BATH, CANDLES, AND COCKTAILS
Perhaps it’s still ingrained in our heads from when we were kids, but bath time remains a sacred routine for many adults. The tub has become our own personal sanctuary, there for us whenever we need a reset. Everyone has their own ritual. Perhaps you break out the Buddha Bar and light some scented candles. Or drop in a glitter bath bomb and queue up that guided meditation. Or simply relax with a washcloth over your face.
However you choose to indulge, this is your space. And a cool refreshing cocktail is often the perfect accompaniment. Fortunately with these zero proof cocktails, you can enjoy bath time without the comedown.
Ruby Rose Spritzer
This bright, herbaceous beverage pairs perfectly with a hot bath. We make it zero proof by substituting our Gin Alternative for the real thing. It’s got a light sparkle and sweetness, while the scent of the rosemary invites you to relax. Just be sure to mix up a few servings in advance, so you don’t have to go for a refill mid-bath.
2 oz. Ritual Gin Alternative
3 oz. ruby red grapefruit juice
1 oz. rosemary simple syrup
Sparkling white grape juice, tonic or soda water
Grapefruit slices and additional rosemary sprig
Combine the first three ingredients in a shaker with ice, and shake vigorously. Strain into a tall glass with additional ice and top with sparkling grape juice, tonic or soda. Garnish with grapefruit slices and rosemary.
Another refreshing beverage that will cool you off after that hot water has you sweating. The lemon has a nice tang, but not enough to harsh your mellow. We swap in our whiskey substitute for the hard stuff and recommend garnishing with the mint leaves for more bath-time aromatics. This makes a nice portion, which is perfect if you’re really kicking back in the tub.
