Description

The traditional kamikaze mocktail is orange juice, lime juice and a dash of bitters.
It would be much better served in a shot glass, given the concentration of flavours.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 60ml orange juice
  • 60ml lime juice
  • 3 dashes angostura bitters
  • ice to shake
  • lime spiral to garnish

Instructions

  • Mix the ice, juice and bitters in a cocktail shaker.
  • Strain and pour into a martini glass or similar.
  • Garnish with a twist of lime.

Keywords: kamikazi mocktail, orange lime and bitters

These are the listed ingredients in the recipe…

However this is what I actually used – a little lazy and artificial.

It was a lovely colour, due to the three dashes of bitters and orange juice.

However I wasn’t altogether happy with the initial result. I think it was the fact that I cheated and didn’t use fresh lime juice. There was something unexpected about the taste. It wasn’t as sweet as expected.

I adjusted the recipe and doubled the orange juice, which did seem to make the difference. It was more of a mocktail, in that it was an elegant drink that you’d enjoy slowly, still with a strong tartness from the lime. But it would have been even better with fresh lime juice.

Lime is the thing that stops people from guzzling drinks. It makes you slow down and savour the flavour. And something to take advantage of when they’re on sale at the fruit shop.

If you’re making this mocktail, definitely use fresh lime juice, and good quality orange juice.

To create the lime twist, I used scissors to cut some of the rind from the lime I had previously used. Scraped off the white pith. Twisted it tightly around a skewer. That gives it enough inherent twist that it will sit on the edge of the glass.

Enjoy!

Description

A pretty name for a pretty drink. Traditionally orange juice and champagne, this was replaced with my favourite de-alcoholised sparkling cuvee.

Place the slice of orange on the rim first – otherwise you will overflow. Fill with fake champagne, et voila

This turned out pretty orangey actually. It would be more exciting and refreshing with slightly less than 1/3 orange juice, to get more of the bubbles.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2/3 fake champagne
  • 1/3 orange juice

Instructions

  • Fill a champagne glass one-third with orange juice
  • Garnish with a slice of orange
  • Top with fake champagne
  • Relax

Description

Based on the Bundaberg Brewed Blood Orange, with passionfruit for extra flavour.
The Blood Orange is a fantastic drink – sweet, refreshing, fizzy, all by itself.
But when you add passionfruit, and a dash of lime tartness, this really does become something special.

 


Scale

Ingredients

  • Bottle of Bundaberg Blood Orange
  • 20ml lime juice
  • 30 ml orange juice
  • 1 passionfruit

Instructions

  • Add lime juice, orange juice and passionfruit to glass and stir.
  • Top with Bundaberg Blood Orange.
  • Garnish with orange slice.

Description

Obviously inspired by the refreshing “Sex on the beach” there are various combinations of this mocktail and cocktail.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 oz orange juice
  • 2 oz cranberry juice
  • 2 oz pineapple juice
  • ice
  • slice of peach to garnish

Instructions

  • Pour juices and ice into a cocktail shaker and shake, to cool the juices
  • Pour into highball glass
  • Garnish with a slice of peach

Keywords: abstinence on the beach, cranberry juice, peach

The original “Sex on the beach” cocktail definitely has cranberry juice, vodka and peach schnapps, but depending on you you speak to, has pineapple juice and/or orange juice.

Ditto the “Abstinence on the beach” – many recipes use coconut milk and frozen cranberry/grapefruit concentrates – but why use concentrates when you have fresh juice, and where did the coconut milk come from?

This recipe sits on the fence and uses both orange and pineapple juice – the latter adding a tartness that definitely wakes you up.

Description

For the wondering/wandering Alice – an unusual bright pink cream and juice mocktail.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 10ml grenadine
  • 10ml orange juice
  • 20ml pineapple juice
  • 40ml cream

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in cocktail shaker
  • Pour into cocktail glass

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.
