“For alcohol-free festivities, try a bit of fake fizz! This delicately flavoured recipe makes 6 servings. Cheers! NOTE: If you've previously saved my recipe for Sham-pagne Cocktail and now think this looks different, you’re right! This is a new recipe posted in place of the earlier one, which I discovered to be a duplicate of the "Mock Champagne" recipe posted by Sharon123! Hey, that's two recipes for the price of one :-)”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (14 ounce) can pear halves in natural juice (in syrup or fruit juice)
  • 4 tablespoons elderflower cordial
  • 1 12 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 28 fluid ounces tonic water, chilled
  • 6 cocktail cherries


  1. Empty the pear halves and syrup into a blender, add the elderflower cordial and lemon juice then 'whizz' ingredients together to a smooth puree.
  2. Pour 2 fluid ounces puree into the bottom of each glass.
  3. Top glasses up with tonic water (watch it fizz!)and give the contents of each glass a quick stir; serve with a cocktail cherry.
  4. NOTE: you can make the puree in advance and leave it in the fridge until you're ready to use it; the longer you leave the puree, the more the flavours will develop.
