Rooibos and berry mocktail
 
Recipe adapted from Cooking from the heart 2
Serves 6 (2 litres)
 

 

This tea is very refreshing and a healthier alternative to fizzy, sugary cold drinks. Pack this for a picnic on a hot summer’s day.


8 Rooibos tea bags or flavoured Rooibos of your choice
1 cinnamon stick
4 whole cloves
6 thin slices ginger
4 cups (1 litre) boiling water
4 cups (1 litre) 100 % grape, apple or berry juice, chilled
lemon juice to taste
ice cubes, mint leaves, fresh fruit (like blueberries or grapes) or lemon slices to serve
 
Place tea bags, spices and ginger in a large glass jug and pour over boiling water. Stir well and allow to cool for about 2 hours. Remove tea bags, ginger and spices.
Add juice to the tea and season with lemon juice to taste.
Serve cold with ice and mint leaves, fruit and lemon. Thread blueberries or grapes and mint onto cocktail skewers to add to each glass – this will not only look impressive, but taste great too.
 
Tips
When buying fruit juice, remember to read the label and only buy pure or 100% fruit juice.
Flavoured Rooibos tea will be delicious in this, try a berry or spicy Chai flavoured tea.
