1001 Easy Mocktails

Click the image on the left to view the cookbook.
This one page cookbook lists 1001 mocktails. Mocktails are cocktails without alcohol. They look like cocktails, are mixed, garnished and served exactly like cocktails, but omit the alcohol. All recipes listed here are designed to be mixed from stuff easily available in most neighborhoods, Indian or western. Like cocktails, mocktails can be grouped into the major classes listed below.

0.: COBBLER is mixed with soda and sugar

1.: FIX has water, sugar and lemon juice.

2.: FIZZ is mixed with soda and lemon

3.: TOM COLLINS has sugar syrup, lemon and soda.

4.: DAISY is made from Lemon Juice, sugar and pomegranate syrup ( grenadine).

5.: FLIP is an acquired taste as it has raw eggs and sugar.

6.: MINT JULEP has both sugar and crushed mint.

7.: SOUR has powdered sugar, soda and lemon

8.: PUNCH is made from mixed fruit juices.

Creativity is the most important element in a mocktail. Play around with these recipes and shake up your own recipes !

We know for a fact that alcohol can cause various problems to the health, which doesn't sound good at all. This drink is good for the health considering there is no alcohol added to it.

Cooking is fun - Duplication is a pain !

"It is extraordinary to me that the idea of creating thousands of recipes by mixing building blocks takes immediately to people or it doesn’t take at all. .... If it doesn’t grab a person right away, ... you can talk to him for years and show him demos, and it doesn’t make any difference. They just don’t seem able to grasp the concept, simple as it is". ( Thanks Warren Buffett !)

"What's angering about instructions in many cookbooks is that they imply there's only one way to cook a dish - their way. And that presumption wipes out all the creativity." Cook dishes your way - Download  1001 South Indian curries now and learn to cook, not to duplicate ! ( Thanks Robert Pirsig !)

"Recipe purity is no different from racial purity or linguistic purity. It just does not exist. Cuisines are alive and change all the time. What is traditional today was esoteric just a few decades back. So being a 'foodist' is as bad as being a racist !

About Me

My photo
Chennai, Tamilnadu, India
Okay, let me start from the very beginning. 1500 crore years ago, with a Big Bang, the Universe is born. It expands dramatically. Hydrogen forms, contracts under gravity and lights up, forming stars. Some stars explode, dusting space with the building blocks of life. These condense into planets, one of which is Earth. Over time, self replicating molecules appear, multiply and become more complex. They create elaborate survival machines (cells, plants, animals). A variety of lifeforms evolve. Soon, humans arise, discover fire, invent language, agriculture and religion. Civilisations rise and fall. Alexander marches into India. Moguls establish an empire. Britain follows. Independence. Partition. Bloodshed. The license raj is in full sway. I'm born. India struggles to find its place. Liberalisation. The Internet arrives! I move from Tirupur to Chennai. Start a company. Expand into Malaysia, Singapore and the Middle East. Poof! Dot com bust. Funding dries up. Struggle. Retire. Discover the joy of cooking, giving, friendships and the pleasures of a simple life. Life seems less complicated. Pizza Republic, Pita Bite and Bhojan Express bloom !
