Mocktails – The Pussy Foot

Angostura Bitters,  really add a certain something to a drink. Without Angostura Bitters this drink is known in England as a St Clement’s from the nursery rhyme. My children used to drink this and sing the rhyme too. They had Shirley Temples mocktail when we went out for dinner here. Bitter lemon which is actually not bitter at all can be found in Italian grocery shops quite easily.
Oranges and lemons say the bells of St Clement’s.
I owe you five farthings say the bells of St Martin’s.
When will you pay me say the bells of Old Bailey.
When I grow rich, said the bells of Shoreditch.
When will that be, said the bells of Stepney.
I do not know, said the great bell of Bow. 
For a St Clement’s simply take a tall glass about 8 oz and add half orange juice and bitter lemon to make a refreshing drink. I found the Pussy Foot recipe on this old Angostura Bitters packaging. To make, just add 2 dashes of Angostura Bitters to half the amount of orange juice and bitter lemon and serve over ice to make it a Pussy Foot.
