We’re huge fans of Ricola and always have been, it was the only sweet range, my health-conscious parents would only allow my brother to eat, growing up!
For those not aware (where have you been people?) Ricola are fine herb specialists with naturally cultivated Swiss mountain herbs, famous for their unique, mouthwatering flavours. And what’s more, they’re sugar free so are good for you too!
We are utterly OBSESSED with Ricola’s sugar-free herbal sweets and while they’re perfect as a little sweet treat, they really are much more than just a handy handbag snack and can be used to create refreshing and heart-warming drinks.
I know, cool huh!
From Delicious Elderflower being added to summer spritzers to The Original popped in hot water to create a soothing winter tonic – there are endless options to your drinks list with these flavoursome lovelies!
The Ricola flavours above include Scrumptious OrangeMint, Refreshing LemonMint, Tasty Cranberry, Delicious Elderflower, Fresh Mountain Mint, Luxurious liquorice and The Original.
For my own unique recipe I’ve opted for Fresh Mountain Mint, the perfect accompaniment to watermelon, mine and my kids’ favourite fruit.
Using fresh mint and the dissolvable Ricola sweets adds extra flavour and punch to this mocktail and here is my Watermelon & Fresh Mountain Mint Mocktail with recipe for you to recreate yourself!
- 1 lb seedless watermelon chunks
- 353ml or 1 1/2 cups still or sparkling water
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 Ricola Fresh Mountain Mint sweets
- A few fresh mint leaves
- In a blender, puree the watermelon and water; strain if desired.
- Dissolve the Ricola sweet into the liquid
- Stir in the mint leaves and serve over ice with a straw (omit ice for your kids’ drinks).
This is a commissioned collaboration with Ricola.
