Booze Free January with Luscombe Drinks (Competition)

Did you overindulge on booze in December?

Too much mulled wine and cocktails at endless rounds of parties?
Too much bubbly for Christmas breakfast?
Too much port with the cheese board?
Too much beer, sherry, whisky or wine…?

Here at Kavey Eats & Pete Drinks, we reckon starting the new year with an alcohol-free week or two might be in order.

And if we’re going to cut out alcohol, why not also cut out concentrates, preservatives, artificial colourings and flavourings, flavour enhancers, acidity regulators, artificial sweeteners … not to mention residues from artificial pesticides?

Based at Domesday Farm in Devon, Luscombe don’t use any of the above in their range of drinks which are made with fresh raw ingredients. Their range is organic (with the exception of the elderflower bubbly, which is made from fresh wild flowers picked in May and June) and it’s also free of GMOs and animal by-products.

They kindly sent us a box to help us with our booze-free start to the year.

We haven’t worked our way through the whole range yet but so far, Kavey particularly loves the elderflower bubbly and Pete is very enthusiastic about the organic apple juice.

    My favourite non-alcoholic drink is ginger beer. I love it, especially when it is really fiery!

    Happy New Year Kavey. Thanks for doing another fantastic competition

  2. Louise

    Since getting pregnant, I've been trying lots of different soft drinks where normally wine would prevail 😉

    Top favourite is definitely ginger beer, which is fab with gin for those that can! I do love Luscombes scilian Lemonade too though.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win xx

    I adore carrot, apple, celery and Ginger juice made in our juicer. It's so damned healthy it feels like you'll live forever after necking a pint of it!!

    An absolute fave is a drink called 'Sorrell'. It's very popular in the Caribbean and is so refreshing. It's made from boiled 'sorrell' leaves. Once cooled you add brown sugar to sweeten and spices to give it a kick. Add some crushed ice, et voila… a delicious non-alcoholic drink! Dark rum is optional however :p. Oooh, I could do with a glass now…:D

    Fresh pineapple, vanilla ice cream, ice cubes, pineapple juice and an egg all whizzed up in the blender.

    Green Cream Soda, I have only seen this sold in the Far East (I spent time in Brunei as a child) I think its made by Fanta, but is er green bright green and is the best cream soda ever. I have been known to sneak cans back in my luggage…..

  16. Jo

    Happy New Year and thanks for a fab opportunity.

    Elderflower cordial mixed with freshly squeezed orange, halved strawberries and orange wedges, poured over crushed ice. I so want one right this minute.

    My favorite non-alcoholic drink is called BOH Iced Green Tea with Lime. I first tried it when I went to the BOH plantation in Malaysia, and now I buy it in bulk on their website and get it shipped over to the UK – I'm addicted!

    It has the taste and health benefits of green tea, but with a wicked lime tang, although is sweet enough to not get heartburn afterwards! lol.

    It comes in packs that contain 30 sachets of the powder which you mix with cold water. I love the stuff :).

    I love pure orange juice with a splash of ginger beer – don't knock it till you've tried it. Orange and ginger go together fabulously – I also like dipping ginger biscuits in orange juice – yummy!

  19. scrumpy

    I simply adore blackcurrant cordial by the bucketful! Am also tweeting at scrumpy11 on twitter.

  20. Juls

    My favourite non alcoholic drink is a loose leaf tea I discovered a few years ago called “Chilli, Chilli, Bang Bang” which is made from Rooibos, Red chillis, thistles, ginger and pepper. It may not have caffeine in but I'm awake and energised in minutes!

  25. S Lloyd

    No, I did not overindulge on booze in Decemer, and feel in line with the aforementioned resolutions. I love Ginger juice

  26. Arabella

    Always ginger beer, but I am sure the non p.c. home-made variety of my childhood would explain why the village children slept soundly after the annual fete… arabellabazley at gmail dot com

  27. Daisymaebee

    I love passion fruit juice it's great for waking up those taste buds,plus my other half hates it so all the more for me heeheexxx

    I love apple juice straight out of the fridge …


  32. pepicola

    I just love Pepsi Max. I can't get enough of it but try to limit to a can a day – bit worried about all that caffeine!

  33. splatky

    Ooops not sure where my comment went, I'll try again!

    My fav is usually appletiser, but strangely yesterday I tried Luscombe Pear with Madagasgan Vanilla & it tastes amazing 🙂

    Smoothie, made from fresh fruit juice and yoghurt, mmmm

  35. kpdchudleigh

    I adore Luscombe apple juice! It's delicious and it's produced locally to me. The crisp fresh taste always takes me back to summer picnics at National Trust properties with my children. Just the thing for a grey January day.

    I love drinking fresh young cocunut and then scooping out the lovely jelly – yum – @dini152

  37. I heart cupcakes

    My favourite non-alcoholic drink is a diet-coke float – although not sure if you class it as a drink as such as it has ice cream! If not I'd go for Irn Bru!

  38. katrinao

    Soda water and lime, I still drink this on a night out. Looks like a cocktail without the headache the next day 😉
