Ritual Zero Proof Non-Alcoholic Whiskey Blinker Recipe

Ritual Zero Proof Non-Alcoholic Whiskey Blinker Recipe

Grapefruit and whiskey.

 

Not exactly a match made in heaven. At least that’s what we thought. That is, until we discovered a little-known cocktail called “The Blinker”.

 

As it turns out, the Blinker dates back nearly a century. Which isn’t all that surprising, considering that it’s a 3-ingredient cocktail, which were all the rage in post-Prohibition America. But what is surprising is the idea of blending smokey whiskey with fresh grapefruit juice. Sure, we love the lemon kick in our favorite non-alcoholic whiskey sour recipe. And of course, tequila and grapefruit make for a wonderful Paloma. But whiskey and grapefruit? To be honest we were a little skeptical…

 

That said, the more we read about the Blinker, the more it started to sound appealing. So, we did what any good lover of non-alcoholic drinks would do – we crafted our very own Alcohol-Free Blinker Recipe!

 

Now as we mentioned, the Blinker is a 3-ingredient cocktail. And when it comes to creating a non-alcoholic version of a 3-ingredient cocktail, things can get somewhat tricky, as the alcohol tends to play a very flavor-forward role in these libations. Thankfully, we had just finished our full review of Ritual Zero Proof Alcohol Alternatives, and had been super impressed with their non-alcoholic whiskey. Knowing it was just the right blend of flavors to carry the weight of this whiskey-based cocktail, we decided to make it the star player in our Non-Alcoholic Blinker Recipe.
