The Grinch Christmas Mocktail

This article contains advertising.

Christmas, the time of great feasts. At Christmas time, we are constantly on the go and meet family, friends and colleagues. Annual closings, Christmas markets and celebrations sometimes leave little time and space for reflection, and sometimes the time before and around Christmas even degenerates into stress. At Christmas, we eat and drink considerably more than usual, and a feeling of sluggishness and headache quickly sets in, if we drank too much mulled wine the night before. Mindful drinking with non-alcoholic cocktails is a form of conscious consumption that is worthwhile, not least because of the conscious renunciation. Less is sometimes more and your body will thank you for the alcohol-free mocktail time out.

Alcohol-free cocktails for Christmas

I have created my alcohol-free Grinch Christmas cocktail exactly for these time outs for you. The bad-tempered Grinch surely knows each of you, but he has acted as a namesake for my Christmas mocktail recipe for two reasons. First, my mocktail ensures that you wake up the next day relaxed without a hangover and can invest your energy in quality time rather than regeneration. Second, my non-alcoholic mocktail looks just as green as the Grinch himself, only he doesn't have the hairy coat. Don't get me wrong, because I'm certainly a fan of good drinks and quality cocktails, but some conscious downtime is good for me at times, too, because who among us can go all the way through December?

Kale, apples & spices

These are the protagonists for this non-alcoholic cocktail recipe. Vitamins, color and especially taste are the characteristics of these three. I wanted to create a simple recipe with few ingredients that also brings the taste of Christmas to your palate. Sure, you are eating and drinking with your eye too, so my mocktail should also be an eye-catcher, which also gets along without any decoration frills. As always, my recipe should be more of an inspiration for you and not a fixed instruction. For example, you don't like all spices, then swap cinnamon for cardamom or leave out anise altogether. You like your mocktails rather sparkling, no problem, just fill up the mocktail with ginger beer. You see, what you like best is always allowed. So, enjoy the Christmas season and maybe even temporarily with non-alcoholic cocktails, better yet with my non-alcoholic Grinch Christmas Mocktail.

Another delicious non-alcoholic cocktail idea is my Oriental Pomegranate Mocktail so you can vary a bit!

The Grinch Christmas Mocktail

2 Persons15 Minutes

  • 75 g Plucked Kale
  • 300 ml Water
  • 3 g Salt
  • 15 g Agave Syrup
  • 250 g Red Apples
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 4 Allspice Seeds
  • 1 Star Anise
  • 4 Cloves
  • 150 ml Seedlip Spice 94

For my alcoholic-free Christmas cocktail, first pluck the kale from the stem and blanch it in the water seasoned with salt and agave syrup for 1 minute. Then rinse the kale in ice water, reserving the blanching water. Peel the apples, cut them into quarters and core them. Add the apple peels to the blanching water with the spices. Now simmer on low heat for 5 minutes and let steep until cool. Now remove the kale from the ice water, squeezing it properly. Put the kale together with the apples and the strained spice stock into a kitchen blender. Puree everything finely and then strain it through a cloth to make the kale stock nice and clear. Mix the kale stock in a shaker with ice cubes and the Seedlip for 15 seconds and serve in pre-chilled glasses.
