FOOD TIP OF THE DAY: Alcohol-Free Cocktails & Recipe
For guests who need a lift, this cocktail was made with sparkling grapefruit Hiball energy drink instead of regular soda.
|Instead of relegating non-drinking guests to an evening of mineral water, create a special alcohol-free cocktail menu to make their evening festive. Give it a sophisticated name for cachet. One option is the “Great Wall,” a combination of brewed jasmine tea and ginger ale. Brew a pot of jasmine tea and cool it in a pitcher like iced tea (1 teaspoon of tea per 2/3 cup water). Then mix 2/3 cup tea in a tall glass with 1/3 regular or diet ginger ale, ice, and a twist of lemon. This special drink will make your guest feel special, too…and also is a good option for guests who’ve reached their limit with regular cocktails. You can find seasonal cocktails with a kick in the Cocktails & Spirits Section of THE NIBBLE online magazine.|
