The Cocktails & Mocktails Recipe Challenge

Last month, I entered myself into a Cocktails and Mocktails Mixology Contest, hosted by Marx Foods. These wonderful people sent me an amazing sample package of fennel pollensaffronlong pepperdill pollenjuniper berries and dried pineapple.

The idea: to do two different recipes for one cocktail and one mocktail (non-alcoholic drink). The only catch was that each drink had to utilize at least one of the sample ingredients. I wanted to use the sample ingredients to the best of my ability. After a lot of brainstorming, both recipes would be totally different and use two different ingredients per drink.

I hope you enjoy the ideas that I had for both of these drinks. Don’t forget to vote on the Marx Foods Website. The voting polls will be open from Tuesday, 9/11 to Thursday, 9/13. Happy drinking, mixologists!


I found this cocktail to be very similar to a strawberry daiquiri, so if you are a daiquiri fan, you will enjoy this drink.


For this Mocktail recipe, you can find the avocado pudding recipe here.
