"Mocktail" (Nonalcoholic) Appletini

It was my turn to plan our date night and I made a couple fun "mocktails"! I made these appletinis before dinner and strawberry daiquiris after dinner. (That recipe coming soon.) I'll post the instructions to make simple syrup first. You'll need it for this recipe and lots of other drink recipes.

Simple Syrup

1 part sugar
1 part water
Bring water to a boil. Dissolve sugar in. Once sugar is completely dissolved, remove pan from heat. Allow to cool enough to place in a resealable container and refrigerate until completely cool before making drinks.

Nonalcoholic Appletini

Recipe from

1 oz. lemon juice
8 oz. apple juice
2 oz. simple syrup
Fill cocktail shaker with ice. Add all ingredients. Shake well. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with an apple slice. If you don't have a cocktail shaker, stir everything in a bowl of ice, and pull the ice out before serving.

  1. What a fun idea! I am proud of you for having date night... we are not very good at that. I'm glad you liked the Homestyle Ribs, too. I haven't made them for awhile and what with all the basketball right now, I need to! Mindy (one of The Sisters Cafe sisters)
