A softer drink.

Sometimes people can’t drink alcohol. For example, maybe a lady is pregnant. Maybe she’s your wife. That’s cool. That doesn’t mean she should have boring beverages.

The most difficult thing with non-alcoholic cocktails is balance. It’s all too easy to go sweet with juices and syrups. I find that spice is a good counter to sweetness. Bitters are too.

Autumn's Reward

I’m also trying to launch a career as a hand model.

Autumn’s Reward
2 oz apple cider
½ oz orgeat (B.G. Reynolds’)
2 dashes aromatic bitters
3 oz ginger beer (Reed’s Extra Ginger)
nutmeg
Shake cider, orgeat and bitters with ice and strain over fresh ice in a double old-fashioned glass. Top with ginger beer and two twists of lemon. Grate fresh nutmeg over the top.

Note: Many bitters contain alcohol. If this is a concern, consult your doctor or your sponsor or consider non-alcoholic bitters such as Fee Brothers.
