A Wintry spritz that’s full of warming, earthy flavours with none of the alcohol. Sounds like a bit of you? Then you’re in the right place. If you’re searching for an alcohol-free mocktail to try out this week then look no further than the Everleaf Forest spritz. Let’s see how you can make one for yourself.
What is Everleaf Forest?
Everleaf Forest is one of three aperitif’s available from UK based brand, Everleaf. Made using sustainably sourced botanicals, Everleaf Forest is a complex, bittersweet drink with a real earthiness to it. By itself, over ice, it shines as an evening tipple. But, for this piece, I wanted to highlight how wonderfully it pairs with a classic tonic (along with a few extra touches).
Everleaf Forest spritz
Spritzes are so often associated with Spring and Summertime, but I’m on a mission to prove that you can enjoy some of your favourite spritzes at any time of year. It’s just about knowing which spritzes to drink each season. So far, I’ve shared a Winter Aperol Spritz recipe and an Italian spiced spritz recipe (using Amaro Lucano). But, it occurred to me that I’m yet to share an alcohol-free Winter spritz option. Let’s take a look at how to make an Everleaf Forest spritz – the ideal alcohol-free Winter spritz.
150 ml tonic (my go-to is Fever Tree)
Sprig rosemary (if you’re feeling a bit fancy)
Add the Everleaf Forest and top with the tonic.
Add the slice of orange and sprig of rosemary.
Stir the rosemary to release some of the flavours.
Finish with a squeeze of orange juice.
Pair it with these tunes
As for the music pairings for the Everleaf Forest spritz, I’ve chosen songs that reflect what a Wintry afternoon feels like to me. Since the Everleaf Forest spritz has such an earthy yet complex flavour to it, I felt as though it lent itself to a nice bit of jazz. So, I’ve chosen three of my favourites. What do you think?
