Clare Pooley loves WoW Mocktails!

As the summer has now arrived and the hot weather too, I couldn’t think of anything better than some delicious mocktails!

Mocktails are non-alcoholic cocktails, and often taste even better! 

Clare Pooley loved Web of the Week’s Mocktails 

Clare Pooley is a highly acclaimed author speaker and blogger.  She wrote “The Sober Diaries”, the story of the year she quit drinking, that is often described as ‘Bridget Jones Dries Out.’  It is known to be the “brave and brilliantly funny memoir that is changing lives.”

You should be able to buy the “The Sober Diaries” at your local bookseller or Waterstones but you can also get it from Amazon by click on the image below.

Clare’s first novel, “The Authenticity Project”, has just been published – in 29 languages – with great reviews!

‘This is the feel-good story, full of hope, that we all need to read right now.’ Woman & Home, Book of the Month

‘A joyous, funny read that leaves you all warm inside’ Beth Morrey, author of Saving Missy

  1. Blueberry Bash was delicious! I will share my new summer Mocktail, Watermelon-Cucumber-Mint Cooler:
    Purée and strain both watermelon and English cucumber. Combine the strained juices. Add lime juice, simple syrup to taste, and muddle in some fresh mint. Serve over crushed ice with wedge of lime and mint sprig.
