Easter is a bit later than normal this year, putting it squarely in the middle of spring. If you are planning a family lunch or dinner for Easter, this double color Easter mocktail is so fun for kids. They will have their own special drink, and it’s very easy to make. It’s made with a small amount of strawberry syrup and blueberry soda, as well as a small slice of mango. Load it up with ice if you want to dilute it somewhat.
When serving, be sure to use a clear cup so the double color effect can completely be seen. These acrylic cups sold on Amazon would be a great option if you don’t want to use glass.
This recipe could be used with other syrup and soda flavors, or instead of soda, you could use a carbonated water. Just be sure that you choose spring colors for the syrup so that it still looks like a fun Easter/spring drink.
Ingredients for the Double Color Easter Mocktail (per glass)
- 1-ounce strawberry syrup (we used Torani)
- 2 ounces pink lemonade soda (we used Fentimans)
- 3 ounces blueberry or berry lemonade soda (we used Jones Berry Lemonade)
- 1 slice of mango sliced, for garnish
Directions for the Double Color Easter Mocktail
In a measuring cup mix together 1 ounce of strawberry syrup and 2 ounces of pink lemonade soda, pour this mixture into the bottom of a cocktail glass.
Fill the glass with ice. Use a good amount of ice if you want to dilute the drink.
- Hold a tablespoon just over the ice and pour blueberry soda slowly over the tablespoon. The soda will be suspended over the strawberry syrup and pink lemonade mixture. The key is to do this slowly.
- Garnish with a thin slice of ripe mango on a cocktail stick. If the kids are too young for a cocktail stick, just hang the mango over the edge, or suspend it on a piece of ice.
- Serve with your Easter meal.
