Question So what's your favourite Mocktail

Anyone got something they specialise in and everyone wants them to make or something they love to drink?

I like a Sunrise mocktail - pineapple and orange juices with a dash of grenadine topped with lemonade. So refreshing.

Then there is always a non-alcoholic strawberry daiquiri! Yum!

And one of my local restaurants makes a Kiwi Mocktail from passionfruit and kiwi syrups, pineapple juice and fresh kiwis. Very thick at the end but still scrummy.

Not enough restaurants serve mocktails in my opinion.

I have seen a few Mocktails but you're right Bilby not many places serve them.

There are heaps of recipes on the net

LOL@mock mock-alcohol

I've never had a Bloody Mary, but isn't just Tomato Juice and Vodka? so Tomato Juice is ur drink lol?

Anyone have any TNT recipes that copy Cocktails?

Might give some a try, google has heaps but just wanted to see if anyone had any ones they KNOW taste good lol

There is a lot more to a bloody mary than just tomato juice and vodka. Tomato juice is the base, but some of the other additions you might find in a good bloody mary are lemon juice, black pepper, worcetershire sauce, hot sauce, celery salt, horseradish, just to name a few things.

Not sure if this would really be considered a mock tail, but I enjoy orange juice with seltzer.

You might know it better by one of its other names such as soda water or club soda.

GB I add soda water to all my drinks that aren't hot or milk based. Makes them a whole lot less sweet and much more refreshing.
