Cool off and hydrate with this Orange Kiwi Ginger Mocktail, made with fresh fruit, orange juice and ginger beer for fizz and flavor.

It's no secret that I love making fun and fruity drink recipes. From this herby Pear Ginger Lemon + Thyme Drink to a tropical Strawberry Basil Pineapple Mocktail, it's so much more fun to hydrate when your drink is infused with fresh fruit and some bubbles.

This Orange Kiwi Ginger Mocktail is a new favorite that I'll be making all summer long. It has a thick, almost smoothie-like texture. But there's no blending or food processing needed! Plus this mocktail is free of refined sugars and is totally vegan.

How to Make Orange Kiwi Ginger Mocktails

The most important thing for this drink recipe is to use ripe, sweet and fresh fruit. Here's what you'll need to make it:

  • Fresh kiwis. Peel the kiwis with a vegetable peeler or cut them in half and use a spoon to scoop out the green flesh.
  • Orange juice. You'll want to squeeze this yourself for the best flavor, rather than using store-bought juice.
  • Agave. You can also use another sweetener like honey (if you're not vegan), maple syrup or coconut sugar. Or, if you want to skip the added sweetener altogether, go for it!
  • Ginger beer. This is a non-alcoholic, deliciously gingery soda that adds just the right amount of fizz to top off the drinks.

Garnish Ideas

Have some fun garnishing your kiwi and ginger drinks! I like to use more fresh kiwi and some pretty herbs. Rosemary goes great with ginger.

Can I Make a Cocktail with Ginger-Kiwi Juice?

Yes! If you want to turn this mocktail into an adult beverage, you can add a shot of vodka or tequila to each glass over ice.

Health Benefits

The ingredients in this recipe have some important health benefits, which means that this drink is as good for you as it is delicious.

Here are some notable benefits of eating kiwi, orange juice and ginger:

  • Fiber. Fresh fruits like kiwi are high in dietary fiber, which is good for healthy digestion and helps you feel full.
  • Vitamin C. Orange juice is an excellent source of vitamin C, which promotes a healthy immune system and glowing skin.
  • Digestion. Ginger is often used to aid in digestion and other stomach troubles.
