Sober October doesn’t have to end, and with these seasonal booze-free cocktails, you won’t want it to!
CHICO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 28, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — It’s that time of year, crisp sweater weather. As autumnal colors parade around the country, is there anything more satisfying than sitting around a blazing fire pit? No, we didn’t think so! So throw another log on the fire while savoring one of these Fall-inspired non-alcoholic cocktails, perfect for extending your Sober October into November and beyond!
Even those abstaining from booze can enjoy a classic Old Fashioned cocktail, thanks to non-alcoholic whiskey and zero-proof bitters. One minor tweak to the original recipe gives this NA version richness, and depth, and all the fall feels of maple syrup in place of the traditional sugar cube. The linchpin in any Old Fashioned, the bitters bring the whole thing together, with All The Bitter Aromatic bitters adding a healthy dose of spice.
There are many excellent booze-free whiskies on the market now—two of our favorites are Spiritless Kentucky 74 and Free Spirits Bourbon.
2 1/2 ounces of non-alcoholic whiskey
1/4 ounce maple syrup
Four full droppers All The Bitter Aromatic bitters
Orange peel twist garnish
Add non-alcoholic whiskey, bitters, and maple syrup to a mixing glass with ice and stir until chilled.
Strain into a rocks glass over one giant ice cube.
Garnish with an orange peel, first expressing the oils over the drink.
Make it a mindfully low-alcohol cocktail.

1 1/2 ounce red verjus (or tart cherry juice)
1-ounce blackberry herb shrub (see below for recipe)
Five full droppers All The Bitter Aromatic bitters
Brew a cup of strong black tea and let it steep for 10 minutes (the goal is bitter, astringent tannin), then chill.

Blackberry Herb Shrub Recipe
Place 2 cups of blackberries in a mason jar or glass bowl. Add 1 cup white sugar, 1/2 ounce All The Bitter Aromatic bitters, ten rosemary sprigs, 2 tbsp. of cracked black peppercorns and a pinch of salt. Muddle everything together. Add 8 ounces of apple cider vinegar and 2 ounces of balsamic vinegar, mix well, then cover and let sit in the fridge for 24 hours: strain and bottle. A shrub can last several months and is wonderfully mixed with sparkling water.
Note: Element Blueberry Rosemary Shrub works well instead of making your own.
2 ounces of unfiltered apple juice
3/4 ounce lemon juice, fresh
1/2 ounce orange simple syrup (or non-alc triple sec)
One teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
Three full droppers of All The Bitter Orange bitters

Orange Simple Syrup Recipe

Remove from heat, let cool, strain, and bottle. Orange simple syrup will last in the fridge for a month and makes a tremendous triple-sec replacement.
Make it mindfully low-alcohol
Get traditional with this one and replace 1 ounce of apple cider with 1 ounce of cognac.
