Stepping up my mocktail game, I love the sophisticated sips of the Pomegranate Mocktail Sour! This delightful concoction combines the vibrant notes of pomegranate juice, invigorating essence of mandarin, tropical infusion of coconut water, and a lively citrus kick from fresh lemon juice. Feel free to use clementines or tangerines, which have a similar sweetness to mandarins.
I added a touch of rich maple syrup for sweetness, and subtle depth with a hint of bitters. Aquafaba is just the liquid from a can of garbanzo beans, but you can use an egg white here as a sub. This tasty drink pairs perfectly with Viski’s elegant Seneca Faceted Coupe Glass!
Let me share a bit more about Viski – a brand that has become my go-to for enhancing the beauty of the mocktails and cocktails I’ll be mixing up all year. Renowned for its commitment to craftsmanship and design, Viski offers a stunning range of barware and glassware, including the elegant Seneca Faceted Coupe Glass featured here! The beauty of Viski’s products not only lies in their aesthetic appeal but also in the way they elevate the entire drinking experience. With Viski, each glass becomes a work of art, adding sophistication to every sip!
Let’s dive into crafting the Pomegranate Mocktail Sour! Start by combining all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, shaking vigorously until chilled. Next, double strain the mocktail mixture into a sophisticated coupe glass like the Viski Seneca Faceted Coupe Glass. Double straining just means carefully filtering the blended mocktail mixture through a fine mesh strainer after shaking, ensuring a smooth and refined texture by removing any pulp or ice shards. For an extra touch of elegance, garnish with a dehydrated mandarin slice before enjoying!
What is aquafaba?
Aquafaba is the liquid obtained from cooked or canned chickpeas. This plant-based ingredient is a great substitute for egg whites in various recipes, including mocktails.
How do I make a dehydrated mandarin slice?
Making dehydrated mandarin slices is a simple process. Start by thinly slicing mandarin segments and placing them in a food dehydrator or oven at a low temperature until they achieve a dried, crisp texture. If you prefer a convenient option, dehydrated mandarin slices are often available in stores.
Can I use regular NA bitters instead of NA orange bitters?
While I recommend NA orange bitters for their specific flavor profile, you can experiment with regular NA bitters to customize the mocktail according to your taste preferences. Adjust the quantity to achieve the desired balance of flavors.
What else can I use if I don’t have maple syrup?
I like pure maple syrup for its warmth and richness, but you can also use agave nectar, honey, or simple syrup in the Pomegranate Mocktail Sour.
What other garnishes can I use for the Pomegranate Mocktail Sour?
Feel free to get creative with garnishes! In addition to dehydrated mandarin slices, you can try fresh pomegranate arils, a twist of lemon peel, or even a sprig of mint to enhance the visual appeal and aroma of your Pomegranate Mocktail Sour.
