Love Potion Number

Valentine's Day is the perfect occasion to celebrate the ones you love. The "nein" is a punny nod to "no" in German—as in no alcohol. It's fizzy, refreshing and versatile. Great for those who don't drink. And if you're hosting a cocktail party, you can always have spirits on hand for those who wish to imbibe.


  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 1 cup sparkling water or club soda
  • Ice cubes
  • Fresh mint leaves for garnish
  • Heart-shaped ice cube molds
  • edible rose petals (optional)


  1. Prepare the Heart-shaped Ice Cubes (Optional): If you want to add a touch of romance to your mocktail, fill heart-shaped ice cube molds with water or cranberry juice and freeze them until solid. 

  2. Muddle the Berries: In a cocktail shaker or a sturdy glass, muddle together the fresh raspberries, sliced strawberries, honey, and lemon juice until the berries are well mashed and the honey is dissolved.

  3. Strain the Mixture: If you prefer a smoother mocktail, strain the muddled berry mixture through a fine mesh sieve to remove the seeds. Otherwise, you can skip this step for a more rustic texture.

  4. Assemble the Mocktail: Fill serving glasses with ice cubes (heart-shaped ones if using) and divide the strained berry mixture equally among the glasses.

  5. Add Cranberry Juice: Pour cranberry juice over the muddled berries, filling each glass about halfway.

  6. Top with Sparkling Water: Finish off the mocktails by topping them with sparkling water or club soda, adding a refreshing fizz.

  7. Garnish and Serve: Give each mocktail a gentle stir, garnish with fresh mint leaves for a pop of color and aroma, and serve immediately.
