When I quit drinking I was on a quest to find any interesting beverage to have on hand to either treat myself with, or have on hand for when people dropped by with a bottle of wine or a 6-pack of beer and I wanted to drink something other than tea or water. I’m not a big pop drinker so not pepsi, etc.. In my search, I found these sparkling waters with some really unique flavours to them! I finally went on their website and noticed that they even have suggested food pairings. I took a look on their “mix” section and go excited when I saw the “sans alcohol” tab but when I clicked it and saw what looked like a large variety of virgin martini ideas, it was just their drinks poured into martini glasses hahahaha. They’re good though. I think I have tried all except for the cucumber because I can’t stand the taste or smell of cucumber.
One thing that I loved about the holiday season is the fun drinks, the drinking while socializing while everyone is in a festive spirit (and into the festive spirits harharhar) and also the whole sitting inside on a miserable day drinking spiked hot chocolate. I would be in heaven if there were non-alcoholic vodkas, irish creams and kahluas. (I’m going to be completely honest here – I bought the bailey’s non alcohol coffee creamer to put in my hot chocolate). I have found a few good recipes that I’m going to pick up the supplies for to have on hand – I can’t see anyone truly complaining if they come over for a visit and I make them a non-alcoholic bevvie! I won’t even tell them it’s a virgin, I’ll just tell them that I have a new drink recipe that I think they’ll like. Serve it in a fancy glass, accompany by some fun conversation, and don’t worry about them driving home after the visit. Sounds like a win-win to me 😀
Here’s some of the recipes I found if anyone is interested!
