The 10 BEST MOCKTAILS (you STILL haven’t tried)

 

There’s a trend which came straight from New York City, the decanted capital of mixology, that we can’t help but love: the no-low cocktails, commonly known as mocktails.

Wait…. I know what you think, “Why should I order an alcohol-free cocktail on my Sunday brunch??”

The answer is simple, “Why not?!”.

The benefits of an alcohol-free cocktail, actually, are many:

  • It’s healthier. Usually made with fruit and flavored waters, it can get you a splash of Vitamins and low, good calories
  • It’s license-friendly. Whether you are the designated driver or not, you can keep up with your friends with no limits
  • It’s (usually) cheaper. Mocktail’s raw materials are not as expensive as refined spirits could be
  • It’s timeless. You can enjoy it in your brunch, happy hour, dinner or as a funny alternative at a tea-time with your friends
  • It’s safer. Nobody texted his ex after 5 mocktails. NOBODY!

That’s why we selected for you the 10 best no-low drink recipes coming from some of the best mixologist of the world, with a bit of EVAH foods’s touch. Enjoy.
