Non-alcoholic cocktails are more than mocktails with Highland Spring

At Highland Spring we don’t believe that you should have to choose between treating yourself and looking after yourself. That’s why we’ve created these delicious non-alcoholic cocktail recipes (or ‘mocktail’ recipes if you prefer). Each one uses Sparkling Highland Spring natural source spring water to make a zingy and refreshing drink that still feels suitably indulgent.


We find that our Homemade Ginger Ale is the perfect drink for summer – a sweet treat with a gentle glow that’s perfect for that golden hour! But we’re sure it will also bring a smile to your face and a buzz to your taste buds whatever the time of year.

What will you need?

For 5 servings:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup finely chopped peeled ginger
  • 2 cups of cold still water
  • 8 lime wedges
  • 1L Highland Spring Sparkling Water


Bring the chopped ginger, sugar, and 2 cups of cold still water to a boil in a small saucepan. When boiling, remove from the heat, cover, and let sit for 30 minutes before straining through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl or jar. Discard any remaining ginger and let your mix cool completely.

For each drink, pour 50ml of your ginger syrup (or ginger cordial) and 200ml of Highland Spring Sparkling into glass filled with ice. Stir to combine and garnish with a lime wedge.

Your ginger syrup will keep in the fridge for one week.


Our Pineapple, Chilli and Lime Soda is a real taste bud tingler and tropical treat. Great in the summer or just whenever you feel in need of a little sunshine. This drink will leave you feeling hot, hot, hot!

What will you need?

For 4 long drinks you’ll need:

  • 1 Tbsp. pink peppercorns
  • 1 lime
  • 1/2 tsp. dried chilli flakes
  • 500ml pineapple juice
  • 2 tbsp of sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1L Highland Spring Sparkling Water


Crush the pink peppercorns with the side of a knife and add to a small pot with the chilli flakes, pineapple juice, sugar and salt. Zest the lime and add to the pot before heating gently until just warm and the sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool and infuse for around 20 mins.

Per glass, mix 50ml of pineapple syrup (more if you like it sweeter!) with 250ml of Highland Spring Sparkling, serve over ice and garnish with lime and a sprinkling dried chilli flakes. 😋

Your pineapple syrup will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days so there’s plenty for everyone!
