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
Fresh pineapple, vanilla ice cream, ice cubes, pineapple juice and an egg all whizzed up in the blender.Tweeted @happyfoxgivinganswers [at] googlemail [dot] com
