Mocktails: Not to be disregarded

Posted March 8th, 2011 by cws_mcqu

Spring is a great time to explore new beverages.  Contrary to urban legend, a great beverage doesn’t require alcohol.  A bartender friend of mine once worked for TGI Fridays.  They have a recipe book with about 200 alcohol free mocktails and spend as much time learning to build alcohol-free beverages as they do alcoholic beverages.  For an alcohol awareness program or just for a great tasting beverage here are some websites with some great recipes.

Many mocktails are too sweet, so try “muddling” fresh berries with fresh herbs like mint, or Thai basil, or lavender, or even rosemary.  Herbs can add complexity, some acidity and some tartness to the beverage and make it unique and special.  But be careful not to overpower the drink.  A little bit of herbs can go a long way.

Best regards,
