Strawberry & Coconut Water Daiquiri | Mocktail Recipe

After all of the Christmas and New Year celebrations, I know a lot of people are doing Dry January and avoiding alcohol for the month. I personally don’t drink so every day is dry January haha! I thought I’d share a mocktail recipe that is, as it sounds, alcohol free. Perfect for any dry-january-ers out there!

I used coconut water because, well, I love it! Since we went to Thailand in the summer and had it fresh straight from a coconut, I’ve been pretty obsessed with it. This version from Innocent is made using coconuts from Thailand, so it takes me way back. Tastes so good!

There are a lot of toxins in alcohol but I think a mocktail is the perfect mix. This is made using berries and along with the coconut water, makes it so naturally good for you and refreshing.

Strawberry & Coconut Water Mocktail

For two servings, you will need:

  • handful of hulled, chopped strawberries
  • handful of raspberries
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 300 ml Innocent coconut water
  • 3 tbsp sugar syrup (you could use agave nectar)

For the sugar syrup:

  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 6 tbsp water

What to do:

  1. First you need to make the sugar syrup. Heat the coconut sugar and water in a pan until it boils and makes a thick syrup. Make sure you are stirring often so it doesn’t burn. Take it off the heat and leave it to cool.
  2. Place the berries, coconut water and lime juice in a blender. Mix until smooth.
  3. Pour the sugar syrup into the blender and blitz.
  4. Pour into glasses and serve immediately. If you don’t like the seeds in the drink, then strain before serving. You can even add a fancy umbrella in your drink if you fancy it 😉

What do you think to the recipe? I’d love to hear if you try it.
