Radicchio Syrup (see note)
- In a small pot, bring the water and sugar to a boil. Remove from the heat. Add the radicchio, rosemary and lemon juice. Let sit for 20 minutes. Strain the syrup and let cool. Compost the radicchio and rosemary. Refrigerate the syrup.
- In a tall glass, combine the non-alcoholic gin, chilled radicchio syrup and lemon juice. Mix. Add a few ice cubes and top off with tonic water. Garnish with long wedges of radicchio leaves, if desired.
You will have enough radicchio syrup to prepare 6 mocktails. The syrup will keep for 1 week in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
