Even way before I was pregnant there were many times when I did not drink in social settings. Some of the reasons for this included, training for a marathon, waking up early for work, not wanting a cocktail with heavy syrup and just “because I did not want to drink.” Regardless of the ‘reason’ I found it so annoying to have to explain to people why I was not drinking. What is great about the Mocktails Drinks Brand is that the founders ‘get’ it. Their own family and friends struggled with what I sometimes struggled with in social settings. Mocktails is an all natural drink company that offers ready to serve drinks in functional, beautiful and reusable martini shaker canisters (sounds like a winner, right?)!
Why was the Mocktails Drinks Brand Created?
I recently met with the Mocktails drinks brand founder, Bill Gamelli. Bill’s wife Tracy was the inspiration for creating the Mocktail company. Tracy has always been a non drinker and now she can enjoy a Mocktail! Bill says that “I can just add alcohol to my Mocktail.” From the Mocktail website:” You can add alcohol or not without sacrificing taste, style, or the experience of a having wonderful drink in your hand. Because they are ready to serve straight from our unique shaker bottle, personally customize each one by the glass. That’s not all, Mocktails Brand is made with the health-conscious consumer in mind (the ingredients are all natural) so you can be proud to serve them to anyone anytime.”
As someone that loves to host parties I have to say that Mocktails are wonderful! The drinks are delicious and the premium upscale packaging (which won them an award at the World Beverage Competition) makes for a beautiful presentation. You can pair the drinks with your favorite foods and offer your guests several Mocktail flavor options. I recently hosted a new mom brunch at my home and the Karma Sucra Cosmopolitan Mocktails were a huge hit (some of the moms added vodka to their drinks while some of the moms drank them without alcohol). I also recently gifted the Scottish Lemonade Whiskey Sour Mocktail to a dear friend of mine that has been sober for over ten years – he loved it and enjoyed sharing it with his friends that do drink.
I have had the pleasure of trying all of the Mocktail Flavors which include the Karma Sucra Cosmopolitan, the Vida Loca Margarita, the Seville Red Sangria (which reminds me of red wine) and the Scottish Lemonade Whisky Sour. Honestly I could not choose a favorite – they are all delicious and refreshing so it all depends what mood you are in. Most importantly the Mocktails do not have heavy processed (high fructose) corn syrup, are free of artificial colors and flavors, and are allergen-free, gluten-free. They have under 18 grams of sugar per 4.5 fl oz serving.
Be a great host, or a great guest. And certainly don’t forget to stock them for those baby showers where the guest of honor isn’t drinking anymore! Mocktails are a classy gift to give to anyone! Order Mocktails today!
