I decided to start a new post mostly so I could see what it would be like to do so in the beta site. But I do actually want some ideas here.
I'm off alcohol for a couple months due to some new medications. Such bad timing, here in gin season. And in a period that has me trying to learn more about mixing cocktails. So I've decided to embrace this as an opportunity to work on mixing some truly interesting and delicious non-alcoholic drinks. Last night I muddled cucumber, basil simple syrup, lime and then added club soda (and ice, and of course the drink screamed for gin). Tonight I did a delicious though not particularly creative grapefruit juice, basil mint simple syrup, and club soda. It was lovely. And I used the shaker for it, which always makes me happy.
What are your ideas for NA drinks I could mix for myself or my guests? I'm all up for using herbs, interesting simple syrups (I made an oregano simple syrup today for no particular reason; feel free to give me ideas on using that), different mixers. I like simple drinks, but I also like making a drink with a bit of a process.
Thanks for your ideas!
