Ginger Beer & Pineapple Mocktail
Christmas and New Year’s Eve are traditionally two days where a lot of alcohol is consumed. So when my friend suggested I make some mocktail recipes, I was immediately sold on the idea. I created 5 mocktail recipes, 4 very easy ones and one requiring a bit more effort. And just like that.. it’s time for the very last mocktail! The first time I ever drank ginger beer (non-alcoholic) was on the flight to Australia. I had heard it really helps with motion sickness and the flight was fairly bumpy so figured I’d give it a go. What a lifesaver it was!
That being said, ginger beer does have a very strong flavour and not everyone might like it that much. A great alternative could be ginger ale, which is usually less strong. My advice would be to just buy a small bottle of what you are thinking of using. Have a sip and see if it’s what you like before committing to buying more. I used Fever-Tree Ginger beer myself. We’re combining this with pineapple juice, one of my favourite fruit juices. The finishing touches? Fresh mint, lime juice and cinnamon!
