As the weather is getting warmer and the fun and exciting outings with your family, friends and loved ones may seem rather far away, we thought of sharing with you some very delicious and most importantly easy to make cocktails at home. Below you will find three recipes of alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions that any family member could enjoy. Do not worry, there is no fancy equipment needed, just pick your favourite flavour and follow the instructions or the video below! So, without further ado, let’s make some cocktails!


KIWI MOJITO (4 portions)



3 tablespoons sugar diluted in 80ml fresh lime juice
1.5 medium size kiwi (blended)
200ml cloudy apple juice
200ml soda
150ml rum (skip if making a mocktail)
Fresh mint


Blender or Food processor

Jug or a large Bowl 


For this cocktail you will need a jug or a bigger sized container (you can even make your drinks in a bowl) as you will be making 4 portions.

Firstly blend 1.5 medium size kiwi in a food processor – if you do not have one you can crush the kiwis using a fork or a muddler *

Squeeze fresh limes and add the sugar (we used white caster sugar) to the mixture – give it a stir until the sugar is dissolved.

*tip when you shop for kiwis make sure that they are not too hard and if you would like your kiwis a bit juicier, store them at room temperature, they will ripen and taste better


  1. Pour lime-sugar mixture into your chosen container
  2. Add blended kiwis
  3. Pour cloudy apple juice
  4. Add a handful of ice
  5. Stir until well mixed
  6. Pour soda (you can also use sparkling water for this)
  7. Add 12-15 fresh mint leaves
  8. Pour the rum (skip this step if you are making a non-alcoholic version)
  9. Give it another quick stir
  10. Divide the drink between 4 glasses
  11.  Garnish with mint sprigs and kiwi slices (optional)




Since this drink is best served shaken, we chose to use a glass jar with a lid. If you do not have any jars available, takeaway cups or even a lunch box with a lid would do just fine!
