In my first mocktail article, I did a roundup of my experiences out at restaurants in Atlanta. Since it's raging hot and humid here in Atlanta, I am feeling for my prego friends who can't kick back with a nice cool cocktail. So here's a roundup of some delicious booze free beverages you can make at home.
Booze Free Bee's Knees (the boozy version is one of my faves)
2 oz tonic water
¾ oz fresh lemon juice
½ oz Clover honey syrup (mix 2 parts honey with 1 part water)
In a mixing glass, add ingredients. Fill with ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon disc or twist.
2 oz nectar of your choice (peach for a classic belllini, I also like pear)
enough sparkling cider to fill the rest of your glass
Virgin Dark & Stormy (another Adventurous Tastes fave)
8 ounces ginger beer (it's not alcoholic)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp molasses
Directions: Combine all ingredients over crushed ice in glass. Stir and garnish with lime wedge.
Virgin Grapefruit Mojito
Frozen Mango Mockolada
Virgin Pimm's Cup
Virgin Mary's (A bloody mary is one of those drinks that honestly tastes the same sans alcohol. I like mine extra spicy)
