Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Put all ingredients except mint sprig in a cocktail shaker and shake until well blended, about 10 seconds. Pour drink with ice into a tumbler or a snifter. Garnish with mint sprig.

  • Note: Nutritional analysis is per mocktail.

  • Bar Essentials: Have these on hand for mixing great mocktails.

  • Simple Syrup: Equal parts sugar and water, heated until the sugar dissolves. (Your yield will be the same as the amount of water you use.)

  • Lemon-Lime Juice: Equal parts freshly squeezed lemon and lime juice, for adding acidity in a flash.

  • Fresh Lemons, Limes, and Oranges: To make juice, wedges for squeezing or moistening the rim of a glass, or twists of zest for extra citrus aroma.

  • Superfine Sugar: Dissolves easily and makes a nice garnish on the rim of a glass.

  • Fresh Herbs: Basil, mint, and tarragon add complexity, texture, and visual appeal.

  • Purchased Ice: For a big party, it's hard to make enough ice at home. Besides cooling, ice helps blend flavors in the shaker.
