Sparkling Apple Cider Mocktail

Ingredients:  – Sparkling apple cider – Ginger simple syrup – An orange – A lemon – Raw sugar (for garnish)

Pour raw sugar into a shallow dish. Run a slice of lemon or orange around the rim of the glass, then dip it into the raw sugar. Add ice to the glass and set it aside.

Combine ginger syrup, orange juice, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.

Shake well and strain into your prepared glass. Top with sparkling apple cider.

Using a vegetable peeler, cut a long strip of orange peel from the orange. Squeeze the orange peel over the glass to express the oil from the orange peel into your drink.

Garnish with a curl of orange peel or apple slices. Stir, sip, and enjoy!

It’s super easy to make your own ginger syrup from fresh ginger! It only takes 10 minutes and 3 ingredients.
