makes for a more complex drink with greater depth of flavor. Fruit juice is the base ingredient in many nonalcoholic cocktails.

Sparkling apple juice or ginger ale can be used in place of the wine in champagne cocktails to make some interesting beverages, and club soda adds length to many juice based mixtures. Gingerroot, vanilla extract, crushed mint leaves, grenadine or orgeat (almond syrup) all add a layer of complexity. If you have a reaction to alcohol then stay away from Angostura or other bitters which contain some alcohol
