Tips and Tricks
- If you want to make this drink a cocktail instead of a mocktail, add 1-2 ounces of vodka. A flavored vodka would be delicious in this!
- You don't need any fancy bar equipment to make this drink - I love a mocktail for the ease of use. Since you're not adding alcohol, there's no need to measure ingredients strictly. Just add a bit of this and a bit of that until it tastes good!
- One of the great parts of this recipe is the adaptiveness of it. You can use seltzer water in place of sparkling water if you want - there are so many great flavored seltzers out there now. Leave out the lemon juice if you don't have any - it will still be good!
Did you know?
The first widely known mocktail is the Shirley Temple which is a combination of Grenadine and Ginger Ale and garnished with a cherry. It was invented in the 1930's, and doesn't actually have any tie to the famous actress.
Since then, mocktails have come a long long way. For designated drivers, pregnant women, or just people who don't like alcohol, there is now a wide range of drinks that hold just as much flavor as a mixed drink without the alcohol.
