I really went out of my comfort zone this weekend by making a layered cake recipe and 2 mocktails. The mocktails aren’t that new, I did make quite a lot of them last year but I was never hugely happy with the photos I took but they tasted amazing and were such fun to make. On the other side, I really don’t enjoy making layered cakes as I just don’t have the patience or finesse to make everything look even and well-finished unlike my friend The Sweet Maven.

But when I opened up the bottle of Monin Gingerbread Syrup I immediately thought of 3 recipes that would go so well with it. The first one is this extremely simple apple-gingerbread syrup sparkling mocktail. I mean it really could not be easier to make! You only need a few ingredients to make this and it’s ready in no time.

Tip: It’s also great when served warm as a tea!



Adjust Servings
500ml good-quality apple juice
4tbsp Monin Gingerbread Syrup
250ml soda water (or more)
1 red apple (to serve)


If you're making it as a tea
Heat up the apple juice and syrup in a pot. Add boiling water instead of soda water (same quantity) and enjoy!
Mark as complete
If you're making it as mocktails
Add the apple juice and syrup to a jug and stir well.
Top up with soda water when you're ready to serve. You can add more for a lighter apple-gingerbread taste but I would not go for more than the same amount of apple juice.

Slice up an apple in discs (from top to bottom)
Half each disc and put one disc in the mocktail glass.
