Charleston Wine + Food

Let’s face it, junk food is a staple on any tailgate table. Luckily, Morgan Hurley of Mex 1 Coastal Cantina is sharing an alcohol-free digestif to help combat that game-day bloat. Plus, he’s sharing a few tricks to spice up your mocktail!


Pama Pomegranate Juice 1 oz

Ginger Beer 5 oz

1/4 squeeze of lime

Garnished with a wedge of lime and some pomegranate seeds.

Grab a copper mug or rocks glass and fill with ice. Top with Ginger Beer, Pomegranate Juice and squeeze of lime (as well as options below if y’all want to include) and stir.

If you want to add a little something extra to your drink: 

Option 1: Add 6 drops Bittermens Hellfire Habanero Shrub- While technically this is alcohol-based, it is more for the digestif side of things. It provides a nice little heat to the back of the cocktail.

Option 2: Ginger & Habanero Simple Syrup- Add a 1/2 oz to 1 oz of the ginger & Habanero Simple Syrup to provide a bit extra digestif properties to the cocktail while also providing a bit of heat on the back end. To make this, add 1 cup of sugar to 1 cup of water and slowly bring to a boil. Once it is at a boil, drop in one habanero cut in half and one stalk of ginger sliced into 1-inch cubes (about 5-6 cubes) and take the simple syrup off the burner. Pull the habaneros out after about 5 minutes, but let the ginger soak for about 30 minutes. Strain, bottle and keep in the fridge.
