Non-alcoholic spirits have been growing in popularity over the past few years, and we couldn’t be more excited! Remember when the only non-alcoholic cocktail you could get in a restaurant was the Shirley Temple? We are happy to report that those days are officially over.
In the last 5 years, we’ve seen a number of brands coming out offering non-alcoholic spirits designed to create classic cocktails for non-drinkers to enjoy. Many of these mixers are low-sugar and low calorie, as well as being completely plant-based.
Many restaurants and hotels are starting to stock non-alcoholic mixers as the market for the low, or alcohol-free drinks grow. Just because we can’t go out right now, doesn’t mean you can’t have a sophisticated, booze-free beverage. Non-alcoholic spirits are perfect to stock on your bar cart at home when you are looking to up your mocktail game.
