Grove 42, Carrot & Sage Non-Alcoholic Cocktail – Dani Valent

A virgin cocktail made with the world's first non-alcoholic spirit

Grove 42 is an innovative non-alcoholic distilled spirit from Seedlip. Flavoured with citrus and spice, the bitter orange and lemongrass notes in the spirit are echoed nicely by the sweet carrot cordial. The idea behind this recipe is that it’s a great way to use carrot peel and avoid food waste. You can make it with peel, whole carrots, or a mixture.
