"I know that apples and ginger go well together, but my wife makes a ginger-and-orange doughnut that is nothing short of exquisite, so I combined the three flavors for this mocktail," Jonny Raglin says. He makes it with a gastrique, a syrup of vinegar, sugar and, typically, fruit. Like a real cocktail, it has a sugared rim. (Note: The bitters in the drink are alcohol-based. For a completely nonalcoholic cocktail, leave them out.)

Ingredients

  • 1 orange wedge
  • Sugar
  • Ice
  • 3 ounces chilled apple cider
  • 1 1/2 ounces fresh orange juice
  • 1 ounce Ginger Gastrique
  • 3 dashes of Fee Brothers Old Fashion bitters, (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Moisten the rim of a coupe with the orange and coat with sugar. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the remaining ingredients and shake well. Strain into the coupe.
