Alcohol free recipes for all

Our Australian native botanical mixers are delicious enjoyed with still or sparkling water, with soda, tonic, lemonade or seltzer. They keep hydrated those who rarely drink because they don't like "plain tasteless" water. They are a great alternative for those who don't drink alcohol. So they can be enjoyed by the entire family, young and adults alike.

Violet & Gold's botanical mixers also elevate hot milk, milk or mylk tea, smoothie and thick shakes, and even coffee.

Here are a few drink ideas. Feel free to develop your own mocktails, post them on social and tag @violetandgold.sydney !

 

Banana smoothie with a kick

Banana smoothies are both refreshing and filling. We add a few millilitres of our Tasmanian pepper mixer for an additional kick.

   
 

Ingredients for 2 serves

Coconut mylk
1 teaspoon V&G's Tasmanian Pepper mixer
1 large or 2 small bananas
ice cubes

HOW TO PREPARE

  • Fill a blender with ice cubes, banana pieces, coconut mylk and Tasmanian Pepper mixer. [I like my smoothies thick, my hubby runnier, so I tend to serve myself first, then add more mylk for him.]
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Taste. Add more mylk and Tasmanian mixer if you wish a stronger kick.
  • Strain into tall glasses. Enjoy!

Alcohol free pastis

A taste of French Provence from your sofa. Who would ask for more?

Menthe à l'eau

"Menthe à l'eau" is a staple in French cafés. It basically means "mint in water" and can be translated as "peppermint cordial". With its eucalyptus and mint flavours, Violet & Gold's peppermint gum mixer is the ideal replacement in this refreshing mocktail.

20 ml V&G's Peppermint gum mixer
200 to 250ml chilled mineral water
fresh mint sprigs to garnish

HOW TO PREPARE

  • Pour mineral water in two glasses.
  • Add the mixer. Stir. Taste and add more water / more mixer depending of your taste.
  • Add a mint sprig to decorate. Enjoy!

 

Diabolo fraise

Another staple of cafés in France, the Diabolo fraise is a traditional French mocktail created in 1920. It is prepared with strawberry cordial and lemonade. We replaced the strawberry cordial with our Strawberry and Tasmanian pepper mixer to bring an Aussie touch.

   
 

Ingredients for 2 serves

20 ml V&G's Anise myrtle mixer
250ml chilled lemonade or sparkling water
2 lemon wedges and 2 small strawberries to garnish
Ice cubes

HOW TO PREPARE

  • Pour the sparkling water or the lemonade in two long drink glasses.
  • Add the mixer. Stir. Taste and add more water / more mixer depending of your taste.
  • Add a few ice cubes and garnish with the strawberry and the lemon wedge. Enjoy!


Wattleccino

We affectionally call it wattleccino, but you could call it wattle milk. It is a delicious winter warmer for those who enjoy silky drinks.

   
 

Ingredients for 1 serve

10 to 15 ml V&G's wattleseed mixer
200ml warm / hot vegetal mylk

HOW TO PREPARE

  • Warm your vegetal mylk ( I like the silkiness of soy, but it works well with almond mylk as well) and pour in a mug.
  • Add the 10 ml mixer and stir. Taste and add more mixer depending of your taste.
  • Grab a good book and enjoy!
