Five drinks for drivers

If you’ve drawn the short straw and are playing chauffeur for the evening, you’ll probably want something a bit more interesting to sup than a glass of OJ. These juicy numbers will do the trick...

Gran Stead’s Ginger Co Lemonade with Zing

A super-tangy, still lemonade with an added kick of ginger. Loaded with Sicilian lemon juice, it’ll certainly give your mouth a gentle pucker.

£2.25, 750ml,

Shloer Celebration White Bubbly

Comes in a classic champagne-style bottle, so you can still pop your cork.

Light, fizzy and sweet, it makes a great stand in for your favoured fizz if you want to share bottle with the kids.

£2.99, 750ml, major supermarkets

Soft Brew Lime and Elderflower 

Brewed like beer, looks like beer, but tastes a tad sweeter. Still packing a malty, hoppy flavour, you could really be fooled that this contains booze, but thankfully it’s totally alcohol free.

£1.20, 275ml, Sainsbury’s  

 Cawston Press Rhubarb 

Tastes quintessentially British. Pressed rhubarb and apple juice are blended with sparkling water to make a really thirst-quenching drink. Add a sprig of rhubarb and a wedge of lemon for a tangy mocktail.

£4.99, six 330ml cans, Waitrose and Booths


A really different offering for the soft-drinks world. Natural cucumber and spring water make a refreshing, palate-cleansing drink. Try it instead of a glass of wine with a light meal, or add a slice of lime for a G&T alternative.

£2.39, 750ml, Tesco, Ocado, Booths and independents
