Let’s Drink: Various Themed Mocktails

Standard

I found a page of mocktails that I made for a New Year’s Eve party two years ago. I thought they were lost forever due to the computer failure. These were a huge hit with the teenagers and are why I had the Attack on Titan themed ones. I made one inspired by each teen’s favorite fandom. Hopefully, the rest will turn up someday, and I can share them as well.

Sonic Screwdriver (There are a lot of recipes for this around, but this is the one I used.)

3 oz. Orange Juice
1.5 oz Blue Raspberry Mix (or make your own and dye it blue)
.5 oz Lime Juice
1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
3 oz Ginger Ale

In a shaker with ice add OJ, Blue Raspberry Mix, Vanilla, and Lime Juice. Shake. Pour through a strainer into a glass with Ginger Ale.

TMNT

1 can Frozen Limeade Concentrate
1 cup Coca-cola (I cannot testify to the taste with another Cola)1 cup Orange Juice
1 cup Water
About 10 ice cubes
Lime Wedges
Green Pop Rocks

In a pitcher, mix Limeade, ice, Coca-Cola, Orange Juice, and Water. This should make a slushy mixture. If the mix isn’t green enough, add a few drops of food coloring or a natural green additive. Store in the refrigerator or freezer until served; it needs to stay slushy. To serve, pour into a glass, top with Green Pop Rocks and Lime Wedges.

Hetalian Sunrise

.5 cup Orange Juice
.5 cup Coconut Milk
.5 cup Ginger AleSplash Cherry Syrup or Grenadine
Whipped Cream

Add four ice cubes to serving glass. Measure and pour the ingredients in the following order: Orange Juice, Coconut Milk, Ginger Ale. Add a splash of Syrup. Do not stir. Top with Whipped Cream and an umbrella.

Let’s Drink: Attack On Titan Mocktails

Standard

attackontitanDuring 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:

Eren Jaegerbomb:
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.

Sasha’s Slammer:
4 oz Flavored Ginger Ale
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Strawberry Extract
2 oz. Sweet and Sour Mix
Splash Grenadine
Mix Extracts, Sweet and Sour, and Grenadine. Pour over Ginger Ale and Ice. Serve.

Wings of Freedom
4 oz. WoF Mix (recipe below)
Ice
Honey
Coconut Flakes
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.

Mikasa’s Medley
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.
Armin’s Plan
6 oz Cranberry Juice
4 oz Flavored Ginger Ale
Dash of Lime
Sparkler
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
