History & Origin
After providing you the recipe of Pink Passion Mocktail now we are sharing something important about mocktail. Cocktails rose in popularity during the 1980s, and became increasingly popular in the 2000s. The use of cocktails has proliferated deep into the drinking culture. Those who did not drink alcohol found themselves in a situation where other drinks, by comparison with cocktails, were generic non-alcoholic drinks. Because of the demand for more visually and aesthetic appealing drinks than normal soft drinks, the concept known as “Mocktails” was born.
Mocktails, an abbreviation for “mock cocktails”, are festive, non-alcoholic party drinks. The word “mock” implying a facade of the alcoholic cocktail without any of the alcoholic content. In last few years it has become so popular that it even finds its place on the cocktail menu in many restaurant and bars. Mocktails can be described as a smooth blend of only non-alcoholic drinks, which could be fresh fruit juices, syrups, cream, herbs and spices. Mocktails are designed specifically for those who do not take alcoholic drinks or need to refrain from them. They are particularly favoured over cocktails by drivers, pregnant women, and others who choose party drinks that are alcohol-free.
Pink Passion Mocktail Lemon
Must try Pink Passion Mocktail once in summer. The lemon, Citrus limon (L.) Osbeck, is a species of small evergreen tree in the flowering plant family Rutaceae, native to South Asia, primarily North eastern India. The tree’s ellipsoidal yellow fruit is used for culinary and non-culinary purposes. The pulp and rind (zest) are also used in cooking and baking. The juice of the lemon is about 5% to 6% citric acid, with a pH of around 2.2, giving it a sour taste.
The origin of the lemon is unknown. A genomic study of the lemon indicated it was a hybrid between bitter orange (sour orange) and citron. Lemons entered Europe near southern Italy no later than the second century AD, during the time of Ancient Rome. Around 700 Ad peoples of Persia, Iraq & Egypt then known about it.
Whipped Cream is also a main required ingredient in Pink Passion. This cream whisk or mixed until fluffy. This often sweetened and sometimes flavored with vanilla. This also called Chantilly cream or crème chantilly. It is a culinary colloid produced when heavy cream is subjected to mechanical aeration. Air is incorporated into cream containing at least 35% fat by one of two processes: mechanical agitation with a high-speed blade or whip, or injecting a gas under high pressure, which expands rapidly when released from pressurized containment.
During whipping, partially coalesced fat molecules create a stabilized network which traps air bubbles.] The resulting colloid is roughly double the volume of the original cream. If, however, the whipping is continued, the fat droplets will stick together destroying the colloid and forming butter. Lower-fat cream does not whip well, while higher-fat cream produces a more stable foam. The difference between “whipped cream” and “crème Chantilly” is not systematic.
Some authors distinguish between the two, with crème Chantilly being sweetened, and whipped cream not. However, most authors treat the two as synonyms with both being sweetened, neither being sweetened, or treating sweetening as optional. Many authors use only one of the two names (for the sweetened or unsweetened version), so it is not clear if they distinguish the two. The invention of crème Chantilly is often credited incorrectly, and without evidence, to François Vatel, maître d’hôtel at the Château de Chantilly in the mid-17th century.
Cherries also required in Pink Passion Mocktail. A cherry is the fruit of many plants of the genus Prunus, and is a fleshy drupe (stone fruit). The cherry fruits of commerce usually are obtained from cultivars of a limited number of species such as the sweet cherry (Prunus avium) and the sour cherry (Prunus cerasus). The name ‘cherry’ also refers to the cherry tree and its wood, and is sometimes applied to almonds and visually similar flowering trees in the genus Prunus, as in “ornamental cherry” or “cherry blossom”. Wild cherry may refer to any of the cherry species growing outside cultivation.
Many cherries are members of the subgenus Cerasus. They distinguished by having the flowers in small corymbs of several together. Also by having smooth fruit with only a weak groove along one side, or no groove. The subgenus is native to the temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere, with two species in America, three in Europe, and the remainder in Asia.
