Author Notes

Seedlip Grove 42 acts as a stand-in for rum in this tiki-inspired mocktail. The flavor building blocks are pretty simple: ginger and orange notes from the Grove 42, coconut, lime, and a blend of warming spices (cinnamon, coriander, and star anise). The coconut milk is as a lush, lovely bed for these flavors to lie in while the brightness of the lime keeps you alert.

When making the spice syrup, be sure to start this in the morning or even the night before you plan to make this drink to allow for a full 7 to 8 hours of steeping. (Bonus: Waking up to the aroma from this spice blend is a great way to start your day.) And when breaking up your spices, don’t grind them into a powder—instead, make sure the cinnamon, coriander, and star anise are crushed to save yourself a headache when it comes time to strain. —Harper Fendler
