The Holidays are coming very soon aka an overload of food & drinks. Of course this is super nice and part of this cosy season with family and friends, but I find it very important to live a healthy life so this is always a time where I look for small solutions so I don’t go overboard with unhealthy food and drinks. But no worries, it’s not like I’m going to skip on my grandmother’s croquettes ;).
During an entire year, I always have several months in which I don’t drink alcohol. Don’t get me wrong, I love a nice cocktail with friends, a good glass of red wine during dinner, a glass of champagne or a beer from time to time. But when I do go through an alcohol free month, I have more energy, I’m less tired, it just feels good to not drink alcohol from time to time. I just do this for myself and there are a lot of very nice non alcoholic alternatives and there is one in particular I’d like to share with you today!
Meet Lyre’s! With Lyre’s you can make the most amazing mocktails and it is from now on available in Belgium. Perfect timing, right? They offer two beverages: Amaretti (Amaretto minus the alcohol) and Dark Cane Spirit (a brown rum without alcohol). And this last one happens to be in one of my favorite cocktails.
I love a good Dark & Stormy which is with rum, so with Lyre’s I can now make my favorite cocktail but alcohol free. Let me share the recipe for this wonderful mocktail. Guess I’ll be drinking this one often the upcoming weeks.
Non-alcoholic Dark & Stormy
- 5cl Lyre’s Dark Cane Spirit
- 1/2 Lemon juice
- 10cl Ginger beer
- Lemon slices to top it off ;)
Lyre’s Amaretti & Dark Cane Spirits are now available at Delhaize (Super Delhaize & most AD Delhaize’s or online via prik&tik).
