More and more Australian are giving up booze, so whether it’s party season or Dry July, it pays to ensure there are alcohol-free drinks on hand for your guests. We’ve kept things light and fruity here – a sparkling passionfruit drink, a pineapple-Assam agua fresca, and elegant elderflower and cucumber smash from Sydney’s Bennelong. And once you’ve made your own ginger beer from scratch, you’ll never look back.
