 3 ingredients which are cranberry, rosemary and lemonade. It is super easy to make. I decided to give it the name of ‘ruby red’ due to its colour from the cranberry juice.
This recipe offers plenty of micronutrients such as vitamin A, Bs and C, iron, calcium and proanthocyanidins. Proanthocyanidins are a type of anti-oxidants specifically found in cranberries which prevents urinary tract infections. If, you suffer from frequent urinary tract infections I suggest that you include more recipes with cranberries to your diet. In addition, since this recipe is non-alcoholic therefore it is ideal for all your family even if you have young kids. In fact, I would encourage you to try this recipe for your child since it offers a sweet taste but contains much lower sugars and calories than sugary drinks such as soft drinks.
