Ways to replace alcohol in Mocktails
There’s this unconventional rumor around mocktails that they are just bland but the truth is the flavors of alcohol can almost always be recreated. The only thing they can’t do is give you the buzz, they are refreshing, light and don’t give you headaches.The good outweighs the bad here. The use of Oversteeped teas, gingers, unsweetened sugarcane juice are great additions that level up your Mocktail to taste like the alcohol. Remember that the fresher your harvest and juice, greater your flavors. Citrus and orange peels can provide the bitterness to the drink.
Take our word and try these! This will be the best sober decision you’ll ever make in your life!
