2016 - Up & Running!

January 09, 2016 | 0 Comments

How’s 2016 working for you so far? New year’s resolutions made and going well? Was more flavour and less alcohol on the list?

Chill out and ease into the new year with our favourite mocktail, The Lilly Pilly. It’s flavourful and alcohol-free so that you can stay clear headed and focus on your 2016 plans. It’s also a great drink to have in your beverage repertoire. You can serve it to anyone (pregnant friends, children and anyone else avoiding alcohol for whatever reason).

It’s quick and simple to make but looks and tastes like a million dollars.

Here’s the recipe.  Just three ingredients, plus ice.  Easy!



15 ml  Riberry Shrub

5-6      Mint Leaves (fresh)

45 ml  Club Soda (approx.)




  1. Half fill Old Fashioned glass with Ice
  2. Add Riberry Shrub.
  3. Add 4-5 fresh Mint Leaves and stir briskly (or muddle) to crush mix leaves and Shrub.
  4. Top with Club Soda.
  5. Add single Mint Leaf for garnish.
  6. Enjoy!
