Mixed Mocktails

MIXING MOCKTAILS WITH DRNK

DRNK provides two mocktail options ready-to-drink whenever you are, just chill and serve! Looking to spruce up your mocktail offering? We’ve curated some mixes that add a little flavour and colour to your next DRNK. The recipes and videos are below, so get mixing and enjoy!

We live in a world where convenience is paramount in everything we do, even how we eat and drink. Our DRNKs are in the RTD category meaning “ready-to-drink”. And with premiumization1 (an increased focus on flavor, high-quality ingredients and more appealing packaging that offer an elevated beverage experience), consumers can have quality and convenience in one.

We’ve been experimenting with our mocktails to create some fun and tasty mixes for that next dinner party, backyard BBQ, or just for fun. DRNK makes mixing mocktails easy, they taste great, and they’re still low sugar and low calorie!

Our Mixologist Has Already Done the Hard Work!

The term “mixology” in cocktail culture refers to someone who studies the history of mixed drinks, has a rich appreciation of the ingredients and techniques used, and regularly creates new and innovative mixed drinks.2 These individuals are the curators of many popular cocktails, and now, mocktails.

Our recipes were handcrafted by our expert mixologist, who not only understands the cocktails that we model our drinks after but has the knowledge and expertise to create the same flavour profiles, without the alcohol!

Having the base (DRNK) makes these recipes a lot easier as you are going to be starting with a flavourful and true-to-taste base of either our refreshing Mojito or our Mule with a kick!

Mixing Mocktails with DRNK – What You’ll Need

In our mini-series, we mixed up 5 different variations.

  • A fresh take on DRNK’s Classic Mojito
  • Blackberry Mule
  • Strawberry Mojito
  • Blackberry Mojito
  • Strawberry Mule

What will you need?

  • Cocktail Shaker – There are two options, one that comes with the lid, or one where you have to utilize a pint glass with it, or…the makeshift cocktail shaker when you don’t have one handy (I’ve used a protein shaker cup before)
  • Bar Spoon – a spoon with an extra long shaft (or another object that can fit the height of your glass)
  • Muddler – A wooden or stainless steel stick used to mash fresh produce

A Fresh Take on DRNK’s Classic Mojito This one is quick and easy, but definitely adds some extra freshness and looks like it belongs on a beach🏖️.
