For the wondering/wandering Alice – an unusual bright pink cream and juice mocktail.
Keywords: alice mocktail, cream, juice, grenadine
Before making this, I had high hopes of a light, juicy mocktail, with a creamy finish. Based on the ingredients, it had potential.
It got scary quite quickly. The combination of grenadine and cream made for an unnatural bright pink combination. I cross-referenced a few similar drinks, but they all had the same proportions of cream and grenadine that would caused this colour.
After stirring, it still didn’t look all that attractive. Here’s the plain version, before decoration. It’s pink. That’s really all you can say. Pink.
I had added a new glass swizzle stick, to keep it cold. But to counteract the pink drink, it really needed the pink straw. And a slice of pink grapefruit (even though there’s no grapefruit in the recipe).
It’s rare that I find a mocktail I’ll never make again. If you don’t mind your kids having an excess of food colouring from the grenadine, and sugar from the cream, then you might like it.
Alas, back to the kitchen to make something nice.
