N/A Strawberry Passion Smash

A CLASSIC REIMAGINED WITH A GUT-FRIENDLY INGREDIENT THAT SEEMS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!


When at a bar and I am not sure what to order and just cannot decide based on the menu, one of my foolproof orders is a bourbon smash. When dry January came around, I knew I wanted to create a version at home that is on brand for The Tash Mashup. A non-alcoholic version, of course.


We're all about interesting flavor combos and when you find a brand that does your heritage proud like Wildwonder, your girl gets REAL EXCITED. You can actually taste the fresh fruit in the can - and wow, does jammy strawberry and bright passion fruit juice go together like a dream! We then add a few key ingredients that are found in a smash including lemon, mint, and some zero-proof bourbon, and wow - TONS OF FLAVOR with minimal effort.


And when it comes to staying on brand...a portion of Wildonder's profits goes directly toward empowering women and marginalized communities. Wildwonder is incredible and I have been a fan since I watched them on Shark Tank! All of the flavors are unique and delicious.


That's not all. Wildwonder beverages also support your gut and immune health in addition to being caffeine-free. There are 5 grams of prebiotics and 1 billion live probiotics in each can! Like what? I feel like functional mocktails are truly something else but this one? One that tastes and feels like this? She's a keeper!


I feel like this one would also carry itself well into February, I for sure would love this served at Galentine's, especially considering the Strawberry Passion Wildwonder includes botanicals that elevate your mood! It's never been easier to make a non-alcoholic smash at home that makes you feel amazing and tastes like this - I KNOW YOU WILL BE JUST AS OBSESSED WITH THIS RECIPE!

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 1-inch ripe strawberries, cut in half

  • 2-3 1-inch lemon wedges

  • 3-4 sprigs of fresh mint

  • 2 tablespoons of strawberry jam

  • 3 ounces of zero-proof bourbon (I used Free Spirits)

  • 2 oz Wildwonder Strawberry Passion sparkling drink to top

  • Fresh passionfruit half, optional for garnish


DIRECTIONS 

  1. In the bottom of a cocktail shaker, add in your strawberries and lemon wedges.

  2. Slap your mint to release its oils and then add to the cocktail shaker followed by strawberry jam and the zero-proof bourbon.

  3. Add ice and shake vigorously for 15 seconds or until well chilled.

  4. Pour into a rocks glass over a single large ice cube.

  5. Pour Wildwonder Strawberry Passion sparkling drink to top.

  6. I opted to garnish with half of a passionfruit on a cocktail pick, but you can also garnish this one with more fresh mint and/or a lemon wedge.


~ Serves 1


Notes

  • You can opt to not use zero-proof bourbon and make the drink without it, but the recipe will change. Not in a bad way though! If you are not using bourbon, I'd just recommend using 1 tablespoon (or less) of the strawberry jam.

  • I know...its a LOT of mint in this recipe. I've found that it works best this way when making a non-alcoholic version of this recipe, but you can use less mint if desired.

  • If you cannot seem to find the Strawberry Passion Wildwonder, you can opt to use a strawberry and/or berry-forward kombucha to top. Alternatively, you can top it with some passion fruit juice and some club soda (1 oz of each). As a last resort, you can also just simply top with some citrus soda like Sprite or Limca.

  • The jam I found adds a nice tartness to the beverage but can be made without. If you don't have jam on hand, just leave it out rather than using a different flavor of jam! Feel free to experiment but I just wanted to let you in on my reco to get the best results. :)
