The heat is on and if you’re firing up the BBQ for a party this summer, why not try making your tipple a little healthier than usual.

Here are our 5 signature cocktails to Get More Vitamins into your drinks.

Lemon & Lime Cooler

Looking for a low alcohol tipple you can keep on drinking (within reason!)? We’ve used our Multivitamin Lemon & Lime to make this simple, refreshing cooler. This works just as well without the vodka so for non-drinkers, make it a mocktail.

Ingredients – makes 2 drinks

  • 500ml Get More Vits Lemon & Lime
  • 50ml Vodka
  • 2 Limes
  • 2 Large handfuls fresh mint

Method

  1. Use a tall glass and add a handful of fresh mint leaves plus the juice of 1 whole lime to each glass.
  2. Use a muddler (if you’re a cocktail pro) or the end of a rolling pin to crush the mint and lime together.
  3. Add a generous helping of ice.
  4. Pour in 25 ml vodka for each drink and top with Get More Vits Lemon & Lime, stir and enjoy!

Blueberries contain lots of Vitamin A

Blueberry & Blackberry Bramble

Vitamin A is vital for healthy skin and vision, although let’s be honest it won’t stop youseeing double after one too many, so stick to your limits! We’ve added loads of fresh berries to this for even more skin loving goodness – ‘anthocyanins’ gives berries their purple colour and help to protect against skin damage.

Ingredients – makes 2 drinks

Method

  1. Crush the ice by wrapping a few handfuls in a clean tea towel – then give them a good bash with a rolling pin.
  2. Add to large gin glasses and pour in 25 ml gin per person.
  3. Use a blender to combine fresh blueberries and blackberries and a splash of water into a smooth puree.
  4. If you have a small strainer, use it to strain the puree into the gin glasses. If not, it’s equally as good without straining, as long as you don’t mind a few bits of berry!
  5. Squeeze in the juice of half a fresh lemon and top with Get More Vits Blackcurrant & Blueberry.
  6. Garnish with a sprinkle of blueberries or blackberries.

Mango & Passionfruit Mojito

This mojito is a thirst quenching take on a classic, and packed full of the sunshine, Vitamin D will quite literally bring the flavour of the Caribbean to your own back garden. We’ve added fresh mango for an extra boost of vitamin C and by blending the whole fruit you’re getting a little fibre for healthy digestion too!

Ingredients – makes 2 drinks

Method

  1. Crush ice by wrapping a few handfuls in a tea towel – then give them a good bash with a rolling pin.
  2. Use tall glasses, adding a handful of chopped mint and the juice of a whole lime to each, then top with the crushed ice.
  3. Peel and chop the mango then add to a blender with a little water and whizz up to form a puree.
  4. Pour the puree over the ice along with 25 ml rum per person and top with Get More Vits Mango & Passionfruit.
  5. Give the mix a good stir, then sit back and enjoy.

Apple & Raspberry Cosmo

If you’re in for a night of it start things off with our healthy take on the classic Cosmopolitan. It’s loaded with B vitamins that are quickly depleted when we drink alcohol, leaving you low in energy and even feeling down. So, sip happy with our Apple & Raspberry Cosmo, and throw in a handful of fresh raspberries for added antioxidant power. This is best made using a cocktail shaker but if you don’t have one, a large blender cup or a tall Tupperware with a lid will work too.

Ingredients – makes 2 drinks

  • 250ml (half a bottle) Get More Vits Apple & Raspberry
  • 50ml Vodka
  • 50ml Cointreau
  • Large handful fresh raspberries
  • Orange peel or more raspberries to garnish

Method

  1. Add raspberries to a blender with half a bottle of Get More Vits Apple & Raspberry.
  2. Use a cocktail shaker and combine the raspberry blend with Vodka and Cointreau.
  3. Add a large handful of ice to the shaker then carefully tip one way and the other to cool the mixture – no need for a vigorous shake!
  4. Strain the mix into martini glasses.
  5. If you’re feeling fancy, use a peeler or small knife to garnish with a twist of orange peel or skewer a few raspberries on to a cocktail stick for extra berry goodness.

A Twist on a Spritz!

Everyone loves an Aperol spritz these days, so why not make yours a nutritious version? More nutrients = less guilt.
