Halloween is around the corner, which means Fall festivals & holiday parties with (or without) your little ones. I’ve come up with a sweet mocktail drink that you can serve at your next holiday gathering.
Just this morning, I picked up a carton of Mongibello Juice, which is currently on sale at Bristol Farms. For those who live in the Valley, there is a new Bristol Farms store in Woodland Hills. It opened one year ago (November 2017) & it is super nice. Their produce area & baked goods section is to die for, but I digress.
All Bristol Farms locations have the Mongibello Juice, so I suggest you pick a carton up while it is on sale! What makes Mongibello Juice so unique? Here are some fun facts:
- Mongibello Juice is made with 100% fresh squeezed blood orange juice from Sicily.
- The blood oranges are grown on the edge of the Mt. Etna volcano which is a climate that allows blood oranges to flourish.
- These blood oranges are grown, then freshly squeezed, then frozen & packed right in Sicily.
- Mongibello Juice has a shelf life of 3 years frozen and 60 days from thawing. So it is always fresh!
I know in previous years, Halloween is generally warm in the LA area. So instead of a hot apple cider, I’m more likely to serve up something cold to drink.
Halloween Blood Orange Mocktail
Prep time: Less than 10 minutes
Serves: 2 (You’ll have to double or triple the recipe for large gatherings.)
Mongibello 100% Blood Orange Juice
Club soda (you can substitute with seltzer water or sparkling mineral water)
Sweetener like honey, agave or sugar (optional – add to taste)
Put ice cubes in a glass.
Add 1 cup Mongibello Juice.
Mix in 1 cup club soda (I used peach flavored seltzer water).
Add in sweetener (optional).
Garnish with mint leaves.
Since I made my drink with peach flavored seltzer water, I didn’t add any sweetener & it tasted delicious as is! I know some folks really like to have sweet drinks, so that’s why I included the note about adding sugar or agave to taste. For those who want more “kick” to their drink, you can change this from a mocktail to a cocktail by using vodka instead of the club soda.
This mocktail drink is sure to please the little ghosts & goblins in your life!
