DharMag March 2016 Nipple Cripple mocktail recipe: how to make a simple and super refreshing non-alcoholic drink

Mocktails recipes for summer, Nipple Cripple recipe, non alcoholic cocktail Too often we tend to liquidate non-alcoholic cocktails as silly mixtures or even worse as a jumble of the most improbable juices and infusions. And too often it’s true, because to make excellent mocktails serve imagination and top notch ingredients.

In a soft drink you don’t have the sweetness of the rum to caress the palate, you won’t find those delicious, resinous gin’s aromas that make everything , you will not find the warm comfort of vodka.

Yeah, a word without spirits seems dark, scary, unstressed, but despite this, the Nipple Cripple will change your mind and bring a ray of light and you won’t find a drop of alcohol in it!

Raspberries, ingredients for simple non-alcoholic cocktails with fresh fruit And because they are one of our favorite fruit, we started from fresh raspberries, indeed raspberry nectar.

Never, never underestimate the charm of raspberries when you want to make cocktails: their sweet and delicate touch is a perfect base to start creating and can give a magic flavor to your drinks. Even a simple lemonade with raspberries works wonders!

But let’s go to our non-alcoholic drink: we will use raspberries’ nectar, cranberry juice, ginger and soda water with a few drops of orgeat syrup to close the circle.

That’s all, the cocktail is already done: easy and quick to prepare, but once you have tried it you won’t stop drinking.

You can drink the Nipple Cripple cocktail as a refreshing drink at every hour or even if as a light and juicy aperitif. If you want a more robust drink, just add 4 cl of vodka.
