Sugar-Free Appletini Mocktail Recipe

Appletini Mocktail Recipe

Holiday time is in full swing and with that comes parties, shopping, and family get-togethers. It's always nice to have a drink or two during these times to unwind, but sometimes the drinks available are loaded with sugar, and wouldn’t we rather save our sugar calories for cookies and other holiday treats? When this is the case, it’s always a good idea to have some backup plans for a delicious drink that you can make and enjoy with your loved ones. Whether you're looking for a festive non-alcoholic cocktail to serve at a party or simply looking for a festive beverage to enjoy at the office holiday party or during family festivities, this booze-free drink will have you feeling like a million bucks.

Before we get to the recipe, let’s also point out that this drink is super hydrating, so even if you decide to add booze to it, you are still making efforts to keep yourself hydrated.

As you may know, we are BIG on hydration here at Ultima and we are super stoked to share this easy recipe using one of our newest mocktail Electrolyte Hydration Powder Mixes, Appletini! The juicy apple flavors in this mocktail pair perfectly with the creamy sugar-free ‘caramel’ sauce. Add some gorgeous garnishes, and your Appletini Mocktail will be the envy of your next event. Oh, and we forgot to mention that aside from all of its apple goodness, this hydration mix is loaded with energy-boosting nutrients! It’s also perfectly vegan & keto, and has 0g sugar, 0 calories, and 0g carbs, and most importantly: it tastes yummy!

So without further ado, let’s get into it!

Caramel Appletini Mocktail Recipe

From Rachel Steenland (@rachelsteenland)

Ingredients (makes 1):

2 teaspoons unsweetened apple puree

1 fl oz unsweetened spiced apple cider

1 scoop Ultima Replenisher Appletini Mocktini Electrolyte HydrationPowder

Sparkling water


Peanut Butter ‘Caramel’ Sauce:

1 teaspoon smooth unsweetened peanut butter

1/2 teaspoon stevia (zero calorie sugar substitute)

1/2 teaspoon water

Garnish (optional):

Dehydrated apple slice

Cinnamon stick

Star anise


1. Prepare Caramel Sauce by mixing together peanut butter, stevia and water. Stir to form a smooth sauce. Set aside.

2. Into a cocktail shaker or tall glass, add apple puree, spiced apple cider, and 1 scoop Ultima Replenisher Appletini Mocktini Electrolyte Hydration Powder. Stir to combine. If using a cocktail shaker, transfer the mixture into a tall glass.

3. To the glass, add ice, and top off with sparkling water.

4. Drizzle rim with caramel sauce and garnish.


Well, there you have it; a wonderful and delicious drink that will surely be the highlight of any shindig. The best thing about this hydration powder mix is that it is very versatile, so if you want to get creative and make it your own, you totally can. And if you’re really feeling the holiday “spirit,” you can add a shot of your favorite liquor (bourbon for a healthier version of a Washington apple, or vodka for a more hydrating twist on a traditional appletini). If you like to change things up, Ultima offers a Mocktini Variety Pack so you can enjoy sugar-free versions of all your favorite drinks, including Coconut Pina Colada, Peach Bellini, and of course, the Appletini.
