Over the past few years, more and more people are choosing to go alcohol-free or are drinking less. If you’re one of those people or are hosting people who don’t drink, here’s how to make delicious non-alcoholic cocktails that are anything but boring.
Use a Non-Alcoholic Spirit
For a similar taste to an alcoholic cocktail, try a non-alcoholic spirit like Seedlip, Gnista, Spiritless Kentucky 74, or Ronsin.
Grab a Shrub
Shrubs are a vinegar-based fruit syrup that are both sweet and tangy. You can make your own with cranberries or opt for a premade one with blood oranges and ginger.
Don’t Forget Garnishes
When making non-alcoholic drinks, many people forget to add garnishes. Don’t forget to add cherries, dehydrated citrus wheels, or fruit skewered on cocktail picks.
Make a fun syrup with fruits and veggies that are in season or buy ones with interesting flavors like lemon basil or spiced honey.
Pay Attention to Glassware
When it comes to food and drinks, the way it looks is almost as important as how it tastes. Put as much care into non-alcoholic drinks as you would for alcoholic drinks by using the same glassware you would for cocktails.
