Mocktails great for having with friends – easy ingredients and ready to go.
Espresso Martini Mocktail
This has potential – as long as you get the coffee/syrup balance correct.
Hot mulled cider
This worked beautifully. Warm, soothing but spicy cider. Perfect for a blustery winter...
I am addicted to this cordial. Mixed with soda water, it’s the perfect pre-dinner...
Peppermint Milk Shot
Equal parts milk and ice cream, with a dash of peppermint essence. And made Christmassy with some crumbled candy canes on top of whipped cream.
There seem to be two main variations on mint julep mocktails: the basic one, really focusing on the mint, with a little lemon and sugar; and one that tries to be closer to the adult cocktail, using ginger ale and lemon to mimic the bourbon of the original adult drink. This is the basic one.
Berry mint punch
Includes my perennial favourite raspberry cranberry juice – always in my fridge.
Mmmm – raspberry cranberry juice and fresh berries..
A tasty juice and ginger fizz
Virgin sunrise plus pineapple juice
The simple classic – orange juice and grenadine
Also known as the Lime Rickey, a simple fizzy drink of soda water, lime and grenadine
