This Orange Juice Mocktail will brighten up any brunch table
I recently got my hands on this little peapod mould, which makes round ice balls. It is quite possibly the cutest thing I’ve seen in a while, and I can’t seem to put it down. I’ve been making so many ice cubes, and I think I’m actually addicted to popping the sphere ice cubes out of the peapod! Strange thing I know, but it’s just so satisfying when you can pinch the ice cubes right out of the peapod.
You don’t need one of these peapod ice cube makers to make this orange juice mocktail, but if you ever needed an excuse to go buy this little cute peapod ice cube maker, I’m giving you your excuse now. The sphere ice cubes give this brunch mocktail a distinctive look and are just plain fun.
This non-alcoholic brunch drink is refreshing, beautiful and easy to make
But either way, with or without sphere ice cubes, this orange juice mocktail is incredibly easy to make and delicious. It is beautiful to serve at a breakfast or brunch gathering, but also simple enough to make at home for yourself on a regular basis.
I normally enjoy this recipe as a mocktail, but to make this mocktail into a brunch cocktail, I’d suggest a touch of gin. The botanical notes of the gin enhance the piney rosemary taste, and the flavors blend together into a bright cocktail.
Turn this orange juice mocktail into a cocktail with some vanilla infused gin
If you have time to plan ahead (or can keep this recipe in mind for a future brunch event), infuse some vanilla pods in gin and use that to give this brunch drink some extra flavor.
Cheers to you and your breakfast with this Good Morning Sunburst Orange Juice Mocktail! Have fun making sunshine ice balls, and if you are so keen, you can even pick up a specially made ice tongs.
