Bedazzled Ice Blocks

Ice blocks with mint, lemon and pomegranate in them

If you aren’t so keen on having herbs and lemon rinds floating around your drink. Consider adding it to your ice cube tray.

You can level up the gorgeousness of your drink with these bedazzled ice blocks.

If I were in my 20’s you can be sure this Pomegranate Mocktail would have double tots of Vodka or Gin. Fast forward nearly 30 years and you get the ‘sensible’ version. 

Sensible because alcohol and I are no longer friends, it’s a shortcut to a headache and menopausal hot flush.

But, alcohol-free doesn’t need to mean boring. Besides, you can always add a little intoxication of your choice, just be sure to NOT take photos. Just kidding, take photos – the internet wouldn’t be the same without them!

Jokes aside, if you are following a ‘healthy’ eating plan, we tend to focus on water, smoothies or juices.

But then you have to go to dinner at a friends and suddenly your options seem a little limited and out of place… “No thanks, I brought my spinach juice. You go ahead and enjoy your Pina Colada.” … Doesn’t seem right does it?

Mocktails are superstars for situations like this. This Pomegranate Mocktail will not only add a visual kapow to the table but it’s also loaded with awesome nutrient ingredients.

Pomegranate Juice

Pomegranates are known for their high levels of nutrition, but what is most notable is their apparent ability to help manage inflammation and inflammatory diseases. Studies have been so positive when using rodent models that further and more intensive research for humans seems to be on the cards.

Raw Honey

Honey is a known natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent. As a natural sweetener, it adds flavour and depth to the pomegranate.

Lemon Juice & Rind

The rind of the lemon holds the essential oils, added with a little lemon juice and you have a  tart Vitamin C pop to balance the sweetness of the honey.


Mint is a fragrant herb that adds freshness and a cooling quality to the drink. Mint is great for improving digestion and helping settle your tummy.

Top all of that off with your favourite sparkly/soda water and you have yourself a mocktail, nix the headache and hot flush.

So go ahead and enjoy!

Let’s make it!
