Blood Orange Mocktail

 

Blood Orange Mocktail

Strong brews of herbal teas make a great base for delicious mocktails. They’re so colorful and flavorful, you’ll not miss the booze. This combo of our Blood Orange Smoothie, ginger, tart juice and rosemary makes a zippy summertime drink. Ginger beer is actually brewed and fermented. It has far less sugar and carbonation than ginger ale and a stronger ginger flavor.

Yields two tall (12 oz) drinks 

INGREDIENTS:

 

  • 2 heaping tsp (or one tea sachet) Blood Orange Smoothie  
  • 1 cup freshly boiled water
  • 1/4 cup fruit juice of your choice: lemon and cranberry work well! 
  • 1 can or bottle (12 oz) ginger beer, chilled
  • 2 fresh rosemary sprigs
  • Ice cubes

 

PREPARATION:

  • Make a strong brew of the Blood Orange Smoothie by steeping the tea for 8-10 minutes in freshly boiled water.  Strain the leaves out and chill the tea for 2 hours. 
  • Pour the chilled tea concentrate into a cocktail shaker. Add the fruit juice to the tea and shake well.  
  • Pour ginger beer into two glasses with ice, dividing evenly. Rub the rosemary sprigs between your hands vigorously for a few seconds to release their aroma and place into the glasses with the ginger beer. 
  • Divide the tea & juice mix between the two glasses. Stir gently and serve.
