Just finished going through Mamamoo’s Rooftop Live, and just got in the mood of finding drinks for Mamamoo’s Four Seasons, Four Colors project. Coz LOL Yeba saying the lime was a kiwi and trying to stab it xD and Whee-in’s mixology skills; and my children having a blast at their Red Moon and Yellow Flower cocktails. xD
Even though I don’t drink, I do have a thing for mixology— especially for non-alcoholic drinks; so I spent some time browsing the web to find these seasonal drinks~
First off~~~ Hwasa’s Yellow Flower drink: the Ginger Apricot cocktail.
Apricots are -supposed to be- in season in spring and early summer~ they’re sweet compared to other spring-y things like cherries, kiwis, lemons, kumquats or strawberries… and they’re kinda like peaches, which are supposed to be in season later. The ginger adds to the punch xD
According to rokz it’s made of:
- 2.5 ounces ginger cardamom infused vodka
- 0.5 ounce fresh lemon juice
- 1 ounce apricot orange simple syrup
- 1 ounce club soda
- Pureed canned apricots
Whee-in, you’re supposed to add your liquid ingredients (except the soda, coz lol carbonated) in the shaker with ice, shake it to chill it, and then pour it in your glass (with large ice cubes) through the strainer. Add some pureed apricot, top with soda.
You could probably substitute the vodka (and soda xDDDDD) with non-alcoholic ginger beer. This is my favorite brand.
For Byul’s Red Mood, we got: the Sparkling Watermelon cocktail.
Summery as heck. For Byul, probably add more gin than ginger ale xDDDDD It’s the fancy Moonstar version of the frozen watermelon with vodka coz you can serve it in an actual glass xD
- 4 Cups Watermelon, Cubed
- 2 Limes
- 1⅓ Cups Ginger Ale
- 3 Oz Gin (Optional)
- Additional Lime Wedges For Garnish, If desired
You gotta blend the watermelon, and then strain it so it doesn’t look lumpy. Ice, fill half a cup of watermelon juice, squeeze the lime and top with the gin and/or the ginger ale.
For Solar’s Blue fall season, it was tricky~ but I settled for: the Commodore Daiquiri.
[There’s also a Blue Moon one xDDDDD]
It’s not exactly blue, but you want to skip Curacao coz it’s gross. xD And it’s fall. IT’S TRICKY coz the daiquiri sounds super Pacific Island summer, but it’s listed on the Fall cocktails list of Town & Country magazine xD maybe because it has ube/purple yam extract, which gives it its distinct purplish/blueish tone.
It’s also fancy as heck coz you gotta garnish with an orchid xDDDDDD
- 1 oz lime juice
- 0.5 oz cane syrup
- 1 tsp Orgeat Works HD orgeat
- 1 dsh ube extract (available on Amazon)
- 1 oz pineapple infused Barbancourt White Rhum
- 1 oz El Dorado three-year-old rum
However, it also has quite a bit of alcohol and Yeba can’t drink, so there’s also color-changing lemonades xDDDDDD
For Wheein’s White winter season, it’s tricky coz it’s WHITE! But I settled for: the Apple Rosemary Rickey.
It’s funny how everything in winter is heavy and spiced. More spiced that in the fall. So I almost fell for the Snowflake Martini, and LOL since Whee-in is a Harry Potter stan, I was gonna go for the Butterbeer… but decided for something lighter.
- 2 oz Cointreau
- 1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
- 3-4 oz Club Soda
- 3 slices of Tart Apple
- 7 leaves of Fresh Rosemary
You gotta crush the apple with the rosemary leaves, then add the Cointreau, the lime juice, put ice and top with the soda. Stir it a bit, and then garnish it with another couple of apple slices and more rosemary.
I’ve never really drunk a cocktail with apple, so I can’t offer a non-alcoholic alternative to this drink ToT
