This is a non-alcoholic version of a unique drink idea from Brussels. Lemon-lime soda replaces the gin for a mellow, neutral base and the addition of almond syrup to the oranges has an almost candy-like quality. Dry citrus notes and a bit of fizz save the drink from being cloyingly sweet. You’ll never miss the alcohol in this virgin cocktail!

What You'll Need

  • 3 thin slices of orange (peel on)
  • 2 teaspoons almond syrup
  • 2 oz. lemon lime soda
  • 1 oz. pink grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 oz. lemonade
  • 1 oz. seltzer water
  • 2 dashes bitters

How to Make It

  1. Using a tablespoon, lightly crush the orange slices in a tall glass. Do not mash the oranges; just crush them enough to release a bit of juice.
  2. Add 1/3 cup ice to the cup, fill with the remaining ingredients, and then stir lightly, keeping the orange slices at the bottom of the glass.
