It’s been a glorious summer and no doubt you’ve had one or two cocktails as you gently fried in the heatwave. Maybe it’s time to give your liver a little break without compromising on taste. So here’s a refreshing cocktail that’s also alcohol free! It uses the latest non-alcoholic spirit from Seedlip which also claims to be sugar, calorie and sweetener free too… so all is good.
First you need to make a Rooibos & Tumeric cordial…
- 25g/2tbsp Rooibos Tea
- Pinch ground Turmeric
- 500g caster sugar
- 250ml hot water
Add the ingredients to a bowl and stir well. Leave to infuse until cold. Strain and bottle.
Now for the cocktail…
NB: This recipe makes a big batch which you can bottle and store for up to a week. Amend the measurements if you want to try a small one first

- 42 125ml almond milk
- 125ml whole milk
- 190ml Rooibos & turmeric cordial
