This Pineapple Ginger Beer Mocktail recipe is perfect for anyone wanting a refreshing, non-alcoholic drink. It’s easy to make and full of tropical flavors.

Ideal for hot summer days or casual gatherings, this mocktail combines sweet pineapple juice with bubbly ginger beer and lime.

This delicious drink is a great non-alcoholic version of a moscow mule which traditionally uses vodka with ginger beer. But, for many reasons, many of us now prefer a good mocktail as opposed to an alcoholic beverage.

Ginger Mocktail Ingredients

  • Pineapple juice adds natural sweetness and a tropical flavor. It is rich in vitamins and enzymes. You can use fresh juice or canned. Try to find versions without any added sugar.
  • Fresh lime juice provides a tangy, zesty taste and a burst of freshness and is rich in vitamin C.
  • Chilled ginger beer (non-alcoholic) adds a spicy kick and carbonation, enhancing the drink’s refreshing quality. Look for spicy ginger beer without alcohol at your local grocery store.
  • Ice cubes keep the mocktail chilled and refreshing.

Recipe Substitutions

  • If you can’t find non-alcoholic ginger beer, you can use ginger ale, but it will be less spicy.
  • If lime juice is unavailable, fresh lemon juice can be used as a substitute, though it will slightly alter the flavor.
  • For a lighter option, you can replace half of the ginger beer with sparkling water to reduce the sweetness and spice.
  • If fresh pineapple juice is not available, you can blend frozen pineapple chunks with a bit of water to create a juice-like consistency.

Recipe Tips

  • Use Fresh Ingredients: Freshly squeezed lime juice and fresh pineapple juice will give the best flavor. Avoid canned or bottled juices with added sugars or preservatives.
  • Chill All Ingredients: Ensure the ginger beer and juices are well-chilled before mixing. This helps maintain the drink’s refreshing quality and keeps it fizzy.
  • Gentle Stirring: When adding the ginger beer, stir gently to preserve its carbonation. Vigorous stirring can make the drink go flat.
  • Adjust Sweetness: Taste the mixture before serving. If it’s too tart, add a small amount of honey or agave syrup to balance the flavors.
  • Presentation Matters: Garnish each glass with a slice of lime and a wedge of pineapple for a visually appealing drink. You can also add a sprig of mint for extra freshness.
  • Serve Immediately: This mocktail is best enjoyed fresh to maintain its effervescence and vibrant flavors. Avoid letting it sit for too long before serving.

Recipe FAQs
