This non-alcoholic cocktail is a riff on the simple Southside. Non-alcoholic spirits often use either capsicum or menthol to simulate the burn of alcohol. I find that crafting a recipe that plays to that factor helps zero-proof options come closer to replacing their alcoholic counterparts.
Pro Tip: Don’t miss my full review of DHŌS Non-Alcoholic Spirits, which also features additional recipes!
- 2 oz. DHŌS Gin-Free
- ¾ oz. lemon juice
- ½ oz. simple syrup
- 8-10 leaves mint (reserve one for garnish)
- Combine Gin-Free, lemon juice, simple syrup, and mint leaves in a shaker tin with ice.
- Shake until chilled.
- Double strain into chilled coupe glass.
- Garnish with a single mint leaf.
P.S. – There is no substitution for moderation, but there are two supplements that I take when I’m doing a reset. Traditional Medicinals Organic Detox Tea and this Liver Cleanse Detox and Repair supplement. Just keep in mind that I’m not a doctor, and this isn’t medical advice.
