sweet and zesty tropical sunset afterglow mocktail

Afterglow Mocktail

Afterglow mocktail (non-alcoholic cocktail) looks like a tropical sunset and is beautiful to behold. It has the right combination of sweet and zesty.

For such a simple drink, the layers of flavour are quite unexpected. This, you will notice, especially if you use natural fruits. A drink to show off with because nobody will guess how easy and cheap it is to make it.

Gently from the side, slowly pour in the syrup and do not stir, this gives it the two-tone appearance.

Place a straw and paper umbrella in your glass and serve with some snacks.


  • I like to use zobo syrup because it is much more economical than grenadine syrup.
  • Ribena has to be the concentrated one that comes in a bottle.
