Mocktail recipes to toast a healthy weekend

Mocktails, Mocktail recipes

The long weekend’s here (if you live in Australia… otherwise, you’re still got a regular weekend to celebrate, right?). We reckon that means it’s time to dust off those cocktail – or more appropriately, cocktail – shakers, folks.

We’ve asked three fabulous mixologists from some of Sydney’s hottest-right-now restaurant and bars to share some of their favourite mocktail recipes so you can do your best cool bartender impression at home.

Not only are they all super delicious, but they’re fresh and healthy too. Plus, your body will thank us, when you wake up minus the hangover.

Cheers – and happy weekend everyone!
