Cinderella Mocktail

Until recently, I’d never heard of a Cinderella mocktail.  I was intrigued by the blend of citrus juices and pineapple juice–and especially the addition of grenadine and Angostura bitters.  Plus, I wanted to try a recipe with the new bottle of Angostura bitters in the pantry, which I’d never tasted before.  I hope you’ll enjoy this drink as much as I did!

A Cinderella mocktail is made from a variety of citrus juices mixed with pineapple juice, grenadine, and often Angostura bitters.  For this recipe, I chose to use orange and lemon juice for the citrus, but you could also use lime juice if you would like.

Top Secrets to an Awesome Cinderella Mocktail

  • Use freshly squeezed citrus juice instead of the botted kind.  It takes some extra time, but the flavor is so much better.  You can also enjoy the wonderful fragrance of citrus in your kitchen!
  • Don’t skip the Angostura bitters.  They add a fabulous depth of flavor that really enhances the citrus and pineapple.  If you aren’t really fond of the bitters, just decrease the amount until it pleases your tastebuds.
  • Serve the drinks immediately.  You don’t want all the fizz from the sparkling water to go away!
