IkPassers' favorite alternative drinks
Three IkPas participants shared their favorite non-alcoholic drink with us via email. Because also, or especially, during your dry trip you need a nice replacement. We also received many beautiful recipes on Facebook. Try them out and who knows, you might become as addicted as the creative participants who shared the recipe. Cheers!
- Wash the basil leaves, shake them dry and put them in a carafe. Keep a few leaves aside for garnish.
- Wash the cucumber and cut it into thin thin slices. Add the cucumber to the basil leaves.
- Wash and halve the plums, remove the pit and cut the plums into wedges. Wash and halve the apple, remove the core and cut the apple into fine slices. Put the sliced fruit in the carafe as well.
- Top up with grape and apple juice and let it steep in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
- Remove the carafe from the fridge, pour the mocktail with a few ice cubes and the fruit pieces into 4 glasses, garnish with the fresh basil and serve. Tip: add a little bit of sprite if you want.
Elly Kwakkelstein enjoys 'her' Everleaf with ice cream and ginger ale
My favorite drink at the moment is Everleaf with ice and ginger ale. Everleaf is an alcohol-free aperitif made from 18 herbs!
-Long drink glass with 1/4 Everleaf
- Top up with 3/4 ginger ale (I use the variant without sugar).
Tip: you can also make it with tonic, but I like it better with ginger ale.
Yvonne Hendriks: “This non-alcoholic sangria is just as tasty as the real one”
I served this sangria on New Year's Eve and it was a great success! Even the alcohol drinkers switched to my non-alcoholic sangria.
