Hi your Mocktails sound delicious but I have a worry with the sugar syrup.I am trying to lose weight by following a healthy eating plan.I am getting my first delivery today and I am looking forward to how you do it.

Hi Anne,

If you don’t want to use sugar syrup that’s fine too! Don’t add it, and see how it tastes. If you’d then like it a bit sweeter, add a tiny bit of honey to some hot water, stir it and then add that in (once cooled).
