Squid Mixes: Tweety Bird
A tweety bird combines orange juice, grapefruit juice, pineapple juice, lemon-lime soda and bitter lemon soda with a pineapple garnish. I got my recipe from Zero-Proof Cocktails by Liz Scott. The author recommends the drink as a margarita substitute with Mexican or other Latin American fare. I would go further and say the flavor is superior to most margaritas.
Zero-Proof is fun, more realistic than other mocktail books. While Scott stresses that fresh juices are best she concedes that store-bought will do in a pinch. She also makes suggestions for alcoholic additions for several recipes, though not this one.
