What You’ll Love About Ginger Beer Mocktail

  • Bright flavors
  • Lightly sweet
  • Spicy notes from ginger
  • Made with simple and fresh ingredients
  • Easy and ready in minutes
  • Perfect mocktail if you don’t want to drink

Ingredients

  • Mint – Use fresh mint leaves for best flavor.
  • Lime juice – Use fresh juice for best flavor.
  • Simple syrup – This will help balance out the lime juice, but feel free to adjust to your preferences or omit entirely if you prefer. You can make your own with a 1:1 sugar to water ratio (boil until sugar is dissolved) or buy it ready to pour. Start with a splash and taste to find your perfect amount.
  • Pineapple juice – Use 100% pineapple juice for best flavor.
  • Ginger beer – Use a high-quality ginger beer for best flavor. I like Fever-Tree ginger beer or Reed’s, but there are a lot of different brands out there! You want the strong ginger flavor for this ginger mocktail, so beer is recommended over ginger ale.
  • Garnish – Dehydrated pineapple, fresh mint leaves

FAQs

Can you get a non-alcoholic ginger beer?

Yes! Ginger beer, while it sounds like an alcoholic beverage, it is actually non-alcoholic. Double check the label to be sure!

Are ginger beer and ginger ale the same thing?

No, ginger beer and ginger ale are slightly different, but very similar drinks. Ginger beer has a much strong ginger flavor, making it great in mocktails, and ginger ale has a more subtle ginger flavor.

Can children drink ginger ale?

Yes, ginger ale is essentially a ginger-flavored soda. There is no alcohol in ginger ale.

Is this a Moscow mule mocktail?

No, it’s not exactly a virgin Moscow mule, but it is very similar and definitely a delicious drink! A traditional Moscow mule is made with vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer, often served in a copper mug. The pineapple juice in this mocktail version gives it a bit of a different sweetness and adds to the complex flavor.

Storage Instructions

This simple ginger beer mocktail is best served immediately, but if you would like to prep some of it ahead, you can make the simple syrup ahead!
