Pineapple Ginger Sparklers

A refreshing mojito meets pina colada mocktail, topped with spicy ginger beer. The flavours in this drink are thirst quenching and satisfying, and makes the perfect treat after a day of fasting.


Pineapple Ginger Sparklers

Prep Time: 2 hour 15 minutes Cook Time: 0 minutes Yield: approx 8-10 6 oz servings


  • 1 & 1/2 limes, quartered

  • 10 mint leaves

  • 1 L pineapple juice

  • 1/3 cup coconut cream, stirred very well

  • 660 ml (approx 2 cans) ginger beer

  • crushed ice

  • lime slices, for garnish


  1. In a 50 oz (or larger) french press or drink pitcher, add the lime quarters and mint leaves. Muddle very well to crush the lime and mint leaves - you can use a fork, a heavy rolling pin, or a large pestle if you don't have a muddler.

  2. Add the pineapple juice and coconut cream; stir well to combine. If using a french press, put the lid on and press down; if it looks like it might overflow, remove some of the limes so that the volume decreases. Chill in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours, or until ready to serve.

  3. When ready to serve, pour some crushed ice into 6 oz glasses. Divide the pineapple juice mixture evenly between your glasses, filling about 2/3 of the way full, then top off the glasses with ginger beer. If desired, garnish each glass with a lime slice on the rim.


  • You can substitute lemon or lime sparkling water in place of ginger beer for a more citrusy drink.

  • You can make this drink in a pitcher as well; just strain out the limes and mint leaves after refrigerating for 2 hours before assembling the drinks.
