ISO non alcoholic drink recipes

DolcesMomDecember 22, 2002

Planning my last party of the year for my son and his family. Since there are no drinkers in the bunch I would like to make some mock-tails, but all my recipes taste watered down. Anyone have anything really good that tastes authentic? Any suggestions would be appreciated. My son will drink anything with a weird name. HA HA! TIA

Hey Melody,
I dug out my "cocktails for two" book and the back pages are full of mocktails. Here are some recipes;

Tomato Juice Cocktail
shake together tomato juice, a good squeeze of lemon juice, a couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce, a few drops of tabasco, a pinch of celery salt, and a shake of pepper. Strain and serve straight up or on the rocks. Garnish with a slice of lemon and a celery stick.

Rosy Pippin
Stir a wine glas of apple juice with a dash of grenadine and a squeeze of lemon juice. Top off with ginger ale and garnish with an apple slice.

Acapulco Gold
Shake together six parts pineapple juice, one part grapefruit juice, two parts coconut creme, two parts fresh cream and a scoop of crushed ice. Serve unstrained.

Boo Boo's Special
Shake together equal quantities of orange juice and pineapple juice, a squeeze of lemon juice, a dash of Angostura bitters, a dash of grenadine and a scoop of crushed ice. Serve unstrained, garnished with fruit.

Cardinal Punch
Over ice cubes pour four parts cranberry juice, two parts orange juice, one part lemon juice and ginger ale to top it off. Garnish with fruit.

Hope this is of some help to you. Have fun at your party! NancyLouise
