For those who like a little fizz…

Raspberry Rascal

Now this requires a little bit of preparation but is well worth the wait.

Depending on how many you’re looking to make you can amend this recipe as you like. This recipe serves 2.


    • 1/2 bag of frozen raspberries
    • Lemonade
    • Ginger ale
    • A handful of mint
    • Ice cubes


1. Pour half a bag of frozen raspberries into a pan and heat them up until they make a thick syrup-like mixture. This should take roughly 10 minutes.

2. Once you have your mixture. You will need a sieve to get rid of the seeds from the mixture. This is not a smoothie so we want to remove the seeds for our raspberry madness mocktail.

3. Leave the sieved mixture for a few hours and chill in the fridge. (You could do this prep the day before you’re hosting a party and get it out the way).

4. Grab a jug from the cupboard.

5. Fill with ice.

6. Poor the mixture into the jug and top up with 2/3 lemonade and 1/3 ginger ale.

7. Add some mint into the pitcher and stir.

Now you have your Raspberry Rascal mocktail pitcher to share.
