Designated driver's delight: Mock Appletini

'Tis the season for festive holiday parties, and while a well-stocked bar is a key element for any successful celebration, it's also important to offer the designated drivers something a little more special than plain soda or sparkling water.

Over the rest of the season, we'll be bringing you some scrumptious nonalcoholic holiday quaffs that will earn rave reviews from drinkers and non-drinkers alike.

Today's teetotaler treat:

Mock Appletini


2 oz freshly pressed apple juice (green or gold apples)
1/2 oz simple syrup
1/4 oz lemon juice
Granulated sugar for rimming
Apple slice for garnish

Add apple juice, simple syrup, and lemon juice to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass rimmed with granulated sugar. Garnish with an apple slice.

Here's to a happy—and safe—holiday season, ladies!
