Description

Lots of lovely tart lime, with cranberry juice and grenadine for extra colour and flavour. This disappears quickly!

This really works. A solid 30ml of lime juice neatly balances the cranberry juice, and when the fizz is added, becomes something special. Very easy to guzzle down, it’s hard to resist. Definitely recommended.

The combination of cranberry juice and grenadine also makes for a strong colour. Bring out the colour further with some berries on a cocktail stick too.

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.
