During winter, my productivity goes down dramatically. And even when I do work, I let things stockpile. That’s my obnoxious way of excusing myself for the stockpile of projects and ideas I have let set for last three months. I want to end that today starting with sharing the mocktail recipes I made, or adapted, for an Attack On Titan themed New Year’s Party. Feel free to adapt these, and change the names, to suit your event. Mileage may vary:
1 oz Grenadine
8 oz Dr. Pepper
Splash Bitters, or just a tiny bit more
In serving glass, mix Dr. Pepper and Grenadine. Add splash Bitters, allow to settle for 10-20 seconds, and serve.
I can’t promise your guests will end up liking the Eren Jaegerbomb. It starts off as a refreshing drink, but when the bitters hit, it is like a bomb going off in your mouth. Half the guests like it, but the other half were shocked by the bitters.
4 oz Flavored Ginger Ale
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Strawberry Extract
2 oz. Sweet and Sour Mix
Mix Extracts, Sweet and Sour, and Grenadine. Pour over Ginger Ale and Ice. Serve.
Wings of Freedom
4 oz. WoF Mix (recipe below)
Canned Whipped Cream
Prior to the party, make the WoF mix by pureeing one can of chopped pineapple with juice, one can of cream of coconut, and blue food coloring. If this mix is too thick for your taste, add pineapple juice until the thickness you like. Store in refrigerator until needed.
Blend WoF mix and ice in blender until smooth – add to glass that has been rimmed in honey and coconut. Top with whipped cream.
For adults, add rum to make a pina colada.
1 oz Apple Juice
1 oz Simple Syrup
1 tsp Crème de Menthe
1 tsp Molasses
6 oz Orange Juice
Start by thinning Molasses with Apple Juice. Then add simple syrup, crème de menthe, and orange juice. Serve over ice.
If serving to adults, the apple juice and molasses can be replaced with rum.
6 oz Cranberry Juice
4 oz Flavored Ginger Ale
Dash of Lime
Mix ingredients together. Add sparkler, light, and enjoy.
For a safer, and much sweeter option, add rock candy on a stick instead of the sparkler. I was serving teenagers that err on the side of caution in general.
Death by Titan
3 oz Death by Titan Mix (recipe included)
1 oz Kicker (Colossal: Margarita Mix; Armored: Crème de Menthe; Female: Cherry Syrup)
Ginger Ale or Club Soda
Prior to party, combine any number of fresh or frozen fruits together in blender on puree setting. (For example, I used fresh strawberries, frozen raspberries, and a frozen fruit mix of papaya, mango, and pineapple. You want the mixture to a little chunky or gritty. If you want the mixture sweeter, add sugar. And if you want it a little thinner, add ginger ale or club soda during this step until consistency that you like. Keep refrigerated until needed.
Mix DbT Mix and Kicker together in glass. Add ice. Then, add Ginger Ale or Club Soda until glass is full. Top with Whipped Cream.
Feel free to adapt and rename these mocktails for your personal use. There is no rule that says Wings of Freedom can’t be renamed Elsa’s Surprise for a Disney themed party. It’s what I would do. 🙂
I have included a decorative menu, I used for the teenagers to ask for what they wanted: attackontitanmocktails
