New Year’s Eve Mocktails

New Years Eve is usually the time of year I’m the person in charge of making cocktails for everyone (possibly the reason everyone wakes up the next day full of regret). But this year I was making mock tails for myself, the husband and for a treat the spawn. She got to indulge in some sugary goodness. So obviously planning what to make became a bit of a dig through cookbooks and Pinterest to find something that we could ring I the new year with. Sure we could have done what I did last time I was knocked up on New Years and just have me drinking sparkling water but fuck that! I’m bored with just drinking water I need some flavour! After creating both of these bad boys I realised they are pretty similar.


Makes 1 Jug

750ml Ginger Ale

2 cups Pineapple Juice

1 Cup Coconut water

1 1/2 cups Diced pineapple

1/2 Cup Maraschino Cherries

1/4 cup grenadine


Put ice and all liquid ingredients in jug/pitcher and stir to combine. Add the cherries and slowly mix through


Makes 1 Drink

Maraschino Cherry for Garnish

150ml Ginger Ale

150ml Lemon-Lime Soda

30mls Grenadine Syrup


Fill glass with ice and add the ginger ale, lemon-limesoda and grenadine. Mix well and garnish with the cherry. Don’t forget to add a straw to make it look fancy.

On ending this post I’d like to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEARS! Leave the bullshit from 2019 and start of fresh in 2020 (need to make room for new bullshit). Thanks to everyone that have continued to read my posts and hope you all enjoy your celebrations.
