Something a little bit different…
This cocktail was TASTY. It may not have been Chris’ favorite (though I think he liked it a lot), but it was definitely in my top 5. But there’s something very different about this one. Something I’m not sure we’ve ever done before for a drink on this blog. Can you spot the difference? (Hint: you can’t tell in the photos.)
This drink is 100% non-alcoholic. Yep, it’s not a “cocktail” at all. But don’t let that fool you – it is truly delicious!
Like many of our drinks, this one was inspired by a trip to the grocery store. We were a bit over-optimistic and bought a watermelon hoping it’d be in season… only to find it ripe, but under-flavored. Not deterred, Chris tossed in a touch of salt and made it into a delicious syrup that worked absolutely brilliantly beside the ginger beer in this drink.
But what about the kick?
I also found that the “zip” from the ginger beer almost took the place of the alcohol, adding that extra kick that many mocktails lack. Very, very good.
Got kids? Got a family BBQ coming up? Gotta drive home? Consider this “mocktail” – you will not be disappointed!
