This sugar-free, non-alcoholic Grapefruit Ginger Mocktail is a natural 3-ingredient refreshing drink for adults and kids alike!
Here’s a Grapefruit Ginger Mocktail recipe for you today, and I know you’re going to love it!
Do you want to avoid sugar, but don’t want to use artificial sweeteners like aspartame or sucralose? While it’s always better for your health to limit or avoid sweetened beverages, occasionally a chilled bevvie is welcome.
Especially when everyone else is having a glass of wine or beer!
I made this mocktail for Denis, who is avoiding both sugar and alcohol completely as he is undergoing cancer treatments. He gave it a two thumbs up!
We recently discovered Zevia, a brand of soft drinks naturally sweetened with Stevia. While sodas are rare in our home, I decided to try this one for a special occasion. (This is not a sponsored post. I have no affiliation with the company.) While it has a slight aftertaste, typical of stevia, it wasn’t offensive at all. It added the necessary sparkle this Grapefruit Ginger Mocktail needs.
This is a 3-ingredient mocktail recipe!
Pure pink grapefruit juice, organic ginger juice, and ginger ale naturally sweetened with Stevia are all you need to make this crisp, cool mocktail. It’s a little tart, a little sweet and it has a bit of a kick from the ginger. Definitely a keeper recipe.
Where can I find ginger juice?
I didn’t know there was such a thing as organic ginger juice until my daughter enlightened me. I’ve been using a splash of it here and there in all kinds of recipes ever since. It’s available in supermarkets and from Amazon. It’s ideal in this drink, because it eliminates the need to make a homemade ginger sugar syrup.
How to make a Sugar-Free Grapefruit Ginger Mocktail
- Add equal parts of pure grapefruit juice and ginger ale to a chilled glass.
- Add a splash or two of organic ginger syrup. Taste and use more or less to your liking.
- Garnish with a wedge of pink grapefruit or Cara Cara orange and serve.
What’s the difference between ginger ale and ginger beer?
Sometimes citrus cocktails like this one are made with ginger beer. Both ginger ale and ginger beer are non-alcoholic, but they don’t taste the same. Ginger beer has been fermented, while ginger ale is made by adding ginger to carbonated water. Ginger beer has a stronger taste than ginger ale. You can read more about the differences here.
Of course, if you’re not avoiding sugar in your diet, you can use regular ginger ale. However you make it, I hope you like it as much as we do! Cheers!
