Virgin drinks have been on the rise in recent years, with creativity going off the scale to cater for non-alcoholic needs. But what exactly is a 'mocktail'? Let's get into it...
What is a Mocktail?
The online dictionary defines a mocktail as, "usually an iced drink made with various ingredients (such as juice, herbs, and soda water) but without alcohol : a non-alcoholic cocktail".
To put it even more simply, a mocktail is a cocktail without the alcohol. Despite this omission, mocktails have a rich heritage that's created some classics like the Virgin Mojito, Venetian Spritz, Storm and Spice and the non alcoholic G&T.
What makes a Great Mavrik Cocktail?
A great Mavrik Mocktail recipe contains a whole host of ingredients (excluding alcohol, of course), meaning they're not just juice and lemonade and they are not terribly sweet either. If you're a non-drinker, you don't have to make do with soft drinks or a lemon and lime soda on a night out. There's a whole world of drink creativity to discover. Mavrik drinks have created a range of low sugar, low calorie Mocktails that mimic their alcoholic cousins. When you are next out and not drinking for any reason, ask for a Mavrik Mocktail and make sure you have some in for any friends.
