Cucumber Goshawk, Hawks Public House
I adore fancy cocktails, but sometimes I have to abstain. Instead of soda or iced tea, I like the fun mocktails at Hawks Public House, crafted with just as much creativity as the boozier ones. The Cucumber Goshawk ($6) is an inspired combination of lime juice, cucumber and Bundaberg Ginger Beer. Aussie soda brand Bundaberg brews with lots of fresh ginger, which adds zing to the puckery lime and balances the fresh cucumber. If you make your own version at home, hop off the wagon and add a splash of rum. 1525 Alhambra Boulevard, http://hawkspublichouse.com.
