Give your liver a break and try my non-alcoholic cocktail today at Tales of the Cocktail!

NOLitA Heat

3-4 jalapeno slices
1/2 ounce limejuice
1/3 ounce Prickly Pear syrup
2 ounces mango juice
Fre alcohol-removed Brut sparkling wine
1 skewered whole jalapeño or Thai chili
1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Rim chilled champagne flute with sugar, set aside. Muddle jalapeno slices, limejuice and a pinch of sugar in a mixing glass. Add ice and mango juice, shake vigorously, and strain into the champagne flute. Slowly pour in Prickly Pear syrup, allowing it to settle on the bottom of the glass. Gently top with Fre Brut, and garnish with a skewered jalapeño or Thai chili on the side of the glass.
