Mark Sargeant & Tetley introduce smocktails
Tetley has teamed up with leading chef Mark Sargeant to develop a range of ‘smocktails’ set to super charge you and we've got our hands on the recipes...
Using a range of Super Fruits, Super Green Teas and the NEW Tetley Super Squash the smocktails not only hit the flavour mark but also contain Vitamin C, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin D*, to help maintain healthy bones and teeth, reduce tiredness and support your immune systems.
Mark Sargeant comments: “These smocktails are perfect for those looking for a little lift. Using elements from cocktail classics, we’ve developed smart alternatives to show you there is no need to compromise if you’re cutting out down on alcohol. The smocktails are fun, taste delicious and have added functional benefits to boot making them a little more super than your average mocktail! It’s been brilliant working with Tetley’s new Super tea and squash range! “
The Smocktails are available at Mark Sargeant’s Rocksalt in Folkstone, The Wife of Bath in Wye, Kent and The Duke William in Ickham, Kent. For those that prefer to stay in rather than go out, Mark has revealed his smocktail-making secrets in these easy to follow recipes. Go on, give it a go!
