This tangy fruit potion is offered as tribute to young friends in San Francisco who never fail to ask adults who are about to shake and pour: “Will there be mocktails?” This drink is served in an adult container. “Kids? Be careful of the glass, please.”
Note: There’s an alcoholic version of this for adult drinkers.
CM & E
2 ounces orange juice
1 ounce lime juice
1 tablespoon strawberry jam
Pour all the ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake thoroughly until combined and chilled. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a sliced strawberry.
Note: For mixologists wanting a “loaded” version, add 1 1/2 ounces of vodka or light rum before shaking.
Tasting notes: This mocktail, with its high fruit profile, is brightly distinct and enjoyable.
