Many people create spicy mocktail recipes at home. While others have created YouTube channels dedicated to the creation of unique spicy mocktail recipes. They’re wonderful for social gatherings or for experimenting with different flavours.

But, with many people wanting an alcohol-free life nowadays, what alternatives are there? Well, that’s where mocktails come in.

At half the cost, and with the guarantee of no next day headache – let DESIblitz guide you through six spicy mocktail recipes.

Mango Mint Spicy Mocktail

Mango & Lime

Looking for something fizzy with a kick?

Then look no further than the mango mint spicy mocktail recipe.

Combining soda water with mango nectar, mint, jalapeno pepper, and chaat masala. This drink certainly packs a strong punch.

The mixture of fresh mint, sweet mango and spicy jalapeno creates an explosion in the mouth.

But be aware – the more jalapenos you add the spicier the mocktail will be. Add at your own risk!

Spiced Honey Punch


This sweet but spicy mixture of cloves, cinnamon, and ginger, makes for the perfect winter warmer mocktail.

Best served warm, this mocktail takes five minutes to create. However, it must be heated and strained before being served.

Using such an eclectic array of spices tantalises the senses. Not only that but, it provides the perfect health boost for the immune system!

Spicy Tomato Mocktail


Ah, the humble Bloody Mary. Possibly the most popular of all cocktails. But what’s this, no vodka?

Possibly the most popular of all cocktails. But what’s this, no vodka?

That’s right, you can still get the same kick in a Bloody Mary without the use of alcohol.

By substituting the vodka for horseradish, hot sauce and black pepper – you still get a take-your-breathe-away punch of flavour.

The recipe takes around two minutes to prepare and make. It’s perfect served with celery sticks.

The Black Grape

Black Grape

This fruit-infused, antioxidant fuelled mocktail is a delight for the pallet.

A satisfying mixture of fennel, cumin, and thyme. This recipe provides a warming but slightly bitter mocktail.

Although, this may take a little longer to produce than some of the other mocktails. This is mainly because of the cumin, fennel and thyme, which all need to be roasted in a pan.

Once created this mocktail is great for the immune system. It’s refreshing and original and is perfect sipped from a long glass.

Pistachio Milk


If you’re a lover of creamy cocktails, then this is for you!

Although, the tamest out of all the recipes. This delightful mocktail is subtle yet, spicy.

The blend of pistachios, cardamom, and vanilla makes for a smooth sensation in the mouth. It’s perfect served in a tulip glass over ice.

However, if it’s a real spice kick you’re looking for – you can add a couple of teaspoons of cinnamon into the mix!

This recipe is more time consuming and can take up to 30 minutes to create. But, it is certainly worth the extra effort!

Spicy Watermelon Mocktail


What’s more refreshing than a slice of watermelon?

How about blended watermelon combined with cayenne and jalapeno pepper?

Although it sounds strange, this recipe is the perfect balance of refreshing and tantalising.

The mocktail is wonderful served in a jug over lashings of ice. Just what you need on a hot day!

Find out how to make these unusual combinations of spicy mocktail recipes, adapted from a vegan recipe over on below:


  • 1 cup frozen watermelon cubes
  • 1 cup fresh watermelon cubes
  • ½ jalapeno
  • ¼ cup simple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • Sparkling water (to top it off)
  • 1 tbsp. kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper


  1. In a blender combine the fresh and the frozen watermelon cubes and half the jalapeno. (You could also add some cayenne pepper at this point for extra spice.) Blend until you can’t see any jalapeno left.
  2. Strain the mixture and discard the pulp.
  3. Add lime juice and simple syrup.
  4. Stir.
  5. Combine salt and cayenne pepper in a flat bowl. Run a wedge of lime around the edge of the glass and dip wet edges into spicy salt.
  6. Pour glasses 2/3 full with the mixture then top off with sparkling water. Garnish with jalapeno and watermelon slices.

Spicy mocktail recipes are easy and fun to make at home. They provide a brilliant alternative to everyday soft drinks.

With so many different flavours to choose from, why not create them for your next social gathering? They’re sure to be the talk of the party!
