Today is Winter Solstice eve. In my favourite UK city, where I used to live, this is known as ‘Burning the Clocks’ (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burning_of_the_Clocks) and is a good opportunity to celebrate and release things from the past year. As part of this celebration I have written a good-bye letter to alcohol which will be burned on our fire and I will toast my new found sobriety with this tasty mocktail 🙂

30ml or 1fl oz fresh lime juice
30ml or 1fl oz fresh lemon juice
30ml or 1 fl oz fresh orange juice
Grenadine, to taste
Maraschino cherry, for decoration

Mix all the ingredients together in a cocktail shaker already packed with ice and then strain into a glass. Add a cherry for a final flourish. Cheers! Day 90

PS I will share the good-bye letter around New Year time.
