…and it’s so easy to make, you’ll be impressed with your ‘bartending’ talents!
I get parched quite easily. I’m always in the mood for a glass of water (which I usually keep by my side, in this super cute tumbler) but sometimes, plain ol’ H20 doesn’t cut it. I often like to mix my own drinks with simple ingredients that I usually have in my fridge and/or freezer.
Making mocktails isn’t hard at all. I like to go as simple as possible, using only about two major flavour profiles as the mocktail’s main ingredients.
It’s fun thinking of flavour ideas. I turn to classic desserts to help inspire my homemade beverages. Believe it or not, a lot of classic pies (think, coconut key-lime pie) can help stir-up lots of great ideas for your drinks’ flavour pairings.
From Mocktail to Cocktail
If you want to give this beverage an adult twist, you can add 1-2 oz. of your favourite gin. Be sure to stir thoroughly before serving!
Mocktails for Entertaining
When I’m hosting guests, I always like to have alcoholic and non-alcoholic options to serve. This fizzy beverage is even great for kiddos! It gives them the fun of fizzle and bubbles, but isn’t as sugary as a soda!
