If you’re a golf player you are sure to have come across the Transfusion cocktail. Often a clubhouse drink but often seen being drunk on fairways. Outside of this environment you’re unlikely to see this delicious drink but hopefully this changes, as it’s a drink that deserves to be mainstream. (Don’t mistake this with the Blood Transfusion Cocktail, that’s a different drink)

Transfusion Mocktail Recipe

It’s very simple to make a Transfusion mocktail. Just don’t add any vodka. Make the rest of the drink in exactly the same way.

Transfusion Variations and Tips

I have added Ginger Ale or Sprite to the recipe as both versions are very common. But you can have it with any lemonade or lime soda

I don’t know if it’s because people didn’t have all the ingredients or were lazy, but often just grape juice and vodka is called a transfusion cocktail
