Romantic non-alcoholic cocktail (mocktail) recipes that anyone can enjoy!
With Valentine’s Day coming up, you may be wondering how to celebrate with your loved one.
Why not whip-up a delicious, Valentine’s Day themed cocktail? Or, even better, lovingly create a Valentine’s Day mocktail - all the taste and pleasure without the alcohol, making it safe for everyone in the family to drink!
We’ve put together three delicious Valentine’s Day alcohol-free cocktail recipes for you to make at home using our Totally Fruity Raspberry and Apple juice drink.
Apple and Raspberry Mojito Mocktail
This alcohol-free take on the popular mojito cocktail recipe is refreshing and crisp, great for Valentine’s Day and it’s so easy to make, too! You don’t even need fresh raspberries, thanks to our Totally Fruity Raspberry and Apple.
Makes two mocktails
360ml Totally Fruity Raspberry and Apple
2 tbsp agave nectar or honey
8 tsp apple cider vinegar
Soda water or Joosed Fizz Apple
Mint leaves to garnish (optional)
Raspberries to garnish (optional)
Pour the Totally Fruity Raspberry and Apple into a cocktail shaker and add the agave syrup or honey and apple cider vinegar and give it a quick shake to mix.
Add the ice, if using, and shake until the cocktail shaker is very cold.
Pour through the strainer into glasses filled with ice.
Top with soda water or Joosed Fizz Apple.
Garnish with the mint leaves and raspberries if using.
If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, don’t worry. Just use a jug instead and stir vigorously with a spoon until the ingredients are well mixed before pouring into the glasses with ice. We also recommend chilling the mix before pouring into the glass to reduce the temperature too, but that’s up to you - we like our mojitos served cold.
Virgin Raspberry Margaritas
This virgin margarita recipe is incredibly simple to make; the apple in the Totally Fruity Raspberry and Apple adds an extra layer of tanginess and the lime and salt (or sugar, if you prefer, to make it sweet) rim takes it to the next level.
Makes two virgin raspberry margaritas
250ml Totally Fruity Raspberry and Apple
2 tbsp lime juice (fresh or bottled - it’s up to you)
1 lime wedge per glass
180ml orange juice
1 tsp honey
1-2 drops vanilla essence (optional)
Salt or sugar for the rim
Run a lime wedge around the rim of each glass to moisten it, angling it so that the lime goes on the outside of the glass and no pieces of lime end up in your drink.
Pour the salt or sugar onto a saucer and run the moist rim of your glasses in it to coat the edge - you may need to tilt it slightly. If it doesn’t look quite right, you can always wash it off and start again until you have it looking how you want it. We find that a light, thin coating of sugar or salt works best.
Add all the wet ingredients into a jug and mix really well, ensuring the honey is fully dissolved into the mixture.
Pour into the salt/sugar rimmed glasses and garnish with a lime wedge.
Virgin Raspberry and Apple Rickey
A non-alcoholic version of a Gin Rickey, this recipe is great for anyone who is a fan of a Gin Rickey or fruity mocktails. The original Gin Rickey is made very simply with gin, lime, and sparkling water - it’s that simple. Our Virgin Raspberry and Apple Rickey is just as simple! It’s so easy to make, we haven’t even broken the method down into steps!
All you’ll need to make our Virgin Raspberry and Apple Rickey is our Totally Fruity Raspberry and Apple, some sparkling water (or some Joosed Fizz, if you’d prefer), and some lime juice.
All you need to do to make this is fill glass with plenty of ice in it half with Totally Fruity Raspberry & Apple and half with sparkling water (or Joosed Fizz), top up with a 3 tbsp of lime juice, and garnish with raspberries and a wedge of lime on the edge of the glass (optional). That’s it! It’s that easy.
