Have you been trying to reconsider your relationship with alcohol in 2022?
We all love a tipple, and whether you consider yourself to be a die-hard G&T fan, a sangria connoisseur, a whiskey bandit or a wine aficionado, it can be seriously difficult to cut down your alcohol intake - especially when we all have so much to celebrate! Between birthdays, anniversaries, promotions, weekly catch-ups with friends, and now Easter, there are always a million things going on and a million ‘reasons’ to have a drink.
But this Easter, why not try experimenting with some scrumptious non-alcoholic Easter drink recipes? Yummy mocktails are the perfect way to still enjoy a delicious fancy frolicking beverage, while skipping the extra calories, hangovers and hangxiety that often come with alcohol.
With this in mind, we’ve scoured the globe to collate 10 of our favourite non-alcoholic Easter drink recipes (including some using our exquisite range of alcohol-free spirits), so you can have the freedom to drink exactly how you want to this Easter!
Nothing says sophisticated Easter celebration like a sleek caffeinated beverage with a kick of salty sweetness. Paired perfectly with a caramel slice or, let’s be honest, approximately 157 Easter eggs.
This deliciously fresh beverage combines the tartness of lemon and grapefruit with the sweetness of honey and ginger ale for a sparkling explosion of taste. Perfect for day festivities to celebrate Easter, it can be topped with a twig of thyme for a tantalising twist.
This mocktail is a non-alcoholic twist on the delicious traditional Moscow Mule. It’s still spicy, tasty and perfect for Easter - the only difference is the vodka has been replaced with soda water for a refreshing addition!
The Shirley Temple is an absolute classic, combining ginger ale, orange juice, grenadine and a maraschino cherry to top it all off. Dan Murphy’s have upped the ante with this non-alcoholic version of sweet, sweet goodness, creating a beautiful mocktail that’s bound to impress any sober Easter guest.
For the refined non-alcoholic, this pure Kentucky thoroughbred has forged its path from the New York Waldorf Astoria in the late 1800s, all the way to your Easter table. The post-prohibition drink of choice, Lyre’s American Malt, sugar syrup and bitters combine for a smooth, simple and extremely palate-pleasing tipple, perfect for post-dinner food comas.
Perfect for an alcohol-free Easter (as well as baby showers, bridal showers, Mother’s Day brunch or kitchen teas), this mocktail combines the refreshing and unique flavours of grapefruit and rosemary to create a taste profile your Easter guests are unlikely to have ever sampled before. Fresh and simple, the sweet and sour taste will leave your guests wanting more… and more and more and more!
The Clover Club is an absolute classic; and in our opinion, it has every right to be. Cementing itself as an ideal non-alcoholic Easter mocktail, the combination of egg whites, raspberry syrup and fresh raspberries (as well as Lyre’s Dry London Spirit) creates a fruity treat fit for the Easter bunny and all of his comrades.
This sweet-as-pie Peaches and Cream Punch is perfect for an Easter brunch, lunch or afternoon tea (as well as for any young chaps or ladies attending the ‘do). Combining vanilla ice cream, Sprite, and frozen peaches, it’s the ultimate decadent Easter treat. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it!
For those without the affluence for a quick jaunt to the arctic like me, nothing chills the frills like a Bianco Spritz by the pool. A combination of Lyre’s Orange Sec and Lyre’s Aperitif Dry paired with tonic water, cucumber and lemon slices as well as a mint sprig to finish. Too cool!
Have you seen the well to do, up and down Park Avenue with this beverage in their mitts? Take Dry London Spirit, add Italian Orange then drizzle with soda, and you too will be Puttin’ on the Spritz. But, it’s even better because it’s in a pitcher.
Simple and delicious, this spritz can take the dip with either tonic, soda water or lemonade for a sweeter finish. In this liquid kitchen it’s your time to shine. Top with a lemon wheel and berry of choice…Mwah, chef’s kiss!
