Mandarin Agua Fresca

  • Author: chris
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x
  • Category: beverage, mocktail
  • Method: blend
  • Cuisine: Australian

Description

This one came from a glut of mandarins at home – we bought a bag two weeks in a row and were a little slow in eating them, ending up with a surplus that had to be used quickly.
Using the basic agua fresca approach detailed at https://www.mistressofmocktails.com/agua-fresca/, the ingredients were simply  mandarins, water, agave syrup, lime – and I try to have limes around whenever I can.

Too nice to have alone, this is a recipe for 2.


Ingredients

Scale
  • Reserve 2 mandarin segments as a garnish
  • 4 medium mandarins – enough to make 2 cupfuls
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tspn agave syrup
  • 1 lime, juiced

Instructions

  1. Blend the fruit, water and sweetener
  2. Sieve, if it looks too pulpy (I didn’t)
  3. Test for sweetness first and adjust if necessary
  4. Server over ice.

Here are the starting ingredients:

I used the glass I was serving in, as the measure for how many mandarins were required.

  • 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.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 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

 


Mocktails in the tiny are always romantic 🙂

Drinks like this make you remember:
– How good lime is
– 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.

  • 2 mint leaves
  • 2 lime wedges
  • Dash agave syrup
  • 60 ml pomegranate juice
  • 120 ml lemonade

  • Muddle the mint leaves, syrup and lime in the bottom of a glass.
  • Fill the glass almost to the top with ice
  • Add the juice and lemonade and stir.

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.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 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.

Description

A thick, refreshing, flavoursome, creamy mocktail. Perfect for summer by the pool.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 120ml coconut cream
  • 3 slices pineapple
  • a dash of agave syrup
  • Half cup of ice
  • shredded coconut to garnish

Instructions

  • Throw the coconut cream, pineapple, syrup and ice into a gutsy blender and blend until smooth
  • Pour into glass and garnish with shredded coconut

There are so many variations on this recipe, it was a toss of the coin as to which one to start from. Most used coconut milk and pineapple juice for a light effect, but I think the ice has the same effect, and cools it down even further.

The shredded coconut garnish was a little distracting, when drinking from the glass, but the straw would have fixed that. Mind you, Millie said the garnish was the best part, so it’s definitely got to stay, even if it’s just for the looks.
