In case you’re hearing it here first: mocktails are in in 2023.  For various reasons, 20-30-somethings have been exploring the art of mixology without mixing in the alcohol.  It’s become a sort of trend to make something more elevated than plain old water when you aren’t wanting the feeling or taste of a true cocktail.   And while we love all of the delicious cocktail options for the wedding bar, we think it’s great that mocktails are getting more attention on the menu.   It’s thoughtful to include yummy & pretty non-alcoholic drinks on your wedding day for your guests who don’t drink alcohol.  This way your spirit-free friends can still get the ‘gram worthy photo of a beautiful glass in hand with their perfectly done nails in front of your custom welcome sign.  It’s also nice to have a fun beverage option to help you avoid a hangover when you & your guests just want to take a little break from the bar.  With help from Seedlip & Instagram mixologist Join Jules, we’ve compiled a list of 10 mouth-watering mocktails you can be sipping this summer!

“Seedlip is on a mission to change the way the world drinks with the highest quality non-alcoholic options.”  We found five refreshing, summertime mocktail recipes on Seedlip’s site that are mixed with their natural, plant based non-alcoholic spirits.

1. Pineapple Sour

The Pineapple Sour uses the Seedlip Garden non-alcoholic spirit to create a crisp, sour mocktail to transport you to your beach honeymoon a day or two early!

2. PaNOma

The PaNOma is a *twist* on a traditional Paloma (AKA grapefruit margarita).  This more bitter-than-sweet summer mocktail uses the Seedlip Grove non-alcoholic spirit.

3. Honey Fizz

The Honey Fizz keeps things simple & sparkling this summer!  Try this mocktail out with the Seedlip Grove non-alcoholic spirit.

4. CosNOpolitan

The CosNOpolitan is a sans-vodka spin on Carrie Bradshaw’s classic.  Cosmos are the perfect summertime martini, and this one will leave you feeling clear with the Seedlip Grove non-alcoholic spirit.

5. Rhubarb Spritz

The Rhubarb Spritz gives that fruity taste of summer without being too sweet.  This sparkler is created with Seedlip Grove non-alcoholic spirit.
