With a lot of people feeling under the weather this time of year, the sight of a cocktail might be the last thing anyone needs. But if you still want the fun of a night out without the boozy implications, this mocktail might be just the thing for you. In the video above we headed over to the W in New York's Union Square to join Olives NY's Beverage manager Tom Favorule to make this healthy concoction.
