I’m not usually one for taking the time to make a non-alcoholic beverage, but I’ve been wanting to try something new! The other day I decided to make a spicy pineapple cinnamon juice concentrate from some leftover frozen pineapple that I saved over the Summer. I used the homemade juice to make this Spicy Cinnamon Pineapple & Ginger Mocktail. Honestly it was one of the best drinks I’ve ever made!
This Spicy Cinnamon Pineapple & Ginger Mocktail is only 2-ingredients once you make the juice concentrate (and let me tell you it is WORTH. IT.). The juice concentrate has pineapple juice, lime juice, and some spices, and all you do is top it off with ginger beer for a refreshing sweet and spicy non-alcoholic drink!
Regardless of if you drink alcohol or not, it’s always nice to spend time to make something to enjoy no matter what time of day. When you put in the hard work, it tastes even better! This Spicy Cinnamon Pineapple & Ginger Mocktail was the first time I ever put effort into making any type of non-alcoholic drink because usually I’m lazy and buy juice from the store. This drink had so much more depth of flavor and didn’t give me a headache from all of the sugar (which ALWAYS happens when I buy a juice from the store).
