This family friendly Pomegranate Appletiser mocktail is alcohol free and a perfect drink for enjoying in the sunshine. It's easy to make and the frozen grapes in it make it a fun drink too.
Somewhere in my head I still think it's the middle of August. I go out without taking a coat, I lie down in the garden and the park, I have the patio doors almost constantly open and I sit on the decking reading a book. Well, I would if I had more time.
I know it won't last this Indian summer we're having. After all, the leaves on the trees are turning brown and I know that winter is just around the corner.
Well, winter maybe on the horizon but it still feels a long way off, especially when I've been drinking Pomegranate Appletiser mocktails outside in October.
What's Pomegranate Appletiser like?
The slightly sharp but sweet flavour or the pomegranate pairs well with the traditional apple of Appletiser. It's lovely to drink on its own. You really don't need to do anything to it at all but sometimes you want to.
After all, the weather is warm, the sun is shining, and drinking mocktails (or cocktails if you prefer) in the garden will definitely not be something you can do next month. Well, you might be able to, but it won't be the same while wrapped up in a woolly coat.
Use frozen grapes instead of ice cubes
I used frozen grapes instead of ice cubes in the mocktails and you could also freeze other fruit to use instead. Grapes freeze really well and if you eat them straight from the freezer they are a little like sorbet. I wanted to emphasize the pomegranate flavour so added a little pomegranate molasses but if you don't have it you could add a fruit cordial instead, or just the honey.
Or just enjoy the Pomegranate Appletiser on its own. Whatever is easiest.
Recipe for Pomegranate Appletiser Mocktail
Pomegranate Appletiser Mocktail
- 275 ml Pomegranate Appletiser
- ¼ lemon juiced
- 1 tsp honey
- 2 tsp pomegranate molasses
- 10 grapes frozen
- ¼ apple to garnish (optional)
- Put the grapes in the freezer a few hours or a day before you make the mocktail.
- Squeeze the lemon and if you are using apple slices, rub the edge of the lemon over the apple to stop it going brown.
- Put all the ingredients (except the grapes and apple) in a tall glass and stir to dissolve the honey and the pomegranate molasses. If you don't do this they will just sit on the bottom of the glass.
- Add the frozen grapes and garnish with a couple of apple slices.
