Non-alcoholic cocktails that really taste good
They’re as refreshing as gin and tonics, as complex as Sazeracs, and as alcoholic as…apple juice. These drinks from today’s top bartenders loose the booze- but not the flavour.
Non-alcoholic tropical fizz
Put tinned fruit to good use in this sparkling quencher with kiwi, strawberries and pineapple. Find yourself a good tropical fruit juice as a base – or if you have a juicer to hand, you could try making your own with anything from mango and lychees to fresh passion fruit.
Mulled apple juice
Often the reserve of festive revelry, the process of mulling works with a wide range of base drinks. Try using apple or pear juice and spice to taste- a touch of citrus, cinnamon and a sweetener such as honey or agave should do the trick. A non-alcoholic alternative to mulled wine, ideal for entertaining kids and drivers
Ditch shop-bought lemonade for a cloudy homemade alternative. Lime makes for a tangy drop – blend the limes whole into a pulp and combine with soda water. This recipe works with vodka or rum if you’re catering for those who fancy a tipple.
