Are you looking for a way to step up your drink game this summer without the booze?
Drinks can be fun without alcohol and I’m on a mission to make lots of functional mocktails this summer.
Gone are the days when drinking mocktails were boring. As the nonalcoholic landscape continues to evolve, people are moving toward “functional” mocktails, or nonalcoholic drinks that are designed to offer health benefits beyond mere refreshment.
These drinks often contain adaptogens. Often used in Eastern medicine, adaptogens are plants and mushrooms that help your body respond to stress, anxiety, fatigue and overall well-being.
Fun drinks can be such a nice addition to any cookout, bbq, family get together or day at the beach.
According to research, Millennials, born between 1977 and 1995, and Generation Z, born between 1996 and 2009, are drinking less than the generations before them. A 2018 report from Berenberg Research found that Gen Z respondents were drinking more than 20 percent less per capita than their Millennial counterparts who already drank less than baby boomers and Gen Xers did at the same age.
Check out these 3 favorite refreshing and delicious mock-tails that you can enjoy while the temps climb higher.
Functional mocktails are changing the nonalcoholic landscape by offering a healthier, more sophisticated alternative to traditional soft drinks. They are meeting the demand for healthier beverage options, catering to mindful drinking, and showcasing the creativity of bartenders and mixologists. As the trend toward health and wellness continues to grow, functional mocktails will likely become an increasingly important part of the beverage industry. Would you try them?
