Nolan Morehouse asks:
I want to make some mocktails. Any recipes that you recommend?
What I dislike about most mocktails is that they tend to be cloyingly sweet. What I tried to do with this list below is find complex mocktails with some bitter elements, herbal notes, and tartness, while staying away from the overly sweet things that people try to pass off as mocktails. The best real cocktails aren’t overly sweet, so the best mocktails shouldn’t be, either.

Nolan did a write up afterward of making a few of these mocktails! Here is Nolan:
I chose two from a list of mocktails Chuck gave me; They were the Moscow Mule and the vinegar shrubs.
