Man of Many Faces Raspberry Ginger Rendezvous

A photo of a yellow-ish drink in a champagne flute, with raspberries floating at the top. A backyard is visible out the window behind it, and overlay text lists the name of the drink, the series it's inspired by, and the main ingredients.

For Man of Many Faces, we wanted something light and fun. I took inspiration from the lavish lifestyles of the characters—I wanted something that looked like a fancy cocktail, or the finest champagne. But, since our characters are all in elementary school, I also wanted something nonalcoholic.

I went with a ginger ale base, since it has a similar color and texture to champagne, and combined it with limeade for a more complex flavor. I floated a few raspberries on top, for an elegant twist that definitely makes it worthy of a Friday night date.

Ingredients

  • 1 part Ginger ale
  • 1 part limeade
  • 2 raspberries

Instructions 

  1. Fill your glass half-full with ginger ale.
  2. Fill the rest of the way with the limeade.
  3. Add raspberries, and enjoy!

Best served in champagne flutes.
