We love a good cocktail or a crisp glass of wine, but sometimes you’re in the mood for a special, well-crafted drink, sans the booze. Whatever your reason for not drinking, here are 4 non-alcoholic beverages that we're loving that are just as good without the buzz.
Wilfred’s non-alcoholic aperitif makes the perfect spritz. It’s a delicious blend of rosemary, bitter orange, rhubarb and clove – bittersweet, wonderful body and beautiful color. This bittersweet aperitif was once dubbed Britain’s number-one non-alcoholic drink, and we don’t disagree. Crafted in the UK with a blend of distilled and natural botanicals—it’s got zesty-bitter orange, aromatic rosemary, plus a touch of rhubarb and clove. Let it star in all kinds of cocktails, serve it over ice with tonic, and you’ve got yourself a picture-perfect spritz without a smidge of booze. This bittersweet blend is free of artificial flavors, sweeteners, and colors. It also happens to be naturally low in calories. Win-win-win-win? We’ve lost count of the wins!
ISH Sparkling Rose & Sparkling White
Château del ISH Sparkling Rosé is everything you love in a sparkling rosé – just without the alcohol. Wonderful carbonation, beautiful pink color and a nose of tart red fruits. The proprietary blend of Merlot and Pinot Noir delivers notes of plum, strawberry and raspberry with medium acidity. You can quite literally “rosé all day” without consequence thanks to this non-alcoholic wine. Château del ISH Sparkling White is honey-forward on the nose with notes of citrus, green apple, pear and peach. It’s the perfect for a mindful lunchtime drink, cocktail hour or with meals. There’s never a bad occasion to pop some bubbly. The Sparkling White is a proprietary blend of Pinot Blanc and Silvaner grapes.
Solving the “what to drink when you’re not drinking dilemma”. Seedlip is a nonalcoholic distilled spirit that makes a killer cocktail. Mix with tonic or create your own nonalcoholic cocktail. With floral notes and sophisticated flavors, you won't even miss the alcohol. On first glance this may seem a bit pricey, but the bottle lasts for ages and it makes a great dinner party drink. Added bonus – the bottle is beautiful and looks fantastic on your shelf! We suggest the Garden variety with Fever Tree Tonic Water for a perfect combo.
