Have you been participating in Dry July? Have you found it difficult to attend an event with alcohol free options?
For many people, a party just isn’t a celebration without a glass of wine or bubbly to cheers with. But it’s important to consider your guests who might be pregnant, who are driving, for religious reasons, or for health reasons can physically not drink alcohol. Let’s face it, water is not exactly the most exciting alternative, so if you organise some fabulous alcohol free options your guests who can’t drink will feel much more part of the occasion. And for those who are drinking, they have other options to keep hydrated throughout the day/night.
Alcohol free options to consider…(Also great to include at weddings)
You could have alcohol-free daiquiris or mojitos. You could even include a signature mocktail drink.
Mockmosa: 2 parts orange juice, 3 parts white sparkling fronti
Virgin Mary: 8 tablespoons tomato juice, 1 tablespoon beef stock, 2 drops Tabasco, pinch of celery salt, 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, serve with celery stalk
Cuddles on the beach: 6 tablespoons cranberry juice, 6 tablespoons grapefruit juice, 2 tablespoons peach nectar
You can download our complimentary Edenvale mocktail list from the banner on the right ‘Celebrate with Edenvale Mocktails’
You could have a bar where guests could put together their own lemonade; you could include strawberries, blueberries, watermelon, mint, limes or honey to add with it to get creative.
Edenvales Sparkling Cuvee is a fantastic alcohol free option. It’s refreshing, fruity but not too sweet and works well with canapes and fresh fruit. An ideal drink to toast with and costing around $10 per 750ml from your local grocery store or Dan Murphy’s, it’s not going to break the bank.
Alcohol free beer
As much as we love wine, there are alcohol companies who include alcohol free beer such as Holsten and Bitburger.
Tea and coffee
If alcohol is not an option there is always caffeine to keep your guests going.
Say no to just offering orange juice
There is only so much orange juice you can drink. You don’t want any of your guests getting upset stomachs with all that acidity…
So there are you have some key alcohol free beverage ideas, we hope you have a fantastic event and celebrate well!
