This sophisticated alcohol-free cocktail stands out from the sea of fruit-juicy or overly sweet “mocktails” out there. And it’s so easy to make, with all the delicious 0% alcohol “gin” brands available nowadays. (We’re partial to Lyre’s London Spirit.) Enjoy it with a clear head and a calm outlook.
2½ ounces (scant ⅓ cup) non alcoholic “gin”
2 tablespoons finely chopped cucumber, plus a thin slice for garnish, if desired)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice plus a thin strip of zest for garnish if desired)
½ tablespoon simple syrup
1 (20mg) packet Caliper Hemp dissolvable powder
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled “up” glass. Garnish with lime zest and a cucumber slice, if desired, and enjoy.
