In this mocktail recipe, the spiced pineapple syrup - steeped with cloves, allspice, peppercorns and vanilla - replaces the flavors lost by omitting the rum.

  1. 2 ounces fresh orange juice
  2. 1 3/4 ounces Spiced Pineapple Syrup
  3. 1 ounce fresh lemon juice
  4. 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  5. 3 dashes of chocolate bitters (optional - see Note)
  6. Crushed ice
  7. 1 pineapple wedge and 1 maraschino cherry, for garnish
  1. In a cocktail shaker, combine the orange juice, Spiced Pineapple Syrup, lemon and lime juices and bitters. Fill the shaker with crushed ice and shake well. Pour (don’t strain) into a chilled tiki mug and garnish the drink with the pineapple wedge and cherry.
Notes The bitters here are alcohol-based. For a completely nonalcoholic cocktail, leave them out.
