PINEAPPLE GINGER BEER MOCKTAIL
The benefits of curating a personal ingestible herbal ritual can be seemingly endless: stress management, better sleep, enhanced mental focus, to name a few. So it’s no wonder that many of us are constantly exploring ways to integrate herbal formulas and protocols into our daily routines. While it’s super simple to take herbals and adaptogenic herbs on their own, Sophia often challenges herself to incorporate them into favorite recipes. This Pineapple Ginger Beer Mocktail is one of Sophia’s staples. And the addition of Anima Mundi’s Spirit Elixir seemed like a no-brainer, heightening the vibes of this recipe x 1,000, and making it taste DELICIOUS!
1 oz pineapple puree
1 orange, juiced
½ lime, juiced
1 oz Fever Tree Brand ginger beer (or other high quality brand)
1 tbsp Goji berries
1/2 tsp hibiscus leaves
2 pieces candied ginger
1-2 orange slices
To make pineapple puree, mix one or two cups of frozen pineapple with ½ cup of water in high-powered blender. Mixture should be thick — no need to strain. Store pineapple puree in the refrigerator for up to one week.
To make cocktail: Place ice in a tumbler or Collins glass. Add 1 oz pineapple puree, juice of one orange, juice of half a lime, and 1-2 oz of Anima Mundi Spirit Elixir. Stir mixture for 10-15 seconds. Top drink off with ginger beer. For garnish, lace a toothpick with a slice of orange, and 2 pieces of candied ginger.
To finish cocktail, top with Goji berries, hibiscus leaves, and threaded orange and candied ginger toothpick. This recipe makes one mocktail, so simply multiply the ingredients for more servings.
**Note — You could also replace ginger beer with your favorite soda water.
