Let’s Make an Orange Cherry Mocktail!

To make this pretty drink, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup of orange juice (about 3-4 oranges)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • one orange, chopped into pieces
  • 2 maraschino cherries
  • 2 Fresh mint leaves plus more for garnishing
  • Ice cubes

Place some ice cubes into a cocktail shaker with a strainer and add 2 mint leaves, the orange juice, lemon juice and sugar.  Shake well to make the mint leaves release their flavor into the drink.  

Place more ice into glasses and pour out the orange lemon mixture, being sure to strain the mint leaves out of the drink. You can use a high ball glass for a tall drink.Orange Cherry Mocktail

Or a shorter snifter shaped glass to really get the look of the fruit showing. Cut the orange into small pieces and add it to the drink.  Finally, top with two maraschino cherries on a toothpick and a sprig of fresh mint.Add some fresh oranges to your Orange Cherry Mocktail

Enjoy! The orange pieces (and cherries) make a nice sweet treat to eat when the drink is finished. The mint adds a lovely flavor to the fruit, while making a nice ending to the mocktail.Orange Cherry Mocktail
