Jubilee Mocktails

Jubilee Mocktails fit for a Queen

We’re continuing our countdown to the Jubilee Weekend, with the yummy mocktails we created and tested last weekend. There’s three different ones to choose from, depending on what flavours you like best, or why not try creating your own! I didn’t add any additional sugar sirup to these like you often do with mocktails and cocktails, as I felt they were sweet enough from the fruit and juices, but if you like it a little sweeter than it’s easy to make a quick sugar sirup – just use one part sugar to two parts water, heat up until the sugar has completely dissolved and cook at a low heat for 5 minutes, then leave to cool. You’ll also need some ice cubes, so remember to make these in advance.

Jubilee Mocktails

Peachy Queen

For this you will need a tin of peaches in fruit juice, smooth orange juice (no bits!), sparkling lemonade (we prefer the cloudy kind), ice cubes and some fresh mint. Puree half of the tin of peaches with some of the juice to make a smooth puree, using a hand blender. If you don’t have a hand blender, tinned peaches should be soft enough to use a potato masher, your puree will just be a bit less smooth.

For each mocktail, use:

  • 4 Tbsp peach puree
  • 2 Tbsp orange juice
  • a dash of sugar sirup (optional)
  • 3-4 ice cubes
  • lemonade
  • a sprig of fresh mint

Shake the peach puree and orange juice (and sugar sirup, if using) with the ice until cold, then strain in to a glass tumbler. If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, you can use a jar with a lid. Top up with the lemonade, and garnish with a sprig of mint.

Betty Britain

For this you will need a punnet of strawberries, limes, pineapple juice, and grenadine sirup (optional). If you can’t find grenadine, you can leave it out of replace it with sugar sirup. Before you start, make a strawberry puree by chopping half the punnet of strawberries and cooking for a few minutes in a pan with a couple tablespoons of water and a pinch of sugar until they soften, then puree with a hand blender or use a potato masher for a more coarse puree.

For each mocktail use:

  • 2 Tbsp strawberry puree
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 120ml pineapple juice
  • a dash of grenadine or sugar sirup (optional)
  • 3-4 ice cubes

Add the strawberry puree to the bottom of a glass tumbler. Shake the lime juice and pineapple juice with the ice until cold, then strain in to the tumbler on top of the strawberry puree. Drizzle some grenadine sirup over the top. It will make a fun pattern as it sinks in. If you are using sugar sirup instead of grenadine, you can shake it in along with the juices.

Jolly Jubilee

For this, you will need Thai basil (or you can use mint instead if you can’t find Thai basil), fresh grapefruits, fresh lemons, and sparkling elderflower drink.

For each mocktail, use:

  • 4 leaves of Thai Basil or mint
  • juice of 1/2 a grapefruit
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • a dash of sugar sirup (optional)
  • 3-4 ice cubes
  • sparkling elderflower drink

Muddle the Thai basil at the bottom of your shaker. If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, you can use a jar with a lid. Add the grapefruit juice and lemon juice, and shake with the ice until cold. Strain in to a glass tumbler, and top up with the sparkling elderflower drink.
