Perfect drink pairings for pancake day: A non-alcoholic brunch menu to celebrate Shrove Tuesday.


2-minute read

Whether you’re going to squeeze in pancakes before work or you’re planning a pancake feast for dinner, switch up your Orange juice or glass of wine for a non-alcoholic Seedlip cocktail such as our Espresso MartiNO, a boozeless version of an Espresso Martini, or a citrus flavoured non-alcoholic Champagne.


Below you’ll find our recommendations for drink pairings for some of the most popular Pancake Day fillings including Lemon and sugar to Maple syrup. If you want to go big this year, we hope these ideas will help you create a bottomless [non-alcoholic] brunch menu for Shrove Tuesday that’s quick, easy and entertaining.

Lemon & Sugar, pair w/ Æcorn Dry spritz

A classic combination needs a knockout, but simple cocktail recipe and the Æcorn Dry Spritz is exactly that. Floral and crisp, Æcorn Dry has a refreshing flavour with a complex finish of Black Tea and Oak that is delicious alongside Lemon juice. Quick and easy to make, if you like to keep your pancake toppings fuss free, this is the cocktail for you.


Æcorn Dry: 50ml
Sparkling water: Top


Wine glass
Garnish w/ Lemon slice


Build over ice & stir

Maple syrup, pair w/ Espresso MartiNO

Pair maple syrup pancakes with our take on a non-alcoholic Espresso Martini and elevate your breakfast to something much more special. The shot of espresso is a welcome addition too in the morning and the warm spice notes in Seedlip Spice 94 complements the sweetness of the syrup.

Shot of espresso: 50ml
Sugar Syrup: 25ml


Garnish w/ 3x Coffee Beans


Shake in a cocktail shaker & double strain.

Savoury filling, pair w/ Rosemary Booch

Not all pancakes have to be sweet. If you’re a fan of savoury pancake fillings, ham and cheese or spinach and mushroom to name but a very few, then your cocktail needs to match. Our Rosemary Booch has herbal, grassy notes thanks to the addition of Seedlip Garden 108 and the Kombucha adds depth and complexity.


Seedlip Garden 108: 50ml
Kombucha: Top


Rocks glass
Garnish w/ Rosemary sprig


Build over ice & garnish.

Nutella, pair w/ NOgroni

If you’re a fan of a Chocolate and Orange combination, this pairing of Nutella with NOgroni, our twist on the classic Negroni, will tick a few boxes for you. The bold and bittersweet mix can stand up to the richness of the Nutella and the addition of Chinotto gives the drink a moreish citrus flavour.


Seedlip Spice 94: 25ml
Æcorn Bitter: 25ml
Æcorn Aromatic Red: 25ml


Stemless wine
Garnish w/ Orange slice or wedge


Pour over ice & stir.

To make pancake day extra special, why not make our elegant 1542 Vintage to enjoy a non-alcoholic alternative to Champagne? It’s a citrus-based cocktail that uses Seedlip Grove 42, verjus, Honey and soda. Whether you choose to use summer berries such as Strawberries and Raspberries, or autumn fruits such as Blackberries, this sophisticated pairing is one to try.
