Healthy summer mocktail recipes

We all know how it goes: the silly season is over, you've promised yourself you'll lay off the grog for a while and eat healthier. Then sunny Sundays and backyard barbies come around and you find yourself with a sausage sizzle in one hand and a beer in the other. The best part of summer socialising is the cocktails though, which is great news because they're the easiest drinks to sub out the alcohol and get some extra antioxidants. Give your liver a well-deserved break and explore the vitamin-packed mocktails below.

Virgin cranberry basil sangria

The best part about sangria is you can switch up your fruits to suit whatever is in season, so you can enjoy it year-round. This recipe uses cranberry and pineapple juice as its base, but you can change this depending on your taste. Feel free to experiment!

Grapefruit julep

Grab a silver cup and be transported to the American South for a day, just without the rum, brandy or whiskey. This recipe uses honey syrup, which can be infused with ingredients like ginger and rosemary for added depth.

Peach Melba punch

With peach slices and bobbing berries, the jug will be gone before you know it. This one is on the sweeter side, but if you're trying to cut back your sugar intake, you can always swap the lemonade for soda water.
