Bora Bora Cocktail — Non-alcoholic and fruity drink

The Bora Bora cocktail — sounds like South Seas, endless beaches, and delicious fruits! There is more than enough of the latter in the sugary and alcohol-free Bora Bora cocktail.

Where does the Bora Bora cocktail actually come from?

The exciting thing about the history of this cocktail is that no one knows who invented it. It is possible that it originated from the South Sea island it was named after. But it is more likely that some bartender in a cold place somewhere in the world created a brightly colored fruity drink and named it after the South Sea paradise.

One thing is clear: The Bora Bora is a mocktail. The word is a fusion of “to mock” and the old familiar “cocktail”. Mocktails are non-alcoholic cocktails, and the Bora Bora is non-alcoholic.

You might not believe it at first, given its appearance and style: yet the only things that belong in the glass here are fruit juices and grenadine. That’s probably exactly why it has become one of the most popular non-alcoholic cocktails! Those who celebrate with a Bora Bora in their hand look no different from “normal” cocktail enthusiasts.
