Three Day Week-end Treats :)

botoniqueSomething to drink and something to watch on a Bank Holiday Monday!  Three Day Week-end Treats 🙂  The drink is new and I need to thank Hilary Marsh at Genius Drinks Limited for not 1 or 2 bottles to sample but 3!!  It is called Botonique and is described as ‘the botanical soft drink for wine lovers’ and you can find out more about it here:

How to serve

  • Well chilled or over ice
  • In a Champagne flute for maximum bubbles
  • In a wine glass for less bubbles
  • Give it a stir if you don’t want the bubbles

When to serve

Anytime you fancy a “proper” drink, including:

  • Pre-dinner aperitif
  • To accompany Asian or Oriental cuisine, seafood, fish, sushi, anti-pasta, goats cheese and a range of other foods
  • Sorbet drink to refresh the palate

What is it?

Most soft drinks are far too sweet – until Botonique.  Botonique is a sparkling blend of botanical extracts and nutrients, crisp & refreshing, deliciously dry.

Botonique is packed with Prelixir® nutrients – relevant vitamins, minerals and amino acids which are the building blocks of life.  You can learn more at

As the name suggests, Botonique is rich in botanical extracts, which provide the natural flavours as well as well as health benefits. We only name two of them – Milk Thistle Seed and Panax Ginseng – keeping the rest as our trade secret. But the secrecy doesn’t make them any less beneficial!


Botonique can be transformed into a variety of enticing drinks with the addition of cordials such as elderflower, juices such as grapefruit, or garnishes such as:

  • Strawberry & black pepper
  • Lemon & ginger
  • Cucumber, lime & mint
  • Pineapple & sage

Coconut water is also good, creating a softer, fatter mouth feel – and making your coconut water much more healthy & delicious!

So with alcohol free filled glass in hand you can now watch this that aired on BBC One last Thursday and is available on iPlayer for 29 days:

The Truth About Alcohol

So how did we enjoy our Botonique?  Chilled with a dash of Grenadine so it looked like a sparkling rose 🙂  Yum!
