A Tale as Gold as Thyme Non-Alcoholic Cocktail Recipe

No tall tales here, this masterful piece of mixology tastes fantastic with or without alcohol in it.



This cocktail was created by foodie turned mixologist Michelle Merlo, in partnership with Buffalo Rising. A Tale as Gold as Thyme Non-Alcoholic Cocktail Recipe is the second in a series of 6 episodes of the BITTERS cocktail video series, presented by KegWorks.

If you are sober curious, you have options that allow you to prolong the party while staying hydrated and cultivating an atmosphere. A well-engineered concoction will maintain its merits even if spirits are added. We like Seedlip because it’s a non-sugary alternative that can be paired well with juice or stand alone with tonic. For a shaken and not slurred option, this is a Tale as Gold as Thyme.

Take an ounce of Seedlip’s Spice 94 with a blend of juice from golden beets, pineapple, ginger, carrots and turmeric. Shake it up with a few dashes of Fee Brothers Fee Foam, a Vegan-friendly egg white alternative that yields complexity and frothiness. Finally, garnish with some gently smoked thyme. This recipe can also withstand an ounce and a half of mezcal, vodka or gin.
