2023 Let’s Get Blitzen: Cocktail Advent Calendar – Day 3 – Nice List Gimlet. For the first Sober Sunday of this year’s calendar, I wanted to highlight one of my favourite non-alcoholic spirit brands, Ceder’s. For this non-alcoholic interpretation of the classic gin gimlet, I selected Ceder’s Classic. The Classic is fresh and floral with a smooth palate and delicate finish.

Freshly squeezed lime juice and spicy clementine cordial combine with Ceder’s Classic to deliver a puckering, endlessly drinkable zero-proof cocktail. The bright citrus notes offer a lovely counterpoint to the woody juniper underpinning of Ceder’s.
Ceder’s was created in 2017 by husband-and-wife entrepreneurs, Craig Hutchison and Maria Sehlstrom.
Ceder’s recipe has been developed by distilling both classic gin botanicals like juniper with more exotic botanicals like rooibos and buchu, sourced from the Cederberg Mountains of the Western Cape in South Africa – where Ceder’s gets its name.
The Ceder’s range is comprised of four distinct flavour profiles, each with a foundation of 18 different botanicals that are carefully curated to achieve the desired distilled non-alcoholic expression of gin. Coriander and juniper are core botanicals featured in each of the styles. Once curation is complete, the Ceder’s distilling team work in small batches to extract the botanicals for each of the four expressions.
These meticulously harvested and distilled flavours are then blended together to create the 4 distinct flavour profiles of the range: Classic, Crisp, Rose and Wild. Each of the profiles contains zero sugar, zero calories, and 0% alcohol – while remaining full of flavour.
Having quality non-alcoholic options on hand is essential for holiday entertaining – whether your guests are driving, enjoy a sober lifestyle, or simply want to consume in moderation. I feel strongly that those choosing not to imbibe shouldn’t have to survive off fruit juice or sparkling water, ensure they’re truly part of the celebration by shaking up a thoughtfully composed spirit-free cocktail like this Nice List Gimlet.
Join me on my Instagram Stories tonight at 5 pm Eastern for a step-by-step tutorial on how to shake up this Sober Sunday cocktail in Virtual Happy Hour!
