One’s own bartender: 5 recipes for non-alcoholic cocktails for any taste
Cocktails without alcohol? Today, on International Bartender's Day, Rubryka breaks stereotypes about "mocktails" and offers to experiment in the kitchen.
What is the problem?
"A party without cocktails or drinks is not a party." And any gatherings with friends and celebrations of family holidays with relatives are often not limited to one tea party. Familiar? Usually, a significant part of the company is not at all embarrassed by the presence of alcohol on the tables, but there are many people who dislike strong drinks. Someone has to drive, someone plans to work immediately after the party, another one doesn't accept alcohol at all. There are also options such as chronic diseases, treatment courses, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. And if the celebrations are planned for a lunch break at work, then you shouldn't expect that the boss will be happy with subordinates' glasses with something stronger than mineral water.
What is the solution?
In such cases, you don't have to sit somewhere in the corner and sadly sip tea or water. If the eyes, stomach, and soul want a holiday, and it's not alcohol, there is a solution! And they are not so few. These are the virgin versions of the most popular cocktails, or as they are called, "mocktails," fruit punches, and a variety of ice drinks (lemonade, frappe), and the so-called Spritzers (carbonated drinks).
Professional bartenders know how to prepare all these non-alcoholic delicacies. By the way, today, February 6, they celebrate their professional holiday, International Bartender's Day. Why not try yourself in their role?
