Mocktails are more than just a drink; they are a celebration of flavours, creativity, and the art of mixology.

Whether you're hosting a stylish brunch or simply unwinding after a long day, our Sparkling Hibiscus Orange Mocktail will elevate your experience. This elegant concoction combines the floral allure of hibiscus tea, the vibrant zest of fresh orange juice, and the sparkling charm of Oddbird Sparkling Rosé. Let’s embark on a journey to craft this delightful drink.

The Essentials of a Perfect Mocktail

Hibiscus Tea: Nature’s Floral Gift

Hibiscus tea is a strikingly beautiful and flavourful ingredient that brings a touch of nature’s elegance to any drink. Its deep red hue and tart, cranberry-like taste make it a standout component in mocktails. Beyond its visual appeal, hibiscus tea is rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, offering a refreshing and healthful twist.

Orange Juice: A Citrus Classic

Orange juice is a beloved staple that adds a burst of sunshine to every sip. Known for its bright, tangy flavour and wealth of vitamin C, freshly squeezed orange juice provides natural sweetness and a vibrant citrus note that complements the floral hibiscus tea perfectly. Its refreshing taste and health benefits make it an essential ingredient in our mocktail.

Oddbird's Craft: Redefining Non-Alcoholic Wine

Founded in 2013 by Moa Gürbüzer, Oddbird stands as a testament to her dedication and vision. With over twenty years of experience as a family therapist and social worker, she predominantly addressed alcohol-related familial concerns. The pervasive and recurring nature of these issues deeply impacted her, highlighting the profound negative influence of alcohol on society. Recognising the urgent need for a transformative shift, Moa launched Oddbird.

Her mission? To challenge and reshape society’s prevailing alcohol norms by introducing premium non-alcoholic wines. She envisioned a world where asking, “Would you like your wine with or without alcohol?” would be as routine as, “Would you prefer your coffee with or without milk?” Today, Oddbird reigns as Scandinavia’s premier producer of non-alcoholic wine. Oddbird’s success lies in its commitment to quality.

The company collaborates with winemakers who respect tradition and nature. The wines are matured for up to 12 months and then gently liberated from alcohol using a unique method that preserves the wine’s natural flavours and aromas. This meticulous process ensures that the end product is not just an alternative to alcoholic wines but a premium beverage in its own right.

Its delicate flavours of red berries and citrus harmonise beautifully with the other ingredients.
  • Hibiscus Tea: This vibrant, tart tea forms the floral base of the mocktail. Known for its deep red hue and unique flavour, hibiscus tea adds both colour and complexity to the drink, making it visually appealing and delicious.
  • Fresh Orange Juice: The zesty kick of fresh orange juice adds a bright and vibrant note that complements the floral hibiscus tea. It provides a refreshing and tangy flavour that enhances the overall drinking experience.

Health Benefits

This non-alcoholic beverage is not only a delight to drink but also offers several health benefits. The combination of hibiscus tea, fresh orange juice, honey syrup, and Oddbird Sparkling Rosé creates a mocktail that is both refreshing and nutritious.

Antioxidant Power of Hibiscus Tea

Hibiscus tea is rich in antioxidants, which help fight free radicals in the body. These antioxidants support overall health by reducing inflammation and promoting cardiovascular health. The tart flavour of hibiscus tea also aids in digestion and supports liver function.

Nutritional Value of Orange Juice

Orange juice is packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It is particularly rich in vitamin C, which supports immune health and helps protect your cells from damage. The natural sugars in orange juice provide a quick energy boost, making it a great addition to any drink.

Benefits of Honey

Honey is a natural sweetener that offers antibacterial and antioxidant properties. It can help soothe sore throats, improve digestion, and provide a natural source of energy. Honey's floral notes add depth to the mocktail, enhancing the overall flavour experience.

Hydration with Sparkling Rosé

Oddbird Sparkling Rosé adds a refreshing effervescence that makes the drink light and invigorating. As a non-alcoholic wine, it allows you to enjoy the complex flavours of rosé without the dehydrating effects of alcohol. This makes it a perfect choice for those looking to stay hydrated while enjoying a sophisticated beverage.

Crafting Your Sparkling Hibiscus Orange Mocktail

Step-by-Step Mixing Guide

Step 1: Prepare Your Glass

Fill a glass with ice cubes to chill. A chilled glass keeps your mocktail refreshingly cold from the first sip to the last, enhancing the overall drinking experience.

Step 2: Add the Base Ingredients

Pour 60 ml of chilled hibiscus tea and 30 ml of fresh orange juice into the glass. The combination of these ingredients forms the flavourful base of the mocktail.

Step 3: Add Honey Syrup

Add 15 ml of honey syrup (made from equal parts honey and water) to the glass. The honey syrup adds a touch of natural sweetness that balances the tartness of the hibiscus tea.

Step 4: Top with Sparkling Rosé

Top up the glass with 120 ml of Oddbird Sparkling Rosé. The sparkling rosé adds a refreshing effervescence that lightens the drink and makes it incredibly refreshing.

Step 5: Stir Gently

Gently stir to combine all the ingredients, ensuring a consistent flavour throughout the drink.

Step 6: Garnish and Serve

Garnish with an orange slice and a hibiscus flower for an added touch of elegance. Serve immediately and enjoy the refreshing, floral, and citrus flavours of your mocktail.

The Science of Flavour Pairing

Balancing Floral and Citrus Flavours

This mocktail expertly combines the floral charm of hibiscus tea with the bright, zesty notes of fresh orange juice, resulting in a drink that is both refreshing and elegant. The honey syrup introduces a touch of natural sweetness, perfectly balancing the tartness of the hibiscus tea. The addition of Oddbird Sparkling Rosé adds a bubbly effervescence, elevating the mocktail to a truly indulgent experience.

Crafting a Harmonious Flavour Profile

Each ingredient in this beverage is thoughtfully chosen to create a harmonious blend. The tart hibiscus tea is beautifully offset by the sweetness of honey syrup, while the fresh orange juice adds a vibrant citrus burst. Oddbird Sparkling Rosé ties everything together, making each sip perfectly balanced and refreshing.

The Art of Garnishing

Garnishes enhance both the presentation and flavour of the mocktail. Thoughtfully selected garnishes add visual appeal and an extra layer of flavour, making each sip more enjoyable.

Orange Slice

An orange slice garnish provides a burst of colour and a hint of citrus aroma. Place it on the rim of the glass or let it float on top for an elegant presentation.

Hibiscus Flower

A hibiscus flower adds a sophisticated floral note, complementing the main ingredients and enhancing the overall aesthetic of the drink.
