3 Spring Mocktails & Beautiful Barware

in, Cooking Home

I’m not one for alcohol, but I do love the idea of combining some of my favorite fresh flavors to create unique and beautiful drinks. Perfect for dinner parties brimming with fresh blooms and bruschetta, afternoons spent in the sun, or picnics by the shore, these mocktails are the perfect way to add a touch of sophistication to your next soiree or solo outing.

But whether it’s mocktails, cocktails, iced water or an iced latte, the perfect drink starts with the perfect ingredients and the perfect tools. For the last few weeks, I’ve been playing around with some recipes using my latest bar cart addition: this copper barware set from Taste Drink Go. It’s a beautiful shade of copper – somewhere between bronze and rose gold – that gets the job done without any mishaps or mistakes.

I ended up making three different drinks on a particularly lovely Saturday afternoon. The first was a Grapefruit Rosemary Mocktail. A tart, refreshing drink with a lovely pink hue.

Ingredients Needed:

  • grapefruit juice
  • rosemary stems
  • sugar
  • sparkling water

Find the recipe here

My second drink attempt consisted of blueberries, fresh mint leaves, lemonade and sparkling water. I think this one was my favorite out of the three, but I’m biased because any iced drink with lemonade in it is my favorite.

 

Ingredients Needed:

  • blueberries
  • water
  • sugar
  • lemonade
  • mint leaves
  • sparkling water

Find the recipe here.

The third drink was a raspberry mint mojito – hold the alcohol – with sparkling water and lime juice. Refreshing and delicious and just the thing for a late spring picnic.

Ingredients Needed:

  • fresh raspberries
  • mint leaves
  • simple syrup
  • lime juice
  • sparkling water
  • ice

The thing I love about all of these recipes are the interchangeable ingredients and tools needed to make them! Taste Drink Go has you covered with their build your own barware set (aka, if you already have a piece you can just buy what you need!) and a quick trip to your local market will take care of the rest. Experiment, create, go crazy with these drinks – because if nothing else you’ll have delicious momentoes of a fun and fancy-free afternoon in your kitchen.

    These sound like great recipes. I’m always looking for fun nonalcoholic drinks to mix up when my nieces and nephews visit. Thanks for sharing!

    We don’t drink but that doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy a refreshing drink. Mock tails are perfect. Very pretty bar

      That’s exactly what I think too! It’s a nice deviation from iced tead or just lemonade in the warm months.

    The blueberry drink looks like it would be my favorite, too. It looks very refreshing! So does the grapefruit one. Beautiful presentation, too!

    These looks refreshing and tasty! It looks like you have the same affinity for Anthropologie as I do. I just picked up the same small pitcher with the blue flowers.

    These look so yummy! I’m not really an alcohol drinker either, but I do love a pretty drink! Even just throwing some lime into my water makes me smile haha.

      Oh I’m exactly the same way! A little lemon or lime in my water and I’m a happy camper!

    A bunch of my friends and relatives are pregnant right now, so I’m bookmarking this page for when they come over to visit. So beautiful — and yummy, too, I’m sure!
