Berry and Ghia Sour Mocktail

Jump to Recipe

Mocktails are exploding this year, and I love it. While I do drink alcohol, I’m all for a shift towards sobriety, decreased alcohol consumption, and healthier choices. I think it’s awesome that I’ve been seeing non alcoholic spirits, wines and aperitifs start popping up in my favorite boutique grocery stores and on Instagram. I’ve also seen more mocktail options at restaurants and bars, and even bars that only serve mocktails. It’s all pretty cool. So this year for New Year’s Eve I decided to drop a mocktail recipe. It’s a berry and Ghia sour, and I thought it was delicious. Hopefully you agree.

What’s Ghia and where can I get it?

Ghia is a spirit free apéritif brand. Their products are made with botanical extracts, resulting in a complex, bitter and interesting flavor. They have a few different offerings including their signature apéritif and their le spritz, which are small single serving cans of bubbly apéritifs that come in different flavors. I opted for their OG le spritz. Mostly out of cheapness, if I’m being honest. A full bottle of their apéritif costs $38. I just didn’t want to make that investment when I wasn’t sure if I was even going to like it. I was delighted to find single cans of their le spritz at a local snack shop (Sip and Snack, if you’re based in LA or just curious).

The shop had a similar drink from Figlia, too. I bought both so that I could experiment for this recipe without spending too much. Both recipes were delightful and I may do another recipe with Figlia down the line. But right now we’ll focus on Ghia. If you can’t find single cans in your area, you can buy a 4-pack on Amazon or a 12-pack on Ghia’s website. Their website also has a handy store locator if you want to buy in person!

A quick note on the le spritz. It’s made to be enjoyed on its own. Personally, I liked it better with a few additions. Not because it’s not good, but because I’m not the type of person who drinks aperitifs on their own in general. My version is more like a cocktail (but without the booze, obviously), in my opinion. It’s fruitier and lighter but with a really nice bitter complexity from the Ghia. You can also make a few drinks with a single can, which is nice!

Do I need any other specialty items?

Yes, sorry! This mocktail also includes a berry cordial. I used one from Sōm, that I think is delicious. Feel free to use whatever berry cordial you’d like, though! You can definitely find them from other brands or make your own. If you’re totally lost on what a cordial even is, it’s basically a concentrated syrup made with sugar and vinegar that’s meant to be diluted. I also used angostura bitters for this drink. That’s pretty easy to find, though. It should be available at most liquor stores. Apart from that it’s just tonic and lemon juice!
