Juicy Julep

Hot days sometimes call for refreshing non-alcoholic drinks. And sometimes you want to lay off the booze without looking like you need to lay off the booze. This one fits the bill. Anybody who sees the mint in this drink will assume you have some kind of Mojito. And mint and ginger ale give the cocktail an almost-alcoholic zing. Raspberry syrup is what makes it work, though, and it is responsible for the brilliant pink color. This non-alcoholic drink is perfect for using up all those tiki ingredients before they go bad.
  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. orange juice
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. raspberry syrup
  • 5 crushed mint leaves
  •  mint sprig
  • ginger ale
Combine juices, crushed min and raspberry syrup in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a highball glass. Top with ginger ale and garnish with mint sprig.
