Tasting: Picnic-perfect alcohol-free drinks
Now that we can gather in groups of up to six outdoors (in England), it’s a great time to scope out the perfect drinks for your next picnic or BBQ. There are more and more alcohol-free options hitting the market, from spirits and mixers, to cocktails, and even wines. Producers are creating cans and single-serve bottles, so you can grab something quick and easy to enjoy wherever you’re heading.
As the weather improves and our social lives return, we’re spending an increasing amount of time outdoors, and you can usually find us with a cool box full of tasty af treats. These ready-to-drink products are the ideal option for a family reunion or picnic with friends. Something delicious and grown-up, that looks and feels the part.
The tasting includes brand new offerings from Lyre’s,Clean Co, Mockingbird, Thomas’s Tipples, Caleño, Stryyk , Ish and a collaboration between Cloudwater Soda and Square Root Soda.
Anja Madhvani is our in-house drinks expert. She has worked in the beer industry for 13 years, and hosted all manner of tastings. She moderates her drinking and takes extended breaks from alcohol. She will be joined by friend Chloe Chapman, who also works in the beer industry and has a wealth of experience in tasting exciting new products. Chloe suffers from chronic eczema, and has had to make some big lifestyle changes to help her manage her condition, including moderating her alcohol intake.
The tasting will be a great way to find new favourites for your future social events, and an opportunity to ask the hosts all your questions about alcohol-free drinks. We’ll also give you some tips for serving and garnishing that we’ve learned over many years of bartending. Here’s what you can expect to find in the box:
