Purpose - get people talking and sharing non-alcoholic cocktail ideas.

For each jug, prepare an A4 scoring sheet.

Provide small taster cups and ask participants to taste, score, and suggest a name for each mix.

Ask participants to score (marks out of 10) for taste and overall appeal.

Invite participants to make up a name for the cocktail - provide a prize for 'winner'.

Get people talking about their favourite non-alcoholic cocktails and share their recipes.

Disseminate public health information leaflet e.g. Alcohol Focus Scotland Alcohol and Pregnancy don't mix.
