Mother’s Day is about here and what would be better than giving her something that she can use and love? Silver Grade Cocktail Shaker is a perfect gift for those mamas who like adult and adult-like beverages.
I don’t personally drink alcohol, not because of beliefs but because they don’t agree with me. I do, however like fruity, fun mocktails. A mocktail is a cocktail beverage without alcohol. There are so many recipes out there that contain no alcohol and would be perfect for any brunch, lunch or dinner.
I was trying out my Silver Grade Cocktail Shaker and found it to be easier than I thought it would be. There was a recipe that contained lots of different juices combined with alcohol. I didn’t think I’d like that, so i sat down and asked myself what juices do I like and would they go together to make a lovely mocktail.
Only one way to find out! Pouring a half cup of orange juice, a half cup of apple juice and a half cup of cranapple juice into the shaker, I added lots of ice. This is the whole point of a shaker is to make the beverage COLD. Put the lid on the shaker and shake away!
It’s actually fun to play bartender.
I poured my concoction into my wine glass (I prefer the stemless variety) and stepped back to look at it. It didn’t look bad at all. It smelled good, like citrus. Then I added about a half a cup of lemon-lime sparkling soda to my glass. The garnish was super easy – a slice of orange to hang on the rim.
My teenage daughter was taking all this in while I experimented. She helped cut the orange. She loved it and said that it was the drink for Sunday morning breakfast. It really did have that morning feel to it. Tangy and fruity, this drink will work for brunches or baby showers.
The Silver Grade Cocktail Shaker comes with drink spouts and measuring devices. It’s a complete kit for an at-home bar or as just an accessory to use at parties.
