Description

A defacto rum-and-coke from Lyre’s.
I’ve never actually been a rum-and-coke person, so this made me feel like I was at uni having a drink with the engineering guys, instead of my native IT guys (who were more into wine and cheese nights).

It’s easy to make, which is half the battle when you’re looking for a quick mocktail.
I did add the slice of lime, to make it more cocktail-y, but it disappeared in the night. It should look like https://lyres.com.au/recipes/non-alcoholic-cuba-libre-mocktail-recipe. 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 60mL Lyre’s Dark Cane Spirit
  • 15mL lime juice
  • 90mL coca-cola

Instructions

  • Add dark cane spirit, lime juice and coca-cola to a highball glass.
  • Fill with ice.
  • Garnish with slice of lime.

  • Method: muddle, shake

Description

This was born of a need to use up the ageing strawberries in the fridge, plus whatever was growing in the garden.  Found a recipe at https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/strawberry-basil-mocktail/ and adapted it in the laziest possible manner.

Delightfully refreshing, the lemon, sugar, strawberry and basil all work together well, especially when well-chilled after shaking.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 strawberries
  • handful of basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • soda water
  • ice cubes

Instructions

  • Muddle the strawberries, basil, and sugar at the bottom of your shaker.
  • Add lemon juice and ice and shake until chilled.
  • Half-fill glasses with ice
  • Strain into glass
  • Garnish with a slice of strawberry and basil leaf

This was nice. Sweet, gently tart, fizzy.  
I had ordered it from https://www.woodlane.com.au/products  but it looks like they rebuilt their website and you have to find a local stockist. Somehow.  
It’s handy to have around, but it wasn’t really exciting. Just a nice, gentle, Aussie native mocktail. 


Ingredients

  • A bottle of Wood Lane Pomegranate & Davidson Plum
  • Cinnamon stick to garnish

Instructions

Pour over ice and garnish

Drinks like this make you remember:

– How important it is to muddle.

The flavour lasts right until the end when you muddle. So you start with a cool refreshing fizz, and end with a delicious sweetness. Yum.

Description

This is so addictive. Pink grapefruit cordial mixed with soda water, it’s the perfect pre-dinner drink. Just get some.

Woolworths, Coles and specialty stores all now have fantastic ranges of fruit cordials these days. I started taking cordials seriously after discovering a ginger and rhubarb cordial at an exotic deli in Crows Nest and then discovered the pleasures of elderflower and pomegranate cordial from Woolies. Discovering this pink grapefruit flavour was a happy day, as I’ve always loved pink grapefruit, since having a tree in the backyard growing up. Heavenly!


Ingredients

  • Bickfords pink grapefruit cordial
  • Soda water
  • Garnish with slice of pink grapefruit and sugar-rimmed glass

Instructions

  • Decorate the glass by pressing the rim of the glass into your grapefruit to wet it (or a lemon, or water, if you don’t have one)
  • Then press the rim into a plate of sugar, to make pretty
  • Fill glass halfway with ice cubes
  • Prepare your soda water – either bottled, or fizz it in a sodastream
  • Add cordial and soda water to taste – roughly 1 part cordial to 4 parts water
  • Garnish with a slice of grapefruit.

Ooh yeah. A little fussy, but great great flavour. There is a lot of honey in this one, but blends nicely with the lemon and blackberries. Worth it.

I almost followed the instructions, muddled everything together in a steel bowl, so that I had more room, instead of the shaker.
In hindsight, using a shaker would have worked better, getting all of the flavours together.
But it looked pretty.
