Mocktail O’Clock with Welch’s!

Comments Off on Mocktail O’Clock with Welch’s!

I love a bit of wine (a lot of wine…) but I also like to have options which are not necessarily alcoholic. Maybe I’m just thirsty, maybe I haven’t eaten, maybe I have a heavy work day the next day – whatever the reason I may want to abstain from alcohol without abstaining from ‘drinking’. I’ve always loved Welch’s for their purple grape juice – a dense grape juice that is like wine only non-alcoholic. Well, those lovely folk at Welch’s have seen the demand and have created two new amazing juices. I got to try both and some absolutely brilliant mocktails that I think you’ll absolutely love.  They were kind enough so send me not only the mocktail recipes I loved but a bit about each of the new juices. Head over to the supermarket and indulge your guests in some delightful drinks this summer!

Delightfully refreshing, 100% Pure Rosé Grape Juice includes a blend of White and Red Grapes for a wonderfully uplifting taste, bursting with flavour. Best served chilled for a revitalising experience, it’s a healthy substitute to wine during those nights when alcohol is off the menu.
