Recipes: Easy mocktails

Dry January doesn't have to be hard with these Highland Spring mocktails

Calgary Avansino's Zesty Ginger Lime Mocktail

Calgary-Avansinos-Zesty-Ginger-Lime-Mocktail-Tall-Glass-Lime

Ingredients
• 350ml of Highland Spring still water
• A two-inch piece of fresh ginger root, chopped
• 450ml of Highland Spring sparkling water
• 1 tsp zested ginger
• 1tsp Truvia (natural sweetener available in most supermarkets)
• 50ml lime juice (freshly squeezed)
• Ice
• Lime wedges, to serve

Method
First, you need to make the "ginger tea", which is best done ahead of time. In a saucepan, bring Highland Spring still water to a boil, add the ginger root and leave to simmer, covered, for 30 minutes. Drain the ginger root out and chill the remaining liquid in the refrigerator until you're ready to make your drink.

Next, mix the tea with the Highland Spring sparkling water, grated ginger, stevia and lime juice. Combine well and, when ready, pour your mocktail over ice and garnish with lime wedges.
