Save Water, Drink Mocktails | Mocktails

Every day gets a little better when you’ve got a cold mocktail in your hand. Don’t you think? Some people might think: “A mocktail? Why not a cocktail?” Well, I don’t really drink alcohol. Last year I actually also made a post about two mocktails I tried and loved. This year I thought I would do it as well because it’s always nice to know some mocktail recipes for the people that also don’t drink alcohol, like me. So here you have the non-alcoholic version of the Moscow Mule and a pink drink, which is called a Rosemary Blueberry Smash!

⌇ Moscow Mule ⌇

What you’ll need | Lime, sparkling water, ginger ale and ice (inspired by The Merrythought).

How to | One cocktail that’s very popular right now, is the Moscow Mule. Of course it’s also possible to make it into a mocktail. First you have to cut your lime in half. One half you will have to squeeze into your copper mug (don’t you just love this mocktail, only because of the mug?). The other half you have to cut in little wedges, which you will use to garnish your drink. Fill your copper mug about 1/2 with ginger ale. Now add a lot of ice (like a lot) and fill the rest of it with sparkling water. Maybe stir everything together if needed, add your lime wedges to garnish your mocktail and your Moscow Mule is done!

⌇ Rosemary Blueberry Smash ⌇

What you’ll need | Lemon, blueberries, agave syrup, rosemary sprigs, sparkling water and ice (inspired by Wit & Delight).

How to | Start by muddling about 8 blueberries in a cocktail shaker. Make sure you see some pink juice coming out of the blueberries and then add one tablespoon (or more if you like a sweet drink) of agave syrup and a rosemary sprig. Cut your lemon in half, squeeze some lemon juice into your shaker and lastly add the ice as well. Now shake your shaker until most of the ice is broken into small pieces. Make sure to use a strainer when you are adding the mocktail to your glass and don’t forget to fill the rest of your glass with sparkling water. Now you only have to garnish your drink with some blueberries, two rosemary sprigs (like I did) and v o I l à. Your lovely pink drink is finished!

Both of these mocktails are so easy to make and I will definitely be making them a lot more during summer. I feel like there are so many more tasty and easy mocktails out there, but I just can’t find ones that seem good to try. So let me know if you have any recommendations of books or just recipes I have to try. If I do find new mocktails I like, you can definitely expect a blog post about them on here. Are you a mocktail or cocktail type of person? Which of these would you like to try?

Love,

Neeltje

    This mocktail sounds great! I love anything that has blueberries in it. And the flavour combination must be fantastic.

    De Rosemary Blueberry Smash! De foto’s zijn trouwens hartstikke mooi. Toevallig ben ik nu bezig met het verlagen van mijn alcoholconsumptie (niet dat die heel hoog was hoor. Maar ik zit in een zware periode van rouw momenteel en ik merk dat ik toch iedere dag wel een glas ben gaan drinken). De cocktails zien er heerlijk uit. En is ook een leuk alternatief voor ‘spa bleuh’ zoals ik het weleens noem.
