Cocktail of the week: Virgin Sunrise

There’s nothing like a good old cocktail to put a pep in your step! For those who do not drink alcohol for whatever reason but appreciate mixed drinks, this simple mocktail loses the booze but not the flavour! It has fast become a personal favourite and is in fact one of the only ways I will drink my morning orange juice because it adds depth to an otherwise ordinary fruit juice. ┬áHere’s my gift to you this fine day:


4 Ounces Orange Juice

1 thick slice of pineapple, cubed

2 large passion fruits

1/2 ounce grenadine syrup

Orange slice for garnish


Put the pineapple cubes in a glass and muddle

Cut the passion fruits in half then empty over the pineapple

Drop in a few cubes of ice into the glass then fill with orange juice

Pour the grenadine over the juice where it will sink to the bottom

PS: If you’re feeling lucky or like it alcoholic, add a shot of tequila, stir and enjoy (never mind the fact that it’s called a ‘sunrise’ and hence you’ll probably be sipping it in the morning. Hey, I’ll just assume you’re on vacation)!
