The base for my mocktail recipe comes from a classic Sour. By that, I do not mean to use lemon juice and sweeten it with sugar, no I mean the one with fresh egg white to smoothen out the acid. My oldest son (11 years) likes to drink a mocktail from time to time, to leave a grown up impression and he somehow loves rose water in drinks. Do not ask me why, but anyways since rose water is used a lot in Oriental cooking, this was my starting point of creating.
Pomegranate was added quite fast but did not make the drink as a whole and I needed to add a little finesse. I grabbed a bottle of non alcoholic liquid, a bit of lemon and came closer to the point, when one could call it a drink. Me, being a fan of a good Sour, immediately thought of tweaking it into that direction and after a little testing the result is quite pleasing, I got to admit. Quickly taking a few photos, my son and I said cheers and sipped our mocktail creation with great pleasure.
I hope you will too.
