Four Refreshing Mocktail Recipes You Can Mix From Home
Mocktails are stirring up the food and beverage industry one alcohol-less shaker at a time. These refreshing, non-alcoholic and often coffee-based beverages are delicious alternatives to their boozy counterparts.
At How You Brewin, we’ve begun crafting concoctions that rival cocktails in flavor and nutritional value! Here’s a few of our favorite invigorating mocktail recipes that you can mix up right from home.
1. Ginger mule
The Ginger Mule is a delicious take on the Moscow Mule, only instead of Vodka, we’re using cold brew. Add muddled lime, ice, ginger beer and a sprig of rosemary and you’ve got yourself a delicious, alcohol-free cocktail. The rosemary lends a gentle, woodsy aroma while the cold brew compliments the spicy ginger beer and supplies a subtle caffeine buzz.
2. Cold Fashioned
A traditional Old Fashioned contains muddled sugar and bitters, whiskey and a twist of citrus. For our “Cold Fashioned,” replace the sweet notes of whisky with vanilla and chocolate syrup. Add a splash of cold brew for a little kick and a cherry on top for good measure!
3. Strawberry Refresher
The fragrant Strawberry Refresher is the perfect patio companion. Fill a tall, chilled glass with muddled strawberries, seltzer, simple syrup and a squeezed lemon. Float a few freshly sliced cucumbers along the top of the drink for a crisp, subtle flavor.
4. Blueberry Vanilla Refresher
One taste and our Blueberry Vanilla Refresher will become your favorite post-beach beverage this summer. Combine muddled blueberry, seltzer, squeezed lemon and a bit of vanilla extract to balance out the fruity flavors.
