Booze Free January with Luscombe Drinks (Competition)

Competition

Did you overindulge on booze in December?

Too much mulled wine and cocktails at endless rounds of parties?
Too much bubbly for Christmas breakfast?
Too much port with the cheese board?
Too much beer, sherry, whisky or wine…?

Here at Kavey Eats & Pete Drinks, we reckon starting the new year with an alcohol-free week or two might be in order.

And if we’re going to cut out alcohol, why not also cut out concentrates, preservatives, artificial colourings and flavourings, flavour enhancers, acidity regulators, artificial sweeteners … not to mention residues from artificial pesticides?

Based at Domesday Farm in Devon, Luscombe don’t use any of the above in their range of drinks which are made with fresh raw ingredients. Their range is organic (with the exception of the elderflower bubbly, which is made from fresh wild flowers picked in May and June) and it’s also free of GMOs and animal by-products.

They kindly sent us a box to help us with our booze-free start to the year.

We haven’t worked our way through the whole range yet but so far, Kavey particularly loves the elderflower bubbly and Pete is very enthusiastic about the organic apple juice.

An absolute fave is a drink called 'Sorrell'. It's very popular in the Caribbean and is so refreshing. It's made from boiled 'sorrell' leaves. Once cooled you add brown sugar to sweeten and spices to give it a kick. Add some crushed ice, et voila… a delicious non-alcoholic drink! Dark rum is optional however :p. Oooh, I could do with a glass now…:D

My favorite non-alcoholic drink is called BOH Iced Green Tea with Lime. I first tried it when I went to the BOH plantation in Malaysia, and now I buy it in bulk on their website and get it shipped over to the UK – I'm addicted!It has the taste and health benefits of green tea, but with a wicked lime tang, although is sweet enough to not get heartburn afterwards! lol.It comes in packs that contain 30 sachets of the powder which you mix with cold water. I love the stuff :).mike@2wilsonclose.co.uk

I love pure orange juice with a splash of ginger beer – don't knock it till you've tried it. Orange and ginger go together fabulously – I also like dipping ginger biscuits in orange juice – yummy!bevmetallica@gmail.com

My favourite non alcoholic drink is a loose leaf tea I discovered a few years ago called “Chilli, Chilli, Bang Bang” which is made from Rooibos, Red chillis, thistles, ginger and pepper. It may not have caffeine in but I'm awake and energised in minutes!stodeljuls@gmail.com

Always ginger beer, but I am sure the non p.c. home-made variety of my childhood would explain why the village children slept soundly after the annual fete… arabellabazley at gmail dot com

I adore Luscombe apple juice! It's delicious and it's produced locally to me. The crisp fresh taste always takes me back to summer picnics at National Trust properties with my children. Just the thing for a grey January day.kpdchudleigh@tiscali.co.uk

My favourite non-alcoholic drink is a diet-coke float – although not sure if you class it as a drink as such as it has ice cream! If not I'd go for Irn Bru!

Since I’m sugary-drink-free generally, I’m pretty much stuck with diet coke and water (with occasional twist of lime if I feel like splashing out). However, a case of tasties like this would definitely help husband’s Three Booze Free Days a Week Campaign (and ease my suffering at same)…
