Simple Mocktail Recipes | Passion Fruit Martini

Here at Stanwell House hotel, we’re a big fan of mocktail alternatives. If you’re looking for simple mocktail recipes this Dry January, why not opt for a fruity martini?

Fruity and flavourful, this convincing mocktail is very easy to make. Simply cut the passion fruit and place all its seeds into a cocktail shaker. Add passion fruit syrup, cloudy apple juice, lime juice and vanilla extract, alongside ice.

Simple Mocktail Recipes | Negroni Mocktail 

Did you know that you can enjoy a negroni cocktail without alcohol? 

Another one of our favourite simple mocktail recipes is the ‘NAgroni’ (Non-Alcoholic negroni). Bold and delicious, this quintessential aperitif tastes just as good as the beloved original.

Emulating the classic Negroni cocktail in both character and style, this alcohol-free alternative is a must-try! 


Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri 

Few mocktails compare to the virgin strawberry daiquiri.

Fruity and versatile, the strawberry daiquiri is the perfect way to impress your friends this Dry January.

To make this strawberry sensation, blend tonic water or Sprite with frozen strawberries, lime juice and ice. For a ‘virgin’ twist on a much-loved classic, all you have to do is remove the rum. 

Depending on your preferences, this recipe can also be easily worked into another variation. If strawberry isn’t your thing, we’d recommend opting for a banana, mango, or pineapple alternative.
