Rim the glass and elevate your mocktails

Want to take your non-alcoholic espresso martini to the next level? Try rimming your glass with cocoa powder. Just pour sugar syrup onto one shallow plate and dust another with cocoa powder. Then, dip your glass rim into the syrup, followed by a dip into the cocoa powder.

Can I add alcohol to this recipe?
