Saint Tiki

Using cocktail bitters in mocktails is controversial, since they are typically alcoholic—but they are used in such small quantities that they end up contributing just trace amounts. Bitters are great for adding layers of complexity to an otherwise simple (and alcohol-free) drink. Just make sure your guest isn’t allergic or completely opposed to the idea.
