Little Prince (Non-Alcoholic)

This is a nice mocktail--similar to an Apricot Daisy--if you can find apricot nectar. I couldn't so I got apricot preserves and warmed it in a sauce pan with equal parts water, then strained out the solids. This worked like a charm. There was strong apricot flavor, a lemon zip, and that fun fall cider sparkle on the tongue.

The look of the drink is great, too. Definitely do this one this fall.

One note, there was a huge error in the directions for this drink (first to place all ingredients in a mixing glass and second to shake all ingredients on ice.) It made no sense at all. Below you'll find how the recipe should read.
  • 2 oz. sparkling cider
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 oz. apricot nectar
  • lemon twist
Shake lemon juice and apricot nectar in a shaker with ice and pour into an Old Fashioned glass. Top with sparkling cider and stir gently. Garnish with the lemon twist.
