Much like an Irish Coffee, this Clansman’s Coffee cocktail combines coffee and whisky. This one obviously contains scotch rather than Irish Whiskey, and it does also include a brown sugar rim. Whilst you can add sugar to taste, the sugar rim is a sweet addition. Topped with whipped cream and grated chocolate, this boozy coffee is the perfect after-dinner drink!

Clansman’s Coffee Ingredients

30ml of Scotch Whisky
100ml of Fresh Black Coffee
Whipped Cream, for garnish
Grated Chocolate, for garnish
Brown Sugar, to rim the glass

Method
  1. Run a Wedge of Lemon along the rim of a heat-proof glass and dip in brown sugar
  2. Add the scotch to the glass and top up with the coffee
  3. Add sugar to taste
  4. You can float some whipped cream on top and add some grated chocolate

Ok, so we’ve made it to January. We’re almost halfway through, and for some of us, that means we’re nearly halfway through Dry January. In case you don’t know what Dry January is, it’s basically where you give up alcohol for one whole month.

But no seriously, Dry January is a really good idea if you’ve been a bit frivolous over the festive season. Even just cutting back the amount of alcohol you have during the week can have some great health benefits. We might be halfway through the month, but you can still get involved. If you do want to join in check out the Dry January website for more information and how to get involved. Now mocktails. Or non-alcoholic cocktails if you will. If you’re struggling with Dry January, or hey you’re doing great but have a friends birthday party this weekend, these mocktails are going to be a lifesaver. Hey, you don’t even have to be holding off on the old alcohol to enjoy these bad boys! 

5 Mocktails that will help you through Dry January No Alcohol Mojito Ingredients

Method
  1. Place the mint leaves and lime wedges in a glass and muddle
  2. Add the apple juice and elderflower cordial to the glass

No Alcohol Mimosa Ingredients
  • 50ml of Orange Juice
  • Sparkling Apple Juice
Method
  1. Measure out 50ml of orange juice and add to a champagne flute
  2. Top up with sparkling apple juice

The great thing about this recipe is you could essentially replace the orange juice with just about anything. Cranberry juice, sure why not. Hey, I might even try it with tropical fruit juice just so I can feel fancy. 

Rosemary Blueberry Smash Ingredients
  • A Handful of Blueberries
  • A Sprig of Rosemary
  • A Teaspoon of Honey

  2. Add the honey to the cocktail shaker and fill with ice
  3. Shake until cool to the touch

A Gin-Less G&T Ingredients
  • 3 Grapefruits
  • A Lemon
  • 3 Oranges
  • 8 Juniper Berries
  • 6 Cardamon Pods
  • A Sprig of Rosemary
  • Soda Water
Method
  1. Peel the grapefruit, lemon and orange and add the peel to an airtight jar.
  2. Juice the leftover fruit, and add to the airtight jar
  3. Add the juniper berries, cardamom pods and the rosemary to the jar.
  4. Close the jar and shake. This is then best left for a couple of days to infuse but can be used straight away.

  6. Top up with soda water
  7. You can then add garnishes like a wedge of lime or juniper berries if desired.

Ok so this one takes a little bit of work but it’s totally worth it trust me. If you’re having friends round try doubling the recipe to make a batch of gin-less G&T’s.
