This is perhaps the most famous non-alcoholic cocktail and, if you’re having an alcohol-free January, it is well worth trying. It has a pleasing sharpness which also makes it the kind of drink you only want one of, which I find is a good way to help it feel like a special drink.
Shake 2 shots lemon juice, ½ shot grenadine, ½ shot sugar syrup with ice. Fill a glass with ice and strain the liquid into it. Top with ginger ale and garnish with a slice of orange.
