Grape & Rosemary 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. I previously shared the easier mocktails, but now it’s time for the only mocktail that requires a bit more effort. But in fairness it still isn’t a whole lot of effort. Tthe other cocktails were mainly just “mix this and this and this”. This Grape & Rosemary Mocktail is slightly different as we are making our own grape syrup. We are going to cook some fresh grapes in Demerara sugar, lime juice and grape juice and rosemary. We are using grape juice instead of water to really bring out the grape flavour in this. By adding the rosemary this early on as well we can get a lovely hint of rosemary in our cocktail. Once we have our syrup cooked it’s just a matter of leaving it cool down and then adding the remaining ingredients on top, as with the other recipes.
|250g fresh grapes (red or blue)|
|100ml grape juice|
|3tablespoons Demerara sugar|
