Ingredients Used In Mocktails

A mocktail is a mixture of one or more liquids with other ingredients, prepared in a specific manner, presented attractively in different glassware with garnish to add to the eye appeal. Usually a major ingredient predominates and other ite ms complement the colours and flavour. Some of the ingredients used in making mocktails include: (i) ice: The key ingredient used to chill the glass, chill the drink, dilute the drink, fill up the glass and sometimes all of the above, different form of ice cubes, f lakes, made from good source of water are used. Ice should never be reused. Ne ver use wet ice for making or chilling the drink (ii) Carbonated drinks: This includes soda, cola, ginger ale, tonic, 7 up etc. They are usually freshly drawn, kept chilled and used to fizz up the drink.

(iii) fruit juices: Fresh juices always give the best taste and flavour. However, care should be ta ken that they are stored well chilled and used within their limited shelf life. To ensure consistency some barmen prefer readymade mixes which are fresh juices packed in tetra packs to add shelf value. (iv) Dairy Products: Dairy products include milk, cream, ice creams, and eggs etc. d to get spoiled by bacteria. They are stored chilled. (v) fruits and other garnishes: Most good bars shall have a large selection of fruits cut and prepared in differ ent shapes to be used as garnishes. Wheels, half wheels, wedges, curls mostly of citrus fruits are all kept ready. Other garnishes may be cherries, stuffed oliv es, pickled onions, pineapple chunks, celery sticks etc. Garnishes: These are the edible or non-edible products used to decorate a drink and the gla ss making it more appealing and presentable to the eye. Edible Garnish: These are items such as cut fruits, slices or spirals of lemon, sweet lime, pine apple, orange; cherry, etc. These can be consumed before, during or after the mo cktail is consumed. Non Edible Garnish: All of these ten

These are fancy items used to decorate the glass and are not to be consumed, mad e either of food grade plastic or glass which are disposable in nature. Example: Fancy umbrella. Glasses used also varies according to the consistency and the volume of a drink like if the drink is thick in consistency then the glass used has less intake; a nd for thin or liquid consistency drinks glasses are long and straight.

(vi) sugar syrup: Granulated sugar does not mix quickly with liquids hence a supply of sugar syrup refrigerated is always kept in handy. (vii) other ingredients: Condiments like tobacco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, spices like pepper nu tmeg cinnamon bitters etc are also kept ready.

Methods of Making Mocktails

There are four basic methods of mixing mocktails. (i) Builds: In this method, drinks are added step by step in the glass in which the drink is to be served the ingredients are floated one on top of other taking advantage o f difference in viscosity of the liquids (ii) Stirred Drinks: Here the ingredients are mixed by stirring them with ice in a mixing glass and s training the mixture into a chilled serving glass. Ingredients that blend easil y are stirred. (iii) Shaken Drinks: In this method the ingredients are mixed by shaking them by hand in special shak ers. Usually ingredients that do not readily mix like sugar, cream, egg and frui t juices are shaken before being strained into cocktail glasses. (iv) Blended drinks: This is made using electrical blenders. Most drinks that are shaken can also be blended. However, drinks incorporating solid foods like ice, ice cream, fruits need to be always blended.
