Kiwi-osity: Non-alcoholic Kiwi, Lime and Ginger Fizz

When you need to give your body a little nutrient lovin’, whip up a glass of this non-alcoholic kiwi, lime and ginger fizz.  Packed with Vitamin C, antioxidants and other immune-boosting properties, it will not only leave you feeling refreshed but recharged.

Kiwi and lime have a similar sweet-tart profile that pairs well with the subtle heat of ginger.  It’s that ying-yang balance that creates harmony between the sweet and spicy flavors.

I like to add a little extra grating of fresh ginger to the mocktail to intensify the fiery spice of the ginger ale.  You can also substitute the ginger ale for a non-alcoholic ginger beer that tends to provide a little more of a spicy kick.

So, grab that shaker. Your body will thank you later.


  • 3 oz. (90 ml) kiwi juice (approximately 2 kiwis)
  • 1 oz. (30 ml) freshly squeezed lime juice (approximately 1 lime)
  • 8 mint leaves
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated ginger (optional)
  • 5 oz. (150 ml) ginger ale
  • Slice of lime and sprig of mint, to garnish


  • Knife
  • Immersion hand blender
  • Fine-mesh sieve
  • Metal spoon
  • Citrus juicer
  • Hand grater/zester
  • Jigger or measuring spoons
  • Cocktail shaker
  • Muddler (or the end of a rolling pin)
  • Cocktail spoon
  • Highball glass


  1. First, prepare the kiwi juice.
  2. Peel and cut the kiwi into small chunks.
  3. Use an immersion hand blender to liquidize the fruit until smooth.
  4. Pass the fruit through a fine-mesh sieve to separate the flesh and seeds from the juice, using a metal spoon to press the liquid through.
  5. Next, assemble the mocktail.
  6. Muddle the lime and mint leaves in the cocktail shaker.
  7. Add the kiwi juice and grater ginger (if using).
  8. Throw in a handful of ice and shake until the outside of the shaker is extremely cold – approximately 15-20 seconds.
  9. Strain into a highball glass filled with ice.
  10. Top with ginger ale and gently mix together with a cocktail spoon.
  11. Garnish with a slice of lime and a sprig of mint.

Non-alcoholic Kiwi, Lime and Ginger Fizz FAQ

How many kiwis do I need for the kiwi juice?
To yield the 3 oz. (90 ml) of kiwi juice required for this recipe, you’ll need 2 medium sized kiwis.  Juice volume will vary based on the size of the kiwi and the ripeness of the fruit.

Can I use a free-standing blender instead of an immersion hand blender to make the kiwi juice?
Yes, you can use any type of blender to liquidize the kiwi.  I like to use an immersion hand blender because it’s easy to use and clean.  However, any blender will work.  The key is to ensure that the kiwi juice is as smooth as possible before passing it through the fine-mesh sieve.

Can I use canned or bottled kiwi juice instead of making my own?
Absolutely, you can use canned or bottled kiwi juice if you prefer.  I find that making your own kiwi juice gives the mocktail a fresher and more vibrant flavor.  However, it does require a little more preparation.

Do I have to strain the kiwi juice?
Straining the kiwi juice helps to remove the seeds and pulp, making it smooth and silky.  Skipping this step will change the texture of the drink to a more smoothie-like consistency.  I find that the strained juice makes a more sophisticated mocktail.  However, the decision is entirely up to you how you’d like to serve and enjoy the drink.

How finely should I grate the ginger?
If you choose to add fresh ginger to the drink, grate it as finely as possible with a hand grater or citrus zester.  This will add flavor without sizeable pieces of ginger making their way into the final drink.

Can I use regular soda instead of ginger ale?
Yes, you can use regular soda instead of ginger ale.  However, it will change the character of the drink completely.  My recommendation would be to use either ginger ale or ginger beer for this recipe.

Can I make this recipe in advance?
If you want to get ahead, you can juice the kiwi and lime in advance.  However, you’ll want to wait until you are ready to serve the drink before muddling the mint and shaking the rest of the ingredients together.
