VALENTINE MOCKTAIL INGREDIENTS
To make a Valentine-red mocktail, you need to use either a red base (blood orange juice, cranberry juice, cherry or raspberry soda) or a red-colored flavor such as grenadine or strawberry purée)—or both.
Blend the juice and soda in proportions you prefer. If it isn’t red enough, add one of the red-colored flavors. Taste, add some citrus juice to pick up the flavor, and select a garnish.
The Pomegranate Refresher can be made with tequila, or as a mocktail with regular or diet 7-UP or Sprite.
