A blue mocktail

Here are some simple recipes for mocktails for kids. (However, make sure to serve these to kids who are above the age of 3 years!)

1. Fizzling Raspberry

Ingredients Needed

  • Raspberry juice
  • Raspberry sherbet
  • Drinking soda/cool water

How to Prepare

Take a blender and put together the juice and the sherbet scoops in it. Add the soda or water to it, and blend it all together till it is consistent and smooth. Pour the mixture into nice glasses, and let your kids enjoy.

Please note that regularly serving drinking soda to kids is not recommended, as it can pose health issues in the future.

2. Forgotten Bench

Ingredients Needed

  • A bunch of dill
  • Pistachios
  • Water
  • Sugar
  • Grapefruit juice
  • Lemon juice
  • Tonic water

How to Prepare

Take the dill leaves, and blend them together with water. Strain the mixture and keep it aside.

Take a cup full of pistachios and blend them together with water till they are fine. Strain that mixture and keep it aside. This is called pistachio milk.

Blend together half a cup of pistachios with some sugar till it is fine. Take out this mixture and add it to a saucepan with a cup of water. Heat it on a medium flame until the sugar is dissolved. After it cools down, strain it so that the pistachio nuts are separated. What remains is the pistachio syrup.

Now take the blended dill, the pistachio milk, and the pistachio syrup all together in a glass and shake it all well. Strain it into another glass filled with ice cubes. Add tonic water to the mixture and top it off with a dill and pistachio for presentation.

3. Mint Choco Mocktail

Ingredients Needed

  • Mint flavoured chocolate ice cream
  • Coconut cream
  • Crushed ice
  • Half and half cream
  • Chocolate syrup

How to Prepare

Take a plate and add a small amount of chocolate syrup on it. Take a glass (a martini glass is preferred) and invert it over the plate. Coat the rim of the glass with the syrup. Make sure it is completed covered in it.

Once done, add the ice cream, coconut cream, crushed ice, half and half to the glass and keep stirring constantly so that they all mix together properly. Once the mixture is smooth, the mocktail is ready to be served.

4. Mango Frappe

Ingredients Needed

How to Prepare

Put the chunks of mango in a blender and blend them well to form a puree. Add orange juice and lemon juice to the blender and continue blending it together. Follow it up with adding the ice cubes and the soda/water. Blend in pulses to avoid fizzing of the soda, if using, until it is smooth. Pour it into a glass and serve it.

7. Sweet Sour Sparkler

Ingredients Needed

  • Pear nectar
  • Sweet and sour mocktail mix

Put this entire mixture in the refrigerator for a few hours. Once chilled, pour it into the glasses coated with sugar and serve it chilled.
