Missing a drink for your weekend? Here are some simple mocktails you can whip up at home in minutes.
Roy Rogers Mocktail
Let’s begin with something basic that uses ingredients we all definitely have at home. This one requires Grenadine, Coke or Pepsi, and cherries for garnish. Mix 1-part grenadine and 3 parts of your soda into a tall glass filled with ice. To this, add your cherry as garnish and voila!
Sparkling Raspberry Mocktail
Now, we will dig into something more fancy if you’re having people over. Get your pitcher out and add frozen lemonade concentrate and 3 cups of water. Go all out by sprinkling raspberries into an ice cube tray and add raspberry lemonade into the tray. Freeze this to obtain fancy ice cubes. Pour in the frozen lemonade, throw in the ice cubes, and top all of this off with sparkling grape juice.
Bored with the regulars? Need a twist and addition of a zing to your mode? A Lemon Espresso happens to be the excellent choice! Put 4 cups of creamy milk into a pan and add sugar to this. To this, add 2 tablespoons of coffee powder, 12 tablespoons of dark chocolate and 2 tablespoons of grated lemon. Stir this mixture on a hot flame and cool after done. Serve this in a coffee mug and you’re ready to go.
My go-to drink and an all-time favorite, the virgin mojito packs a refreshing punch. It’s also very easy to make. All you need to do is – mash 1 teaspoon of brown sugar with 4 sprigs of mint. To this mash, add quarter of a glass of apple juice, half a glass of lemonade, ½ glass of lime juice. Decorate with two lime wedges and serve!
