Towards the end of 2019, when Geth and I were doing a lot of travelling in order to attend gigs in other cities, I developed a taste for mocktails. The fact that I have been unable to continue sampling them is probably one of the pandemic’s ‘silver linings’, as while extremely delicious they are not particularly diet-friendly and I don’t need any extra temptations in that area right now!
The first one I tried was a Virgin Apple Mojito at Destination 1850, which at the time was a brand-new venue located within the concourse of Newcastle Central train station. Like everywhere else, it’s currently closed due to the lockdown, but it was a very nice stop-off when travelling by train, so I hope it’s able to reopen when things are back to normal!
This drink tasted absolutely divine – I have a very sweet tooth and love sugary-tasting drinks as a treat – and so it was not the first mocktail of that particular weekend! More to follow next time.
