Description

Oh, this was a bit awesome. The only problem was that it was too small – I wanted another one straight away. The official recipe is at https://lyres.com.au/recipes/non-alcoholic-amaretto-sour-mocktail.   As usual I substituted sugar syrup for agave syrup, as I always have agave syrup in the cupboard.  And used an egg white, which meant I had an egg yolk loitering in the fridge, after I forgot to make lemon curd with the leftovers.

This is truly a pleasure to drink. Picture yourself in a dusky bar, sipping elegantly from a delicious pre-dinner drink.  The almond taste from the amaretti makes it just that bit unusual.

Description

The traditional Negroni is an Italian cocktail made of one part gin, one part vermouth rosso and one part campari, garnished with orange peel. Traditionally stirred, not shaken, and built over ice.

The Lyre’s Rosa Negroni varies the proportions to favour the piquant orange flavour. And true-to-form, is stirred, not shaken.  Lyre’s products are non-alcoholic alternatives to traditional spirits.

Without easy access to my measuring tool, I used the slightly larger lid of my cocktail shaker, pretending it was 15ml.  It was larger. Which meant I ended up with a nice large drink, and depleted supplies. Shucks.

Worth it. Lovely, refreshing, exotic.

  • 45mL Lyre’s Italian Spritz

  • 30mL Lyre’s Aperitif Rosso

  • Top with ice.

  • Category: beverage, mocktail
  • Method: muddle, shake
  • Cuisine: Australian

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

Description

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

Description

These are the official ingredients from Seedlip at https://seedlipdrinks.com/uk/cocktails/espresso-martino. However I have a habit of substituting agave syrup for sugar syrup in my mocktails – it has a longer shelf life and I don’t have to plan ahead as much.

It did look nice, but somehow I missed the mark. Seedlip is gorgeous – I adore it with tonic water – but I think the exact combination of cold brew and agave need to be well-rehearsed.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 50ml Seedlip Spice
  • 50ml Cold Brew Concentrate
  • 15ml Sugar Syrup
  • Coffee bean to garnish

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker, and shake.
  • Pour slowly into glass, and the components will separate.
  • Garnish with a coffee bean.

Description

This recipe was based on one at http://pallensmith.com/recipes/recipe/hot-mulled-cider/ – I basically halved the recipe and Australianised it. Paul has a fantastic range of recipes on his site, with YouTube videos so you can watch him make it.

It really was hard to just have one of these. A lot better than expected – this is a great recipe.

  • 1 litre apple juice
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 teaspoon cloves
  • 2 teaspoons allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • orange slices to garnish

Instructions

  • Simply mix all the ingredients (except the garnish) in a saucepan
  • Stir over medium heat until it begins to boil
  • Reduce the heat and let it simmer about 15 minutes.
  • Garnish with orange slices to serve

Luckily Woolies has the juices in 1 litre boxes.

Make sure it doesn’t boil too long or you’ll lose the clarity. Reduce heat and simmer.
