Mermaid's Song and Tropical Storm (Non-Alcoholic)

Today I'm posting two non-alcoholic drinks as part of my new interest in virgin cocktails. Virgin drinks are really becoming popular at restaurants where they can be served to kids or pregnant mothers, and still be high quality cocktails. They also include the drinker in the fun of having something special from the restaurant, not just a bottled soda or juice. Both of these drinks use passion fruit juice, which makes them very tropical. With just small differences in their proportions, they are very similar, so they get one posting. If you have all the ingredients for one, you can do the other.

Mermaid's Song (Left)
  • 2 oz. orange juice
  • 1 oz. passion fruit juice
  • 1 oz. coconut milk
  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • maraschino cherry
Combine all ingredients except cherry in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled white wine glass. Garnish with the cherry.

Tropical Storm 
  • 2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 oz. passion fruit syrup (made from juice)
  • 1/2 tsp. orgeat (almond) syrup    
  • pineapple spear (optional)
 Combine all ingredients in a highball glass full of ice and stir.
