Banish the January blues and with a ginger beer mocktail
Mr Foodie loves ginger beer, ginger sweeties and well basically ginger in any form! He’s also a bit poorly just now with man flu (snigger) so needs lots of fluids – surely some ginger will do his system some good?
As part of Dry January, the chaps at Fentimans asked us to come up with a mocktail using their wares.
So Dry January + Fentimans and Mr Foodie with a cold = Moscow Mule to me! Some warming ginger beer and vitamin-tastic apple juice to cheer yourself up in the dark days and nights.
Don’t be scared of ginger beer, this isn’t the strong stuff, sure it has a spicy bite but it’s without the intensity of Idris fiery ginger beer and what you’ll find in Holland & Barrett, nor has it the sweetness of ginger ale.
Non Alcoholic Moscow Mules
120ml Fentimans Gingerbread Beer
50ml Cloudy Apple juice (As it’s a bit more tangy I think)
18ml Lime Juice
Apple/mint to garnish
Add all ingredients in a glass and stir.
Garnish with apple slices and mint sprig. It’s that simple!

And no need for a cocktail shaker unless you fancy ginger beer over your table ;-)
Many thanks to Fentimans for providing samples.
