This fruity but flavourful alcohol-free cocktail takes it’s inspiration from a beautiful modern classic of the same name, created by head barman, Tom Byrne, while he was working at the now, sadly closed, Charlotte’s Bistro in Chiswick.

Ingredients

40ml Caleño Light & Zesty (one full shot, one 15ml)

15ml Three Spirit

15ml Lemon Juice (¼ of a lemon)

1 Spoonful Apricot Jam

1 Spoonful Runny Honey

Method

In a Boston glass, using the jigger to measure, add the Caleño and Three Spirit.

Cut your lemon into quarters and squeeze the juice of ¼ for roughly 15ml of lemon juice /or use your jigger to measure 15ml if using pre-squeezed juice.

Stir in a big spoonful of apricot jam and a big spoonful of the honey; be sure to stir vigorously to help mix them in.

Fill glass with cubed ice and seal using the tin.

Shake HARD for 10-15 seconds.

Open and strain into a rocks glass.

Fill with fresh cubed ice /or the ice from your shaker.

History

The original French Riviera celebrates and accentuates the complex, fruity flavours of fine French cognac. To create an alcohol-free version of this drink, we utilise a distinct blend of no-alcohol spirits in a harmonious balance with the drink’s characteristic sweeteners; honey and apricot jam.

We use the innate stone-fruit tastes present in Caleño Light & Zesty alcohol-free spirit to work in tandem with the apricot jam. We pair this with the rum-like flavours of Three Spirit to give some extra complexity to this fruity cocktail and help smooth out the floral, caramel-sweetness of the honey. Like its alcoholic equivalent, the drink is finished with a splash of lemon juice and a slice of dried orange to add some much-needed citrus notes. This combination pays fitting homage to the original drink and just like its boozy predecessor, it rings with the essence of the sunny south of France.
