This drink combines traditional bar staples into a non-alcoholic drink that's both tasty and elegant.

Use a good-quality orgeat that contains orange flower water for to add the most high notes and complexity to the drink. If you can't find one, use my ridiculously simple recipe for making your own orgeat at home.
