Jordan Salcito knows her way around a bar. She is not only the founder of RAMONA and Bellus Wines but also Momofuku's Director of Wine Special Projects. She is joining the TODAY team to shake things up with a few of her favorite virgin versions of classic cocktails: a gingery mocktail mule, juniper and tonic, fizzy margarita-inspired limeade and grapefruit spritz.

Best Limeade

Best Limeade

A great margarita is nothing without lime! This homemade lime simple syrup hits all the notes you want from a stellar margarita.

Spicy Ginger Mule

The ginger is still the star of the show in this alcohol-free version of a classic Moscow mule. The lime adds acidity and combining the two in an easy to make syrup ensures balance.

Juniper & Tonic

Juniper & Tonic

Gin & tonics are a classic because the combo allows the botanicals of a great gin to ring through. By subbing juniper tea for gin, you still have juniper and botanicals on full display in this drink without adding any alcohol.

Grapefruit Spritz

This is a riff on our-low proof grapefruit wine spritz — just made to be nonalcoholic! Grapefruit is always refreshing in a spritz and an extra dry ginger ale keeps the drink bright. The bitters ensure balance.
