Amélie’s Citrus Blush

I was at home taking care of my daughter the other day. She had a could and couldn't go to nursery. When you have a cold what could be better then a vitamin C injection from freshly squeezed citrus juice. To make it a bit more exciting I decided to compose a new non-alcoholic cocktail (mocktail) recipe. It turned out a really nice and refreshing drink with a lovely orange colour.


  • 2 shots freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 shot freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 1/16 shot pomegranate (grenadine) syrup
  • 3 dashes Fee Brothers orange bitters

Pour all ingredients over crushed ice in an old-fashioned glass and churn. Top up with ice and churn some more. Make sure the glass is filled with crushed ice. Decorate with a grapefruit zest. Serve with straws.

My daughter and I loved it as did the rest of my family. Next test will be how it holds up at our next cocktail party.
