Years of experience have taught me that wine and sunshine do not mix. In fact I’ve come to realise that if any alcohol is consumed whilst I am in direct sunlight, one or all of the following happens: 1. I lose all sense of sun-safety and get burnt, my nose and lips, almost falling off my face, subsequently have to be glued back into position with lathers of after sun and vaseline. 2. I become delirious and pass out. 3. I vomit.
Because I wanted to enjoy the weekend’s heat wave (that will likely end abruptly in rolls of thunder and torrential rain next week) and due to me having to hide in a dark, cold room if I’m hungover, my friend concocted the above delightful mocktail*.
A tub of Total 0% Greek Yoghurt, a handful of raspberries, handful of strawberries and a load of ice. Throw it all into a blender, whizz until smooth and serve in push glasses that make it almost impossible to move without spilling.
If you manage to get any in your mouth before it slips over the side of the glass and plops onto the floor, you’ll like it :-). Unless you’re lactose intolerant. Or allergic to berries. In that case, this recipe may not be for you.
*N.B I’m not being an idiot with spelling, it’s a play on words. ‘Mock’ tail. Get it?
