A crowd-pleasing holiday mocktail


The holiday season comes with a deluge of drinks, but who said every one needs to be spiked?

mocktail recipeThe holiday season comes with a deluge of drinks, but who said every one of them needs to be spiked? The right mocktail will have you feeling festive thanks to its flavor, not its alcohol content.

For a party-worthy beverage we’d be proud to serve, we turned to Junior Merino, New York’s own Liquid Chef. Merino, a master mixologist, has created cocktails for restaurants and bars across the world and also consulted on some of  the cold-pressed juices now offered at The Pump.

Merino’s Fresh Fizz mocktail will add a burst of freshness and flair to your bar menu while allowing your guests to skip the post-party headache. “This is a refreshing and hydrating drink,” says Merino. (It’ll do wonders for your body if you’re alternating between this and the hard stuff.) “It has a surprising burst of light effervescence and a fresh, citrus taste.”

FRESH FIZZ MOCKTAIL RECIPE

2 thin slices of English cucumber

1 oz fresh grapefruit juice
1 oz bottle water
1 1/2 oz club soda

Muddle the cucumber, basil, and agave nectar. Add the water, juices, and ice. Shake. Add the club soda and double strain into a highball glass.

Enjoy!
