From the moment I spotted these fresh mandarin oranges at our local Whole Foods I knew exactly what drink I wanted to make with them. Mocktail Beverage’s Inc. has some of the most delicious alcohol-free drinks that are perfect for creating just the type of drinks that I like to create throughout the spring and summer months.
The Sansgria is made with a combination of French, Italian, and Spanish wine grapes and the finest spice and botanicals to create a flavorful, sophisticated drink that isn’t overly sweet. With each sip, you can pretend that you are sitting at a restaurant in Seville, and about to pair it with the most delicious tapas the city has to offer.
It’s so easy to make since there are only three ingredients. First, it’s important to chill your Sansgria overnight in the refrigerator since there is no ice in this drink and it’s best served cold. Second, keep your Pomegranate arils in the refrigerator as well. Last of all, if you can’t find fresh mandarin oranges in the produce section of your local grocery store, clementines are another option!
- 1 bottle Sansgria (chilled)
- 3 tbsp. pomegranate arils
- Fresh Mandarin Orange Wedges (for garnish)
Add pomegranate arils to coupe glass, top with Sansgria and garnish with mandarin oranges. Serve.
— About the Brand —
When our families got together, we discovered that we were all searching for fun, alcohol free drinks without the artificial ingredients, preservatives or high fructose corn syrup. So we decided to create small batch mixology inspired drinks that had all the taste without the hassle, calories or chemicals.
Devotion to our craft, a passion for the best quality, and a refusal to compromise on flavor. These are the key ingredients which combine to make Mocktails a cut above the rest. From scouring the slopes of Central Italy’s Chianti region for the finest Sangiovese grapes for our Sansgria, to searching the dense woodland of south Asia for just the right Carthamus flower for our Mockapolitan, to exploring Andean rainforests for sustainable Quassia shrub to create a delicate balance of bitter base flavors for all our secret recipes.
With the intense and obsessive care of master parfumiers, the Mocktails mixologists have spent years sourcing exactly the right botanicals and combining them in precisely the right quantities to arrive at the delicious, complex and tantalizing balance of flavors in every Mocktails drink. So whether it’s the perfectly ripe Mexican lime in your Mockarita, the Sicilian lemon in your Mockscow Mule, or the subtle hint of juniper berry in your Mockapolitan, you can be sure that every ingredient has been balanced with love, but not with alcohol.
