An estimated 43 percent of drinking-age Americans don’t drink alcohol. Mocktails are not just for kids anymore, and adults appreciate sophisticated options.
As mocktails gain popularity, we have sought high-quality non-alcoholic spirits to serve at our clients’ parties. We have fallen in love with Seedlip, which is made from botanicals and spices and contains no alcohol or calories. Seedlip has beautiful bottles that look great on your bar and come in three flavors: The Garden, The Grove, and The Spice. Here is our guide to using them, along with three tasty recipes. Please reach out with any questions. Cheers!
