If you are thinking you would like to de-mocktail this, and add some alcohol, we’ve got you covered! We played with adding several spirits to this drink: rums (spiced, dark, blackstrap, aged), whiskeys (Canadian, Scotch, Bourbon), and vodka. At the end of the day, the clear favorite was the blackstrap rum, as the molasses-y flavor added a really fun extra depth of flavor.
