A Refreshing Valentine’s Day Mocktail

Cranberry Rosemary Mocktail Brings out the Valentine’s Day Romance

There’s the glass of Champagne before the nice dinner  and then there’s some chocolate to savor. A toast on Valentine’s Day is in order when you’re spending it with a loved one.

But if you’re pregnant or someone who simply doesn’t (or can’t) drink, worry not! Mocktails are all the craze these days.

The iSi Creative Whip can help you come up with some tasty, fizzy options. Below is a recipe for a refreshing cranberry and rosemary mocktail. But the options are endless. You no longer have to stick to plain water or unhealthy, sugar-laced sodas.

Even better, the new wave of mocktails are just as creative as any cocktail. They can be sweet and herbal or bitter and fruity all at the same time. Cheers!

FIZZY CRANBERRY-ROSEMARY MOCKTAIL
Ingredients for 1 pint Creative Whip
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 cup cranberry juice
A few sprigs of fresh rosemary

In a saucepan, bring water to a light simmer before adding the sugar. Stir well until the sugar is dissolved. Add the lime juice and a rosemary sprig to infuse the sugar water. Let simmer for one minute and take off heat to cool. Refrigerate until needed. When cool, combine with cranberry juice to taste and pour into a 1 pint Creative Whip. Screw on an iSi soda charger and shake vigorously.

To serve:
Dispense the drink into a glass with ice and garnish with a rosemary sprig. Serve immediately.
