100 Words, 100 Days: Day 85. On Caffeine.

You know you’re a caffeine junkie when:

a) You’ve gone to the bother of making the nicest cup of coffee you can, given your circumstances, and you don’t even remember drinking it.

b) Being jittery is your default setting.

c) You can tell your Java from your Colombian.

d) You drain a pot of coffee quicker than a toilet can flush.

e) Your concern for your kidneys is at odds with your serenity.

f) Your response to a customer query is WHAT NOW? CAN’T YOU SEE I’M STRESSED OUT?

g) Going cold turkey fills you with a sense of dread.

Being a non-drinker, I’m always on the lookout for new and refreshing ways to enjoy an alcohol free life. I find there’s only so much Coke and 7up a man can drink before becoming bloated. I found this recipe on a UK website called goodtoknow.co.uk. It’s called a Mocktail, and this is what you need to make it:

  • Handful of cherries
  • Handful of raspberries
  • Sparkling natural orange drink, like Club Orange, Fanta or Orangina.

The way you go about making it is quite simple:

  1. Crush a handful of cherries with a fork or in a hand blender.
  2. Crush a handful of raspberries.
  3. Strain through a fine sieve and discard the pips.
  4. Add chilled sparkling natural orange drink.

Easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy!
