help - mocktails needed :s

saresw Jan 26, 2012 06:39 PM

Hi all,

I'm looking for a mocktail idea/recipe. I'm hors d'oeuvre for an event at my school, but my chef asked me to do a 'mocktail' as well. I've decided to make a balsamic roasted veg crostini-type thing (playing around with many ideas still!) and I want something light to compliment it.

Any ideas would help :)

    A good source of Mocktail recipes is the LCBO website.. there are 326 listed!

      N/A Sangria should stand up to those roasted vegetables, this is just one way of making it, but thought you could use the idea

        This NYTimes article is a keeper. While aimed at pregnant ladies, it certainly works for anyone looking for a delicious mocktail idea.

          I'm stuck on the pairing with roasted veggies. Maybe a sparkling lemonade with a sprig of thyme and sprig of rosemary?

            or apple based with those herbs... or ginger?

            This site looks good:
            Saw one with pear, too, that might compliment roasted vegetables.

              I can give you a lot of ideas, but an idea of what you'd prefer to work with would help. In which direction are you hoping to head? Berries? Citrus? Sweet? Tart?
