Every January people across the region vow to shed weight and improve their health – often at the expense of their social life.

Now, mixologists at Tiger Hornsby, Quayside, Newcastle, have created a range of ‘detox’ cocktails, which not only contain fewer calories than traditional tipples but are also packed with health boosting ingredients.

The 12 new cocktails contain high nutrient fruits, such as red grapes, watermelon and pink grapefruit, stevia – a natural, calorie-free sweetener – potassium and mineral rich coconut water and blueberries and acai berries, which are both high in antioxidants.

Many of the new detox drinks, such as Kale Mary and Acai Berry Cosmopolitan, are variations on traditional cocktails.

Based on a Bloody Mary, the vitamin and mineral-rich Kale Mary replaces tomato juice with the juice of eight different vegetables, while the Cosmopolitan replaces traditional cranberry juice with that of acai berries, which are believed to boost energy levels.

Alternatively, the Bounty Martini offers the sweetness of chocolate and coconut but with stevia syrup, instead of sugar, and coconut water for potassium, bio-active enzymes and B-complex vitamins.

The Tiger Hornsby team has also used superfoods as the inspiration for a new range of non-alcoholic cocktails – or mocktails – for drivers and those taking up the Dry January challenge of abstaining from alcohol for a month.

The mocktails include fruit-filled Walk in the Tropics, containing banana, strawberry, pineapple, orange and lime, with coconut milk and grenadine, and Watermelon Baller; fresh watermelon shaken with strawberry, mint, lime and apple juice.

“It can be hard enough to stick to a diet or healthy eating regime at the best of times,” said Tiger Hornsby’s owner Rachael Frame, “but nights out can be a minefield as so many drinks are laden with sugar and calories.

“Our detox cocktails, which are priced between £6 and £8, offer a great alternative to high calorie drinks such as red wine and lager – and they taste fabulous, while the £4 mocktails are literally crammed with goodness.”

Tiger Hornsby is open on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5pm to 2am, on Fridays and Saturdays, from 3pm to 3am and on Sundays from 12pm to 12am and admission is free.
