This soft cocktail is a great option for those looking for a spicy kick in their drink. The ginger provides a soothing element apart from the spice that can cool you down. The non-alcoholic bitters provides another layer of flavor while balancing the sweetness of the Sprite. You can use the candied ginger as a stirrer to add more spice and sweetness to the drink.


  • 3 pcs ginger, muddled
  • 20 ml calamansi juice
  • 15 ml Giffard Bitters
  • Sprite (to top)


  1. Muddle ginger in mason jar.
  2. Add calamansi juice and Giffard bitters.
