Gone are the days when alcohol was needed to have a good time. Now instead of twisting the cap on a beverage that will have you feeling horrible in the morning, people are choosing non-alcoholic drinks to avoid those nasty side effects. This is just not some fly-by-night occasion the non-alcoholic trend is sweeping the nation and taking it by storm. Pop up non-alcoholic bars are becoming more common, the “sober curious” hashtag is trending on social media, and the term, “non-alcoholic beverage” is being searched more than ever on Google. Times are shifting and at a rapid pace.
The shift couldn’t have come at a better time. The sun is shining, the weather is warm, and nature is beautifully blossoming — there’s no better time to lay back on the beach and enjoy a tasty mocktail. It’s a wonderful thing when you can get the look and feel of an alcoholic beverage but don’t have to endure the hangover in the morning. How awesome is that?
We get that people are busy and everyone just doesn’t have time to hangout at a bar or beach so we brought the delicious non alcoholic beverage recipes to you. Enjoy the savory taste of your favorite drink without leaving the comfort of your home.
