Designated driver? Going back to work after lunch? Having a party with lots of teens and tweens or people who just don't want alcohol? When a cocktail isn't het right choice, it's time to enjoy a mocktail: delectable, refreshing soda-and juice-based blends that forgo the alcohol but keep the flavor. And there's more than a standard-issue Virgin Mary or a Shirley Temple on the menu here. Kester Thompson, a top bartender, understands that you can't just forget the tequila in the margarita or the rum in the daiquiri; the flavor won't be right that way. Instead, he's whipped up a host of gourmet sensations, some meant for a sophisticated palate, others designed to please a thirsty child.
You'll also find advice on making your own sodas from scratch and ideas for substituting fruits, vegetables, and other flavors to suit your own pantry and preferences. Beautiful color photos throughout provide attractive ideas for serving these mocktails--so they look as great as they taste.
