NON_ALCOHOLIC_VARIATIONS

Is there a non-alcoholic version of Adonis' Chariot that I can make?

While the unique character of Adonis' Chariot comes from its alcohol ingredients, a non-alcoholic version can be crafted using non-alcoholic substitutes for tequila, vermouth, and sherry. Use a non-alcoholic spirit that mimics tequila for the base, and seek out non-alcoholic versions of sweet vermouth and sherry. Remember to include the orange bitters for that signature flavor.

FAQ

Why is shaking preferred over stirring for Adonis' Chariot?

Shaking Adonis' Chariot, as opposed to stirring, is preferred to ensure a well-chilled cocktail while also achieving an optimal dilution and integration of flavors. The vigorous action of shaking helps to blend the dense sweetness of the sherry and vermouth with the robustness of the tequila, creating a smooth and cohesive drink.
