I had such great entries for the Maggie Beer Mocktail Giveaway. I wanted to have a breakdown of each entry so that you can make their creation if you wish to.
1. @mocked_ Created a wonderful orange fizz mocktail.
Tropical juice, freshly squeezed orange, sugar and a squeeze of lemon. (You can add some soda/mineral water if you wish. This is my addition to mocked_’s creation)
2. @mandachic84 created a super yummy and bright looking Lemon, Lime and Bitters.
I have taken how to make a Lemon, Lime and Bitters drink from wikipedia, see below:
Lemon, Lime and Bitters is a mixed drink made with lemonade, lime cordial, and Angostura bitters. The lemonade is sometimes substituted with lemon squash instead. Wikipedia
Main alcohol: Bitters
Ingredients: 1/2 oz Lime juice cordial (aka sweetened lime juice), 1/2 oz Lemonade, 4-5 dashes of Angostura Bitters
Preparation: Rim the inside of the glass with 4 to 5 dashes of Angostura Bitters then pour lemonade and lime cordial into glass. Garnish with Lemon if desired.
3. @donkey1212z created a tasty and yummy looking cranberry mocktail.
Add cranberry juice, carbonated water, orange juice, a pinch of powered ginger, orange zest. Mint to decorate. No set measurements, just as per your taste.
3. @tamboarillo created a tomato chilli cocktail. Something different and healthy as well.
Tomato juice, add some chilli (depending on how hot you like it you might add more, or less if you just want a little kick). Make sure you add ice to make it really chilled. Added extras can be lemon juice, or pepper. Really depends on your tastes.
Strawberry was added as a garnish. If you prefer something other than a strawberry then add a raspberry or other item.
4. @belindamoxey created a pear mocktail that made me feel that I was on an exotic getaway.
Combine 2 parts pear juice with 1 part lemon juice and 1 part sugar syrup (more or less depending on your sweet tooth) in a cocktail shaker and shake with lots of ice. Pour into a glass and add soda water. Jazz it up with a cute little umbrella and garnish and you’ll definitely not feel like you’re missing out
5. @threeandme59 had a great mocktail created with pomegranate juice and cranberry juice. A very yummy looking mocktail.
All you need is equal quantities of pomegranate juice, cranberry juice and Soda water, deliciously good and SO EASY on a hot day, or any day! I throw in a few blueberries for yumminess, colour and antioxidants, and fresh mint leaves when available.
6. @figs_and_honey created a brilliant looking and sounding mocktail. Raspberries, apple juice and all with a slither of homemade toffee!
Fresh raspberries mixed with a little lemon juice, sugar and chilled apple juice and ice cubes..blended with a wedge of lemon and slither of homemade toffee!
Vicki from Figs and Honey Catering and Events was taken with the reaction to this mocktail that she has added it to her list of items for the grazing platters and more. Ask her for one when you order some of her lovely food. Or if you wish to know how she makes it… not sure she will share her secrets but you can ask.
I hope you liked these different mocktail creations. Thanks so much for all the amazing and clever entries.
