Mocktails - Non-alcoholic cocktail recipes

by Anastasia Hartleib
Alkoholfreie Cocktails - 15 Rezepte für den Genuss ohne Alkohol

Alcohol-free cocktails are no longer just sweet and sticky. Thanks to the constantly growing interest in cocktails without alcohol, more and more creative recipes for mocktails, virgin cocktails or driver cocktails, as non-alcoholic mixed drinks are also known, are being created to suit all tastes.

Whether spicy, creamy, savory, herbal or refreshing fruit bombs - you'll find the right non-alcoholic drink for you in our mocktail recipes.

Overview of our non-alcoholic cocktails with recipe:

What does Mocktail mean?

The word mocktail is made up of the two English words "(to) mock" and "cocktail" and alludes to the fact that non-alcoholic cocktails would merely imitate the versions with alcohol. Over time, however, many independent cocktail recipes have been created, so that there is no longer any question of imitation.

Classic non-alcoholic cocktails

While the house bar should always be stocked with enough spirits for classic cocktails, there are of course no high-proof spirits for virgin cocktail recipes. However, there are also more and more non-alcoholic alternatives in the spirits sector that make mixing non-alcoholic cocktails easier. Especially for connoisseurs who love the taste of classic cocktails but don't want the revolutions, alcohol-free gin, rum or whisky alternatives can be a real enrichment!

The basic equipment for alcohol-free cocktails

Just like for classic recipes, you also need a similar basic equipment of juices, syrup variants or fillers for mocktails. However, it is often difficult to make the right choice when starting out. That's why we answer the most important questions here.

Which juices for non-alcoholic cocktails?

In general, the fresher the juice, the better. That's why it's best to use direct juices (also known as mother juices) or home-pressed juices for virgin cocktails. You should avoid so-called fruit juice drinks or nectars, which generally only have a very low fruit content. Exception: fruit products that are so viscous that they could hardly be processed as direct juice. Banana nectar is therefore perfectly fine.

Direct juices or fresh, home-pressed juices are best for preparing cocktails.

If you want to try your hand at the mocktail scene, you should definitely have the following juices to hand:

  • Orange juice
  • Lemon juice
  • Lime juice

In addition, bartenders often use cranberry juice, pineapple juice and pomegranate juice. Good to know: The same basic juice recipe also applies to cocktails with alcohol

Which syrup for cocktails without alcohol?

What else is syrup and what's the difference to juice, you ask? Syrups are fruit or herbal juices that have been preserved with sugar and are therefore generally much sweeter and thicker than direct juices. Their advantage: they last much longer than fresh juices, can be used in a variety of ways and sometimes act as a sweetener with a special kick. You can now fill your home bar with syrups in all colors and flavors.

Syrups are great to make yourself - but you can also buy good quality ones.

If you want to make sure that the syrup only contains the ingredients you want to taste, you can of course make it yourself. Essentially, syrup is made according to the following ratio: 1:1:0.5 - for example, 1 kg of fruit + 1 liter of water + 0.5 kg of sugar. The ratio should be adjusted depending on how sweet and/or watery the fruit used is. In some cases, this requires a little finesse - or the right recipe. In some recipes, citric acid is also added to extend the shelf life of the syrups - and to spice up the taste a little.

Which fillers for non-alcoholic cocktails?

As with juices and syrups, the choice of suitable fillers basically depends on the recipe of the mocktail you want to mix. However, it is always a good idea to have the following fillers in stock:

  • Tonic water, (preferably classic, i.e. not too mild)
  • Soda (i.e. water with fizz)
  • Cola
  • Bitter Lemon
  • Ginger Ale

If you are particularly fond of creamy cocktails, you should also always have some cream, milk and coconut milk in stock.
