Go Sober For October - Mocktails!

I was recently contacted by Macmillan Cancer Support to play around with their mocktail recipes, hello! Playing bartender? Yes please!


Although there is a twist, they're current campaign is 'Go Sober For October' in which all of the money you would usually spend on boozing it up, you donate to the cause. It's always good to detox before Christmas and you're doing a good deed in the process so get involved yourselves, it's not too late. You can even just donate what you would have spent on a couple of nights out to help.

Proceeds from this event will go straight to Macmillan Cancer Support to help improve the lives of people affected by cancer.



The number of people with cancer is growing every day. Macmillan wants to reach and improve the lives of every one of those people. By taking part in Go Sober, you will help Macmillan in providing practical, medical and financial support and push for better cancer care.

 So in the post I got a lovely little package of bottles to test out containing Bundaberg Root Beer and Bundaberg Lemon Lime & Bitters. I also got some recipes with them, I changed them up a little to make the cocktail I wanted and they turned out really well. I would definitely be tempted to make them in general for a girls night in or for when you have people over that have to drive it feels a bit nicer to give something that hasn't 100% come out of a bottle or can.

Below are the ones I followed.
