Any cool non-alcoholic drink reciepes? Unfortunately being Japanese, my liver is missing an enzyme to properly process alcohol; as a result I have an "allergy" to alcohol. It's some kind of horrible curse - one beer and I'm totally smashed! I already drink my fill of passion fruit and guava juice; but now I'd like to see if there are any non-alcohlic mixes out there that I can enjoy.

I've developed some fairly decent "mocktails" and would love to have more.
They're... you know... kind of bland.

One is a "Mock Tai": replace the rum with pineapple juice and replace the curacao with orange juice.

Also, I like 2 oz. pom, 2 oz. lime a splash of pineapple and fill the glass with lime flavored soda water.

Also, you can spice up non-alcoholic drinks with just a touch of pernod or falernum.

Or you can go ahead and drink absinthe and lose a week.

I'd love to have a book of mock-tail recipes that actually tasted better than Hi-C or Hawaiian Punch.

I'd also love an NA rum substitute. Someone help me. Come on Ahu, I know you can do it.

Mrs. GR likes the Queen Colada at the Mai-Kai, which is basically a virgin Pina Colada with orange juice. We've played around with it a bit to get it as close as we could and came up with this:

1 1/2 oz crushed pineapple
1 1/2 oz cream of coconut
1 1/2 oz pineapple juice
1 1/2 oz fresh squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup crushed ice

Blend until smooth. Garnish with an orange slice and a maraschino cherry.

I find that I like non-alcoholic tropicals if there's a little carbonation in them -- not so much that they taste like pop, but enough that it adds a little bite to what would otherwise just be a glass of juice. I suppose that's why carbonated pop is used as a base for so many non-alcoholic punches. Try adding a little soda water, if you have any non-alcoholic drinks you're working on that are a little dullsville.

I like the virgin version of a drink I always heard referred to as a Napoleon Lemonade. It's basically lemonade made with orgeat syrup in place of sugar. It's very tasty! Easy to make and utilizes a favorite tiki drink flavor.

I think Trader Vic's calls that a No Tai Mai Tai. Mrs. GR likes that one too.

Fresh lime juice is always nice in non-alcoholic drinks, it perks them up and adds the missing sour element.

Mojitos are half decent without the booze, maybe try adding some orange bitters and it would be even closer to a mai tai.

I agree with humu on the fizz factor, it helps cut the sweetness so many non-alcoholic drinks are in excess of.

We're lucky in that many of the important elements in a good tiki drink are non-alcoholic. Fresh lime, lemon & grapefruit, maple syrup, sugar syrup, orgeat, passion fruit & coconut syrups, all the juices, falernum(available in both alcoholic and non), bitters, orange & rose flower water, etc. etc.

There really are so many things to experiment with.
